F1 Weekend 2019

Join us at Silverstone Circuit on 13 or 14 July for one of the most exciting events in the Formula 1 calendar – the Formula 1 British Grand Prix. This is your chance to witness all the race action while raising vital funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

What the event involves 

As the official charity of the 2019 Formula 1 British Grand Prix, we are looking for volunteers to represent Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity at Silverstone on Saturday 13 or Sunday 14 July 2019 by bucket collecting around the circuit. Each volunteer will have a target of raising £300 for the charity – our top bucket collectors last year raised over £1,000!

In return for your support, you will have access to our hospitality trailer where you will be provided with breakfast and a lunch, as well as snacks and drinks throughout the day. In addition, you will have the opportunity to watch all the racing action with the rest of the spectators.

Where your money will go

The money raised will go towards ensuring Great Ormond Street Hospital continues to provide the best possible care to seriously ill children from across the UK. Donations help fund pioneering paediatric research, advanced equipment, creating a home-from-home through child and family support services, and the rebuilding and refurbishment of wards and medical facilities.

Previous years

We have welcomed 80 volunteers to Silverstone who collectively raised up to £40,000 over the weekend. Here, some volunteers share some feedback from the day:

"Taking part in the F1 Challenge was loads of fun, as a big fan of Formula 1 it was always going to be a great day out but the added experience of raising money for GOSH was brilliant. I had the opportunity to watch all the races and soak up the atmosphere, it was a great challenge for a very worthwhile cause and overall a really enjoyable experience that I would definitely recommend!" - Louise, F1 Challenge Volunteer

"What an incredible day from start to finish. The events team looked after everything from parking at the track, to sun cream (when the sun appeared) and the most delicious lunch! So much fun!" - Freya, F1 Challenge Volunteer
