Porsche Roars to charity’s aid

Porsche Centre Cambridge has continued its support of the Cambridge Roar Festival, a regional festival of charity events that raises thousands of pounds for three charities: East Anglian Air Ambulance, Arthur Rank Hospice Care, and Cambridge United Community Trust.

Porsche Centre Cambridge has supported the Festival for the past four years, which raises funds by staging several high-profile events within the grounds of the Quy Mill Hotel and Spa at Stow Cum Quy. There are a total of 12 events that take place between 17 June and 30 September 2017. The next tranche of events kicks off on Thursday, 14 September with the Sporting Heroes dinner, featuring a former Olympian Goldie Sayers, stars of the motor racing world, Steve Parrish and Mark Blundell, and footballing legend, Roy McFarland.

Porsche Centre Cambridge has supplied a Roar-branded vehicle from their model range for members of the Roar team to use when they are out and about, and offered prizes at the events, including the opportunity to drive a Porsche for a weekend.

Nathan Hawkey from Porsche Centre Cambridge, said, ‘We are very proud to have been involved with the Roar Festival since day one, and it has been a real pleasure to participate in the events. To date, these events have raised over £60,000 for the chosen charities and it is expected that this figure will rise hugely by the end of this year’s festival. I not only admire the work of the Roar but the work of all three charities, each of which have a huge impact locally and regionally, either saving lives or making lives better, so it was an easy decision to continue our involvement.’

Tony Murdock, founder and chairman of the Cambridge Roar said, ‘We are hugely grateful to Porsche Centre Cambridge and all our supporters and sponsors. Without them, the Festival just wouldn’t happen and we wouldn’t be able to raise the money for these three fantastic charities.’
