Williams joins the Royal British Legion to mark Remembrance Sunday

07.11.2018: Williams will enhance its support of The Royal British Legion (RBL) for this year’s Remembrance Sunday, which marks the centenary of the end of the First World War.

Williams will enhance its support of The Royal British Legion (RBL) for this year’s Remembrance Sunday, which marks the centenary of the end of the First World War.




This year, Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day fall on the day of the Brazilian Grand Prix, providing Williams and Formula One the opportunity to help the RBL maximise awareness of their charity fundraising efforts to support those who serve and who have served.




To commemorate this special occasion, and to symbolise remembrance, the livery on the FW41 will feature a poppy and all Williams trackside staff will wear poppies over the Brazilian Grand Prix weekend.



Claire Williams, Deputy Team Principal, commented:
“It is an honour to support The Royal British Legion in commemorating the centenary of the First World War. Williams has close ties to the Armed Forces, so it is important for us to show our support on such an important day. Our activities over the weekend hope to raise funds for the Royal British Legion, while also remembering those who have given their lives in service.”




Support of The Royal British Legion will continue back at the factory in Grove. Poppies will be available for all Williams staff, including the team at Williams Advanced Engineering that work on a number of projects for the Armed Forces.



 Poppies will also be worn by our pitstop topiaries at the factory. Finally, a signed race car part will be donated to the RBL charity auction to commemorate the centenary of WW1 and to raise further funds for veterans.
