BDCI fundraising revs up with PalmerSport Racing Day

The Butchers’ and Drovers’ Charitable Institution (BDCI) are hosting a number of fundraising events this year, including the PalmerSport Racing Day.

The full-day driving event, which was created by Jonathan Palmer, takes place at the Bedford Autodrome on 2 July.

Guests will be able to drive a collection of high performance cars through six miles of track, four separate circuits and numerous run off.

The fundraising events by BDCI are organised by festival chairman Richard Canvin, who has taken over from Interfood Technology’s joint managing director James Sydenham.

Commenting on his new role, Canvin said: “It is both an honour and a privilege to be appointed as this year’s BDCI festival chairman.”

"Developed by ex Formula One racing driver Jonathan Palmer, Palmer Sport driving events are recognised as the best in the world so this is sure to appeal to the petrol-heads amongst you," he added.

Additionally, BDCI is fundraising a clay pigeon shoot on 20 May at the West Wycombe Park, just outside London, hosted by Sir Edward Dashwood.

The BDCI annual festival dinner will be hosted on 25 October at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, with live entertainment, celebrities, a silent auction and a raffle.
