Race-driving legend Sir Jackie Stewart is set to open the new headquarters of a charity later this year. 

The 'Flying Scot', who won three World Drivers' Championships in his Formula 1 career, will be cutting the ribbon of the new Moulsdale Foundation headquarters in Bishopbriggs.

Established by businessman David Moulsdale, the charity has supported hundreds of philanthropic endeavours, donating more than £33 million to charitable causes across the globe for the last three decades.

The opening ceremony will take place on November 4, ahead of a gala dinner raising money for Race Against Dementia, which was founded by Stewart after his wife was diagnosed with the condition.

Sir Jackie Stewart OBE said: “A career in F1 taught me how scientific innovation can be used to achieve extraordinary breakthroughs – and that’s exactly what Race Against Dementia was established to do: reach a breakthrough in the vital search to find a cure for this terrible disease.

"I am so grateful for David Moulsdale’s support of Race Against Dementia."

Glasgow Times:

David Moulsdale added: “I’m proud that the Moulsdale Foundation will be raising and donating funds for such a vital and worthwhile cause.

"Sir Jackie’s extraordinary drive and determination to prevent and cure this debilitating condition is every bit as inspiring as his achievements on the racetrack, and it’s a real privilege to contribute to his charity’s vital work. 

“It’s a national scandal how far dementia research continues to lag behind other conditions – and only by working together can we beat it once and for all."

The facility in Bishopbriggs will not only act as headquarters for the Moulsdale Foundation but will also be made available free of charge to other recognised charities.

The charity will provide the venue, catering, staff and food at no cost, allowing recognised charitable organisations to receive 100% of the income from their events.

It is estimated that the new venue could save the charity sector in Scotland over £500,000 per year.
