The Bill Richards Mad Dog Team
With the accumulation of the Bill Richards Mad Dog Racing Teams fund raising, a cheque was presented to the Crew of The Littlestone Lifeboat Station on Romney Marsh for a sum of £900.
This will go towards the purchase of much needed new equipment.
The fund raising comes from the sale of ‘Hot Laps’ in Bills High Spec Track Day Car.
On arrival at the circuit names are taken for the adrenaline ride of a lifetime. Bill is always fully booked within a couple of hours of starting the rides.
Littlestone Lifeboat crew would like to say a big thank you to Bill Richards and all his team for their great efforts and help in raising £900 towards more kit for the crew.
