Just before Christmas David Lidington met racing driver and local resident Mark Webber to discuss Aylesbury College Trust, which Mark is the Patron of. The Trust is designed to help provide young people with the opportunity to live a more healthy, active and sustainable life.
David and Mark discussed the work currently being undertaken alongside Aylesbury College to launch the Trust and the Mark Webber Youth Challenge which will hopefully include an event at Silverstone in 2014.
I was pleased to be able to meet Mark to discuss his plans for setting up the Mark Webber Foundation in the UK and I am happy to help in any way I can. Hopefully 2014 will see the successful launch of Mark’s foundation in the UK and the Le Mans 24 hour trophy returning with Mark to Aylesbury!
