Whilst the Burghfield BoxKart Bash is intended to be a free family fun day for the benefit of local residents, the popularity of the event means that it’s a great platform to raise money for good causes. This year we have a target of £10,000 for the benefit of the Thames Valley Air Ambulance and other local charities. All these charities provides marvellous services for our community. None are funded by Central Government nor do they receive lottery grants, they rely on charitable donations and fund raising activities to keep the services operational. So please remember, every penny we raise is all for charity, nothing is deducted, we’re all volunteers.
As a spectator you will not be charged an admission fee but you can help us to reach our target by doing the following, all of which contribute to our fund raising: Buy an Event Programme from one of our programme sellers, who will give you a big smile when you do so! It will also give you a lot of information about the event and the karts taking part.
Treat yourself and your family to refreshments - food, drinks, etc - all of which will be available throughout the afternoon Make a donation when the collection buckets come round, the funds raised go to a very good cause.
As an entrant, you can help to reach our target in three easy ways: Get sponsors for your kart – Ask your family and friends to sponsor your kart, recognising all the effort you are putting into building it and then running it on the day!
You will receive a sponsorship form from us when you apply to enter.
Corporate Entry - Get a company to sponsor your kart. For £100 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 advertising space on your kart or helmet. Sell or buy a programme page - An ad costs only £100 per page (£55 half page). Thousands will see it!
