As one of the founding sponsors, we’re working with a local charity, Child Dynamix to build a kit car in the C4DI. The project aims to bring other members of the community together with children from underprivileged backgrounds to help them gain access to mentors. We hope getting them involved in an exciting project like this will help them get inspired and involved in the digital tech / engineering sector.
Child Dynamix works with Children and Young people growing up in challenging and difficult circumstances; they might be living in families with issues like addiction to alcohol and/or drugs, domestic and other forms of abuse, a parent or sibling in prison. These children and young people often don’t have an adult they can rely on in their lives or a secure place to call home, they don’t have routine or support as they try and find their way in life. Their services and activities are developed and delivered, with these children and young people in mind. They work in the Hull and Humber region with 6,000 individuals every year.
The Kit Car scheme gives disadvantaged children and young people the chance to build, test, and race their kit cars. This provides them with an opportunity to be a part of a team, getting involved with a fantastic project, and providing them with skills they can take forward. We felt that after the success of the launch last year that we had to continue to support the Child Dynamix team to attempt to improve on the fantastic 2017 result.
Our Managing Director, Ken Sturdy, not only offers support from IT@Spectrum, but personally involves himself in the project through continual mentoring and advising the drivers and pit crew.
We are extremely excited about the launch of the Kit Car 2018 project!
