CarFest, the family festival created by radio presenter Chris Evans, is on a mission to Do More Good in 2019.
CarFest takes place in two locations across two weekends in July and August and has been described by the thousands of die-hard fans as ‘the biggest ever village fete’ with a mission to bring the true spirit of family to life. The weekend is packed to the brim with activities for every member of the family, underpinned by great music, celebrity chefs and as the name suggests, plenty of cars!
As a festival with family at its heart CarFest, is raising funds for five children’s charities this year and Starlight is honoured to be one of them! To highlight just how festival guests will be helping to ‘do more good’ this year, CarFest were proud to announce nine-year-old Oscar as Starlight’s face of the festival.
Oscar was born with Scoliosis and has undergone multiple operations as a result. Oscar’s case was severe, and despite being told his care would be palliative at just one year of age, Oscar’s surgeons have worked to improve his spine and respiratory function.
Last year Starlight granted F1-mad Oscar’s wish to attend the Grand Prix and his hero Lewis Hamilton!
Oscar said of being selected to represent Starlight Children’s Foundation:
I’m really proud that Starlight have chosen me to be their face for CarFest! Starlight made my wish to meet my idol, Lewis Hamilton, come true, and it was amazing! Since then I also got to go to their Christmas party at Downing Street which was so fun. I love fast cars and F1, so I can’t wait to go to CarFest and check out all the cars that will be there… it’s like I’ve been granted another wish!
