Race winner Will Aspin is delighted to be supporting Yorkshire Children’s Charity throughout the rest of the 2022 Porsche Carrera Cup GB season, helping to raise awareness of its excellent work in the county.
Although based in Florence, Italy, the 17-year-old and his family have close ties to Yorkshire, championing Leeds and the wider region, including with the Munroe K-operated White Rose Park, home to global names such as HSBC, Capita and DAZN, which is boosting the South Leeds area.
On top of this, the company is behind the construction of the new White Rose Railway Station. Whilst the concrete for the new station is being poured, the foundations being laid aren’t just for the station but for an improved public transport system that will be a catalyst for economic development.
That belief in the local area matches perfectly with the goals of the Yorkshire Children’s Charity, in improving the lives of children at a disadvantage from the Yorkshire Dales through to inner city Sheffield.
It is estimated that there are 350,000 children in Yorkshire that are living in poverty, with those figures coming before the cost-of-living crisis, while 90,000 children with disabilities called Yorkshire their home.
Yorkshire Children’s Charity aims to support parents, as they struggle to articulate the needs of their children. The pandemic had a massive impact on the charity sector, with lots of funding that was there suddenly disappeared overnight. Therefore, waiting lists with charities became much longer for children needing help and support.

Will is hoping to bring further awareness to the Charity and its aims throughout the season and recently provided his Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car to be on display at an event in Yorkshire.
