RACING driver Daniel Lloyd has pledged to donate a portion of his motorsport winnings to Kirkwood Hospice.
Single-seater racer Daniel, 18, from Scammonden, was joint eighth on the leaderboard last month in his first season at the BF Goodrich/Skip Barber National Championship in the USA.
Daniel’s motorsport career started in go-karting in Batley in 2003.
Since then he’s secured victories in the Ginetta championship and the Elf Renault Clio Cup before making the trip stateside.
Daniel said: “Kirkwood Hospice does an unbelievable job in my local area for people suffering from awful illnesses and I feel it’s important to do my bit to help boost awareness of the work the hospice does and to also try and raise as much money as I can through my racing.”
Jane Dutton, events fundraiser at the hospice, said: “It’s great that this local young man, with so much sporting talent, has chosen to support his local charity. We are really looking forward to working with Daniel.”
The Dalton-based hospice provides vital, specialist care for people across the Kirklees area with life-threatening illnesses.
