Renault helps childrens’ charities

The Renault F1 team will be helping the BBC’s annual Children in Need appeal – a fundraising marathon which raises money for disadvantaged children throughout the UK.

Throughout Friday, some of the Renault team will be trying out X-biking – essentially static mountain biking. The Renault team already use these machines in their driver development training schemes. However, there will be a twist in the tale – the Renault F1 team will be taking part in fancy dress. Approximately 50 members of the Enstone factory wll be taking part and ideas have ranged from Formula 1 flameproof mechanics overalls to wedding dresses.

It should be a fun event to help raise funds for great charities. You can donate to Children in Need by phone, internet, in your local bank or post office, by post, or by paypal. To find out more, or to donate now, click here.

And if you’re in the UK, remember to watch the Children in Need appeal night – 7pm – 1.25am, BBC1. Along with the Renault team, plenty of stars have signed up including Emma Bunton, Rory Bremner, Status Quo, Girls Aloud, Stephen Fry and many more.
