Fundraising Info

The Box Kart Bash is intended to be a family fun day for the benefit of local community. It is held before the summer holidays so that it gives families and individuals a project throughout the spring and longer days, and allows schools and other groups to work on their karts before the summer holidays.

The popularity and fun of the event means that it’s a great platform to raise money for good causes. This year we have a target of £20,000 – Remember it’s all done for charity. All of us involved in running it are volunteers.

We have set a target to raise £200 for each team that participates. If you have four people in your team, that is £50 each.

We believe this is easily achievable and expect most of you will raise much more for your nominated charity.

You can help to reach this target in three easy ways:

Sponsorship

Download and print our Sponsorship Form then get your friends, family, neighbours, teachers, work colleagues, your boss, the postman to write down the amount they will sponsor you or your team for taking part in the event.

Programmes

Sell or buy a programme page – An ad costs only £100 per page (£50 half page). Thousands will see it!

Corporate/Business support

Find a kart sponsor – Get a company to sponsor your kart. For £50 corporate entries can have their own banner displayed along the Course and be mentioned by the event commentator throughout the afternoon. It is also a fun day for your supporters. Entering a kart can also be a good team building exercise and you can even raise money by selling space on your kart or helmet.
