ON YOUR marks, get set, go karting! That’s the instruction from Six Sixty, a local charity whose organisers include Christians from local churches.

The group are organising go kart race and fun day on Sunday, July 1 at Laurel Park in Earley. Taking place from 2pm to 5pm, the afternoon will see families race their home-made karts in a series of heats. As well as the racing, there will be a host of activities including face-painting, a barbecue, live entertainment, bouncy castles and cakes. The minimum age to take part in the kart racing is five and it costs £5 per kart to enter. The group is organising a workshop for those who need some help in constructing a kart. Money raise from the day will go to Six Sixty, which has a vision to create a place for local people to relax, enjoy coffee and provide a safe space or children to play. It will also support two local charities and give a donation to a project in Uganda.
