Prince Harry Raises Money for Charity

By: Alexandria Sardam - February 20, 2014

While it’s usually Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince Williams making headlines these days, Prince Harry recently grabbed some attention for racing cars and raising money.

The 29-year-old visited the Goodwood Motor Circuit in Chichester, West Sussex for a track day on Saturday, Feb. 15. While there, the royal met with injured services personnel who have benefited from and who are supported by The Endeavour Fund.

The Endeavour Fund helps injured service men and women rediscover their self-belief through physical challenges.

At the track, Harry and the service personnel were given the opportunity to drive the classic cars.

According to the BBC, one female member of staff was given the task of looking after the prince’s shoes while he raced.

Harry was spotted driving an Aston Martin and a Jaguar.

Prince Harry later traveled to the Boultbee Flight Academy at the Goodwood Aerodrome to launch the Spitfire Flight Scholarship for wounded ex-service personnel. That too was part of The Endeavour Fund.

The Apache helicopter pilot took several photographs in the cockpit of a Spitfire Aircraft. Prince Harry then signed the cockpit with his name and squadron number.
