Mar­shall Jaguar helps mark spe­cial birth­day

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Motors Today -

Mar­shall Jaguar in Peter­bor­ough helped put the ic­ing on the cake for a very spe­cial 70th birth­day sur­prise when they lent a Jaguar XF as part of the cel­e­bra­tion.

Yvonne Bles­sett had been plan­ning some­thing dif­fer­ent for months to mark her hus­band’s re­cent birth­day.

In­stead of opt­ing for some­thing more tra­di­tional, she ar­ranged for her Jaguar-en­thu­si­ast hus­band, Danny, to take a tour of the im­pres­sive Jaguar assem­bly plant at Cas­tle Bromwich, in Birm­ing­ham.

And when Mar­shall Jaguar heard what was hap­pen­ing from Jaguar UK bosses they stepped for­ward with the loan of an XF for the day, so Yvonne and Danny, who live near Bourne in Lin­colnshire, could travel in style.

It was also ex­tra emo­tional for Yvonne be­cause her fa­ther helped build Spit­fire’s at the fac­tory be­fore he joined the RAF to fight in the Sec­ond World War.

Yvonne said: “We man­aged to keep the birth­day sur­prise se­cret un­til the night be­fore. It turned out to be a great day and my thanks go to Mar­shall Jaguar for all its help for go­ing that ex­tra mile.”

High­lights of the tour in­cluded see­ing the all-new XJ pro­duc­tion line plus the test­ing area.

Daniel Cooper, gen­eral man­ager at Mar­shall Jaguar in Peter­bor­ough, said: “We were only too glad to help and are de­lighted that they had such a fan­tas­tic time.”
