Driving with a difference Manchester based Insurance Broker Caunce O’Hara raised their clubs to local charities Claire House and Speed of Sight recently at their biennial golf day. Taking place at the Worsley Marriot Hotel & Country Club, guests tested their limits as they were challenged to take their shot of the day completely blindfolded at the par 3 14th hole, in honour of blind charity, Speed of Sight. Raising over £5,000, Caunce O’Hara used the funds to arrange a track day with a difference for their chosen charity Claire House based on the Wirral. At the beginning of September both charities came together to enjoy a driving experience like no other at the Three Sisters Race Course in Wigan.

Children of Claire House and their families took to the tracks with nine-time world record holder Mike Newman, also known as the fastest blind man on the planet, as they got to not only experience driving for the first time but experience driving a race car. Stephen Darcy, MD at Caunce O’Hara commented, “Combining the two charities allows us to create an event day like no other. “We can give the children of Claire House and their families a once in a lifetime opportunity that may otherwise be out of reach. “Experiencing the independence of driving, a simple task we take for granted each day, the children of Claire House can build their self-confidence and create special memories with their families they

can cherish forever. “On top of that, the money raised allowed Speed of Sight to continue their mission in being able to host unique driving days for disabled adults and children.” Corporate Fundraising Manager for Claire House, Tony Langan, said; “Claire House Children’s Hospice exists to help families with seriously ill children create memories that will last a lifetime. Thanks to our friends Caunce O’Hara, that’s exactly

what we’ll be able to do with this amazing driving experience. We’re so grateful for their continued support for Claire House.”
