Margo makes £13k!

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This week -

A Mini re­stored to raise funds to beat can­cer has been snapped up at the NEC – af­ter its new owner saw the car in Classic Car Weekly.

Haydn Davies found out about the 1969 Mini, which has been re­stored by the MG Own­ers’ Club at its work­shop in Cam­bridgeshire, af­ter read­ing about it in our 2 November is­sue. The car, Margo, funded by Lan­caster In­surance, was auc­tioned off by Sil­ver­stone Auc­tions for £12,938 at the show to raise funds for Prostate Can­cer UK.

Haydn says: ‘As soon as I saw Margo in CCW I knew she would be a perfect Christ­mas gift for my wife. I trav­elled to the show just to bid for it, and to say I’m thrilled we now own it is an un­der­state­ment. Know­ing the money goes to a good cause tops it off.’

Richard Mor­ley, di­vi­sional head at Lan­caster In­surance, says the fundrais­ing pro­ject was of ma­jor im­por­tance as 47,000 men a year in the UK are di­ag­nosed with prostate can­cer. ‘We’re thrilled Haydn was so pas­sion­ate about being Margo’s

new owner,’ he says. www.find­mini­a­home. com
