As part of our Together Karting initiative and in partnership with our charity Absolutely Together, we gave 100 families that have children and young people with additional needs free go-karting experiences during the summer holidays.
Designed to foster inclusivity, the initiative allowed families to enjoy an exhilarating activity together, which may otherwise be out of reach.
Together Karting proved to be a resounding success, with families relishing the chance to engage in an activity that catered to all members, regardless of their needs.
David Brind from Absolutely Together, which provides free access to leisure activities to families with young people who require extra support, commented:
“At Absolutely Together, our mission is to combat social isolation and support those who need it most. The Together Karting programme has proven to be a vital part of our work, as it not only offers thrilling experiences but also fosters connections and a sense of belonging within our community. We’re immensely grateful to Absolutely Karting for their unwavering commitment to this cause.”
We are dedicated to continuing our support for Absolutely Together’s mission by providing ongoing free go-karting sessions to the families supported by the charity. Our indoor karting tracks in Bristol and Maidenhead open up the tracks on Saturday and Sunday mornings and Thursday afternoons for families, who will take part in a short safety briefing before every member has the chance to take to the track together.
Naomi Smith from Absolutely Karting added:
“Partnering with Absolutely Together has allowed us to extend our passion for karting to families who may not have had the opportunity otherwise, and we’re delighted that 100 families were able to enjoy the thrill of the track over the summer.
“We have specially adapted go-karts, which allow those with additional needs to have as much or as little control as they want while being driven around the track by one of our expert instructors. We are committed to continuing this journey and providing a platform where everyone can enjoy go-karting – we look forward to welcoming more families.”
