This weekend at the Silverstone F1 Grand Prix, the Rotary Club of Towcester provided the VIP chauffeurs for all attendees arriving at the event by helicopter.
Armed with a fleet of cars, The Rotary Club of Towcester collected guests as they arrived at the heliport and took them to their hospitality suites, as well as operating a shuttle service between the various hospitality locations. Besides the actual driving, the work also entailed a lot of co-ordination and team-work, which was done via walkie-talkies and a centralised reception area.
In return for providing this service over the three-day period, Silverstone Helicopters kindly donates an amount of money to the Rotary Club of Towcester’s charity fund, which enables the club to carry out many of its charitable activities in the local area.
The Rotary Club of Towcester has been providing this service for over 20 years now and although hard work, the Rotarians, their families and friends relish being part of this spectacular sporting event, so important, not only to the UK but also to the local economy.
