Davison brings V8 buzz to kids
WILL Davison put smiles on the faces of families with sick children at the city’s Ronald McDonald house and he’s hoping the visit might give him the inspiration he needs to tackle this weekend’s racing.
Back in 2013, Davsion visited the North Queensland house and was given a bracelet by one of the residents, just days before he went on to win the main race. Davison is hoping his latest visit yesterday could also bring luck.
Davison and his Erebus Motorsport team donated a hot lap to the charity, which was raffled off for $ 2600.
“Any time you can give back to the community is a good opportunity,” he said. “Just being here and hanging with kids, if they get a smile out of it, it’s a really amazing ex- perience you’ll take with you.” The North Queensland House’s Brad Hastewell said the money raised from the raffle would cover the equivalent costs of accommodating a family for 40 nights.
“The children staying here are not from Townsville so they don’t get the V8 buzz from where they are,” Mr Hastewell said. “So coming here is a fantastic experience for them so they can actually interact with the drivers we get.”
GOOD LUCK CHARMS: Will Davison with Brandon Dahler, 13, Teliah Knight, 6, Liam Moon, 5, Justice Renton, 10, and Oscar Renton, 9.
