JLL Canary Wharf is sponsoring two go-karts in London Play’s Girl-Kart Build and Race event, which takes place at Mudchute Farm, Canary Wharf.
Supported by female racing driver, Susie Wolff, 13 teams of young women and girls will gather in a field at Mudchute Farm, in the shadow of Canary Wharf, each given a pile of wood, wheels, some metal bits, and a few tools. The teams have four hours to build a go-kart from scratch and then they will race them.
As well as donating £250 per go-kart, a team from JLL’s residential agency will participate in the building of its two go-karts.
Charlotte Malone, Director at JLL Canary Wharf, said, “It’s the second year that we’ll participate in this fantastic event and we’re really looking forward to it. It’s great to be able to continue supporting London Play who does such great work tackling the important issue of exclusion, and giving children the much needed opportunity to play.”
