SolarFox: Supports Great Ormond Street

The SolarFox team has decided to add an extra dimension to their World Solar Challenge efforts by raising money for charity. Our chosen charity is Great Ormond Street, a childrens hospital which has special meaning for team members Richard and Nicki, whose son Barnaby was looked after there. Barnaby's skills were an invaluable asset throughout the build and testing process, as demonstrated in the photo, and the team are very grateful for his suggestion of the use of his school playground for preliminary testing.
