Scottish Racing legend Sir Jackie Stewart OBE was joined by fellow motorsport stars in Bishopbriggs for a spectacular event.

The three-time Formula One World Champion looked to raise funds for Race Against Dementia (RAD) - a charity that he set up after his wife, Lady Stewart, was diagnosed with the condition.

The gala ball, which took place at the new Moulsdale Foundation headquarters in Bishopbriggs recently, was able to raise £150,000 to help aid RAD’s research into the prevention and treatment of dementia.

Also in attendance were other Scottish motorsport stars such as David Coulthard MBE and Allan McNish, as well as Andy Cameron MBE, Mark Stewart, and Rona MacKay MSP.

Speaking about the funds raised, Sir Jackie Stewart OBE said: “Dementia is an urgent and accelerating problem that will take ingenuity and ambition to solve.

"By ensuring that the most promising and groundbreaking research gets the funding it needs, we can put ourselves in pole position to find a cure.

"David has been a wonderful supporter of Race Against Dementia for many years and I’m grateful for everything he has done.”

David Moulsdale, a businessman and founder of the Moulsdale Foundation, has supported Race Against Dementia since 2019, organising various high-visibility fundraising activities.

The Moulsdale Foundation’s new facility in Bishopbriggs will not only act as its headquarters but the 2000-capacity events venue will also be made available free of charge to other recognised charities.

In 2024, the Foundation is planning to host events for up to 12 charities with all proceeds from table sales and other fundraising going directly to the charity

David added: "Dementia is a global crisis and without a cure, one in three people born today will develop the disease.

"Like Sir Jackie, I too have personal experience of how dementia can devastate a family and together, we are taking action.

“I’m delighted that the new headquarters is now open, and look forward to welcoming charities from across Scotland, and supporting their vital work.”
