Staff at West Midlands based Footman James supported the initiative to show off their classic cars, following the announcement by BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans on his breakfast radio show on Monday 24 March.

Andy Fairchild, Footman James’ Managing Director said, “We thoroughly support such initiatives which bring classic cars out into the public arena. Many of our employees are classic car enthusiasts themselves so what better way to show them off by supporting such a fantastic idea!”
Chris Evans is well known for his love of cars, especially the classic variety. In typical Evans style, there were no rules for National Classic Car Day!
Andy Fairchild felt that the combination of classic cars and donating money to the Children in Need charity showed the charitable spirit that runs deep in the classic car industry and in Footman James. “Our staff were proud to show off their pride and joys and support such a worthwhile charity was the icing on the cake!”
