Racing for a Cause: Introducing the Bernie Kelly International Ladies Charity Race at the VDM Festival

The VDM Committee is pleased to announce the addition of the “Bernie Kelly International Ladies Charity Race” to the Vincent Delaney Memorial Festival weekend!
The race is named after Bernie Kelly who served as racing secretary, organizer and stalwart supporter of the Delaney family since the inception of the VDM Racing Weekend. Bernie sadly passed away in 2019 after a tough battle with cancer.
The “Bernie Kelly International Ladies Charity Race” will raise money for Cancer Trials. This charity works to maximize access to cancer trials in order to expand cancer research and also prolong patient lives. More information on the charity can be found at www.cancertrials.ie. There is also a GoFundMe that can be found at https://www.gofundme.com/f/bernie-kelly-international-ladies-race-fundraiser
“Bernie was a firecracker of a woman who was full of life,” says VDM Chairman Derek Delaney, “and her presence is felt not only on the race day itself but during the whole planning process. It feels right to be able to do this in her honor”
The drivers (subject to change) will be:
• Charlie Flanagan – Ireland
• Chelsie O’Driscoll – Ireland
• Grace Kelly – Ireland
• Alexis Laidler – United Kingdom
• Claire Bousfield – United Kingdom
