Brothers Glynn and Lee Norvall today launched their 2016 P1 Superstock challenge at Tedworth House, Wiltshire and announced their intention to support the UK Charity, Help for Heroes.
Founded in 2007, Help for Heroes provides direct, practical support for wounded, injured and sick servicemen, women and veterans and their loved ones. This is done through grants to individuals and specialist charity partners, together with recovery services delivered through its national network of centres.
Mark Elliott from Help for Heroes commented,
We are delighted that E.Marine Racing has chosen Help for Heroes as its Charity of the Year partner for 2016 and we are looking forward to working together, with the full backing of Powerboat P1.
This is another wonderful partnership to raise much needed funds to help our wounded, sick and injured Heroes in their journey to recovery.
We wish Glynn and Lee and their E.Marine Racing Team the very best for a successful season. Best of luck….. See you on the water!
Tedworth House is fully adapted and offers over 50 en-suite bedrooms and four family suites. The Centre has a range of specialist rooms for adaptive sports, education courses, relaxation and socialising which have been designed to ensure the best possible recovery.
It is also home to the Phoenix Centre, a state of the art gym complex with some of the UK’s most advanced adaptive sporting facilities. The Centre includes a Skiplex, SwimEx, strength & conditioning gym, steam room, sauna and sports hall with a sprung floor.
The Norvall brothers are following in the footsteps of their father Doug, who built and raced the very first catamaran in Offshore Racing 53 years ago.
Today’s launch underpin’s our relationship with Help for Heroes. We hope to raise £25,000 this coming season as we travel around Britain on the P1 Superstock tour.
We look forward to seeing people not only supporting us, but more importantly, this worthy cause.
