Motor industry giant becomes ambassador for charity
Automotive entrepreneur and former chairman of Aston Martin, Andy Palmer, joins Speed Of Sight charity as an ambassador.
Speed Of Sight is run by blind race car driver and multiple World Record holder Mike Newman and his co-founder John Galloway. The charity hosts driving experiences for children and adults with disabilities.
With more than 40 years of experience in the automotive sector, Andy Palmer has made his mark on the industry and created a lasting legacy.
Andy said: “I’m thrilled to be asked to be an ambassador for Speed Of Sight. While I’ve not known the charity long, and unfortunately can’t visit due to the pandemic restrictions, I know that the work it does is something that is life changing to many people, and as soon as it’s safe to visit the team at the charity and attend a track day, I’ll be there!
“I hope that my knowledge of the industry and experience with different vehicle manufacturers is something that will bring benefits, whether it’s the connections I have or the different ideas I can come up with to assist the charity, I’ll be there to help it wherever I can.”
Andy joins a multitude of other high profile people who have become ambassadors for the charity, including actors Kelvin Fletcher and Kate Anthony, racing drivers, Martin Plowman and Moh Ritson, TV motoring presenter, Vicki Butler-Henderson and the charity’s Patron, Gina Campbell.
Speed Of Sight runs events which empower disabled people of all ages. These events, held nationwide, allow a disabled child or adult a chance to forget, if only for a little while, that they have a disability.
