A date has been set for the Mark Webber Youth Challenge.

On Thursday, May 29, the Aylesbury College Trust (ACT) charity will host a corporate lunch with ex Formula 1 racing driver Webber.

ACT was set up last year to help young people with financial need to develop their skills and their education. Teams from Aylesbury College, Amersham and Wycombe College, and Buckinghamshire New University, will travel to Silverstone to compete in a series of endurance activities and challenges with an emphasis on fun and teamwork.

Karen Mitchell, principal of Aylesbury College, said: “It is hugely important to ensure additional financial support for those young people in education who are trying to overcome difficulties, but who, with the right encouragement and assistance, can go on to achieve great things.”
