Formula for Success Motor Racing Dinner raises over £68,000 for charity




Hope for Tomorrow's flagship fundraising event ‘Formula for Success' lived up to its name on Thursday 16thMay when charity Patrons from the motor racing world along with over 200 guests helped raised just over a staggering £68,000. 


This exclusive, interactive event with guests from the world of British motor racing, including Brawn GP, was an evening not to be missed and was held at The Leonardo Royal Hotel London City, London, EC3.


10 years on from Brawn GP's spectacular World Championship win, Martin Brundle held a candid interview with Ross Brawn to discover the story behind the team's formula for success, and to hear stories from behind the scenes and beyond the track.


Guests got to ask their own questions to the motor racing legends who were present which included, David Richards CBE, Derek Bell MBE, David Brabham and Nick Fry, all of whom are patrons of the charity Hope for Tomorrow.


Martin Brundle says: "It was fascinating to hear from Ross himself in a unique setting about the extraordinary achievement of ‘Brawn' and Jenson Button winning the 2009 F1 World Championship, a team and iconic livery which existed for one glorious year. The other inside stories from the charity patrons were fascinating and I am thrilled that so much money was raised for such a worthwhile cause"

About Hope for Tomorrow


Hope for Tomorrow is a dedicated charity, bringing cancer care closer to patients' homes via our Mobile Cancer Care Units (MCCUs).

Fighting cancer is one of the hardest things any one will ever have to do, even without the additional stress of spending hours travelling long distances to hospitals to receive treatment. This is why Hope for Tomorrow brings cancer care closer to patient's homes, to ease the strains of travel and to give them more time with their loved ones, but they are asking for your support in their Appeal.


We work in a unique partnership with the NHS helping to ease capacity challenges at hospital trusts. We now have 10 MCCUs operational in Gloucestershire, Somerset, South Wiltshire, East Kent, Lincolnshire, Cornwall, West Suffolk, East Essex, London/ Surrey and West Yorkshire, with two reserve MCCUs in place to ensure continuity of service during the maintenance schedule. We also provide a Nurses Support Vehicle with each MCCU, which allows the nursing team to travel to and from the daily treatment locations.

The charity won a Queen's Award for Enterprise - Innovation, in 2016. The Award is the UK's highest accolade for business success, and was made in recognition of our achievements since the Founder, Christine Mills MBE, set up Hope for Tomorrow in 2003.
