Sir Stirling Moss leads legends' support for a good cause.

Sir Stirling Moss and Derek Bell. Two legends.

Three legends from the world of motor sport – Sir Stirling Moss OBE, Sir Jack Brabham OBE and Derek Bell MBE – are Patrons of the unique cancer charity, Hope for Tomorrow. (We telly types seem to recall Sir Stirling appearing on "Celebrity Cash in the Attic" some time ago to support this effort. It's great that he puts so much time into it!)

Funds raised at the Goodwood Revival will go towards building a Mobile Chemotherapy Unit to benefit patients in Sussex and the surrounding areas.

Owned and maintained by the charity and operated by highly trained NHS staff, these well-equipped units allow cancer patients to receive treatment in a restful environment closer to home, saving stressful long distance travel and minimising waiting times.

Currently Mobile Chemotherapy Units are operating in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Somerset and soon also Wiltshire.

No, you can't race it, but it's a worthwhile thing to support!
At the Hope for Tomorrow airstream Stirling Moss will be signing a unique limited edition print which has been produced featuring his famous victory in the 1961 Tourist Trophy driving the Rob Walker Ferrari 250 SWB


Revival visitors will be able to view the Hope for Tomorrow’s Mobile Chemotherapy Unit and chat to the team. (we wonder how it gets around the "No vehicles after 1965 rule" OD)
