Ginetta GT Supercup racer Marcus Hoggarth has donated a massive £45,000 to Scotty’s Little Soldiers; a charity dedicated to supporting the children of men and women killed in action while serving with the British Armed Forces.
Presenting the cheque on behalf of Cranswick plc, Hoggarth invited Stuart Robinson, Chief Operating Officer at Scotty’s Little Soldiers along to the Snetterton 300 Circuit in Norfolk this weekend to see him in action in his other line of work; as a racing driver.
Hoggarth, a parent himself, is currently contesting the Ginetta GT Supercup, which runs in support of the British Touring Car Package at circuits across the UK, and he hopes this donation will help to improve the lives of children of the fallen in the British Armed Forces.
Founded by army widow Nikki Scott, Scotty’s Little Soldiers provides treats, trips and activities for families of the fallen with the aim of offering a respite – however brief - from the daily ups and downs of coping without a loved one.
