KIDS AND CARS WERE STARS AT LES HOEY MBE DREAMMAKER CHARITY DAY


MOTHERWELL striker Louis Moult and ex Hamilton Accies legend Jose Quitongo helped put smiles on the faces of sick kids at a supercarday. 

Businessmen and women from across Scotland brought 120 cars worth twenty million pounds of cars to Hamilton Park racecourse to entertain 125 kids for the Les Hoey MBE Dreammaker Foundation. 

Motherwell striker Louis who brought his wife Carlie and two and a half year old daughter Isla with him said: "It's great to see all the kids today and to be able to help out. I left my own car in the car park because it wasn't up to scratch."

He refused to comment on rumours he might be joining Rangers but said he was enjoying his time in Scotland.

Amongst the kids who lapped up the atmosphere were David Carr, 8, from Grangemouth who had been going through treatment for two years for a brain tumour. 

He said: "It's really good. I saw some expensive cars I'd definitely not like to drive when I'm an adult because I feel I wouldn't have a license after I drove them."

Nine year old William Crossan from Neilston  who was also diagnosed with a brain tumour was also eyeing up the blue Audi R8. His mum Rachael said: "He has a hospital appointment tomorrow and a day like today takes his mind off it."

Les Hoey MBE added: "This event has got bigger every year. It's sad when you see how many kids there are but it helps them to forget about their illness during the time they are here."
