Advice firm raises £60,000 for charity with track day

Financial planning firm HFMC Wealth has helped raise more than £60,000 for two charities after sponsoring a track day at the Goodwood Motor Circuit.

The Veloce 2018 event saw 70 attendees driven around the track by a host of former racing drivers in one of the 20 cars valued at more than £100m.

The event raised money for two charities: Hope for Tomorrow, which uses mobile chemotherapy units to help bring cancer treatment closer to patients’ homes, and Wings for Life, which researches traumatic spinal cord injury with the goal of curing all people affected by paralysis.

Marcus Carlton, private client director at HFMC, said: "Veloce 2018 combined three things which are important to us: fun, memories and social responsibility.

"Our team create financial plans which enable clients to indulge their passions and achieve their life's aspirations.

"We will be sponsoring the event again in 2019 and look forward to raising even more money."

Drivers at the event included former F1 world champion Damon Hill, Indy car champion and 12-hours Sebring winner Dario Franchitti and LeMans winner Andy Wallace.

HFMC Wealth is a chartered financial planning firm based in London and Weybridge which was founded in 1986 and is owned by its employees.
