West Midlands, United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 12 April 2014
Footman James is insuring a 1970 MG Roadster in order for it to travel to a number of high profile events throughout the UK to raise awareness of the restoration project.
The car’s owner – Sergeant Jason Sheehan, a serving British Army officer, based in York – has been restoring the MG for the past two years in aid of Help for Heroes and The Royal British Legion. Restored using donated parts, Jason now plans to raffle the car with all profits going to the two charities with £5 tickets limited to 1200.
The Roadster will make a special appearance at The Practical Classics Restoration Show at Birmingham’s NEC this weekend on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 April.
Andy Fairchild, Footman James’ Managing Director said, “We are absolutely delighted to be able to support Jason’s restoration project in aid of such worthwhile charities. By doing so, we are sustaining and encouraging interest and passion in the classics movement. Congratulations to Jason for his hard work so far; we are sure tickets for the raffle will sell out fast!”
Sergeant Jason Sheehan explained, “Restoring such a beautiful classic over the last two years has been a real labour of love. It’s not been without its ups and downs and now we are finally nearing completion! Supporting the two charities so close to our hearts has always been our ultimate aim and we would like to thank Footman James for ensuring – and insuring! – the car so we can continue to raise awareness about the project.”
