Racing to help others

Presentation in the chamber
Presentation in the chamber

Throughout 2014, the Manx Kart Club members have been racing in the kart endurance championship. As part of the racing, charitable donations are taken off each race entry and charities nominated by the members.

This year, one of the charities chosen was the Hyperbaric Chamber, and pictured are MKC committee members Dean Ayres and Garey Ellison (L-R) presenting a cheque for £482 to Debbie Barron in one of the chambers at the facility.

Including in the donation was £132 raised by kart racer Dan Crossley – who rather gallantly agreed to having his beard removed following the championship presentation and nominated the Hyperbaric Chamber to receive the donations gathered from everyone in the Cat with no Tail!
