The charitable organisation supports both local and national causes
Recent Bishop Grosseteste University alum Laurent McCready is supporting important causes through fundraising efforts and charity supercar events.
Initially conceived as a business venture, LincsAutoClub aims to create a community of local people with an interest in supercars – luxury and performance – as well as classic motors.
Alongside Co-Founders Will Hunter, Blake Keal, Sam Fearn, and Will Johns, Education Studies graduate Laurent was keen to collaborate with other small businesses by hosting events at local coffee shops, country parks, and even the bomber command centre.
After a few successful events, the team saw an opportunity to use their time and efforts to raise money for good causes. Since then, LincsAutoClub has supported a variety of charities including Cancer Research UK, Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, and Lincolnshire Emergency Blood Bikes Service.
The team also like to get out and about in the local area, taking part in the annual Santa Fun Run and using money raised to provide meals to vulnerable people over winter.
According to Laurent, the team is not only driven by their shared love of cars, but by their desire to give back to the local community. He said: “We have an amazing community of guests supporting LincsAutoClub who all enjoy the fundraising events.
“I just want to help other people and the charity work we do enables us to see the difference we make first hand.”
