The Victoria Foundation inaugural sports dinner with Special Guest Professor Gordon Murray was a great success with over 100 guests attending the sell-out event at Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club in Richmond. Guests enjoyed a welcome reception, fabulous dinner before a fascinating presentation by Professor Gordon Murray.
Gordon looked back at his career in Grand Prix racing over the years, shared his views on today’s world with the way rules and technology are changing the sport. The audience were eager to hear more of his extraordinary career in Formula One and how the creation of Gordon Murray Design will transform the future of the vehicle industry from everyday cars to commercial transport and much more. This was followed by a lively Q & A session with no shortage of wide ranging questions from guests.
£7,000 was raised from the proceeds of the auctions, raffle, sponsorship of the Welcome Reception by New Victoria Hospital, and a donation from ticket sales. Graham Ball, Founder and CEO of The Victoria Foundation said, “I am delighted the evening was such a success and so well attended. The charity is hugely grateful to Professor Gordon Murray for being such an entertaining guest and for donating such fabulous prizes, to Richard Poulter for also donating marvellous prizes and making the event possible, and for all the wonderful support from guests during the evening. The funds raised will help to ensure The Victoria Foundation can transform more lives.”
