British Envision Virgin Racing driver Sam Bird has run a half-marathon alongside 35 other BRDC members to raise money for NHS staff and volunteers during the coronavirus pandemic.
The British Racing Drivers’ Club members each ran a half-marathon (21.1km) separately around their local areas, in order to raise vital funds to support NHS charities in the UK. Bird set his initial fundraising target at £10,000 but as more drivers entered the campaign this target was quickly met.
With all drivers, and honorary member Iwan Thomas MBE, completing the half-marathon on Saturday 18th, the total currently sits at over £30,000 worth of donations.
