Some of the UK’s most expensive luxury cars lined up at Meadowhall this weekend and raised more than £6,500 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
More than 80 of the most desirable motors such as Lamborghinis and Porsches, descended on the Centre on Saturday for the charity’s much anticipated “Supercar Experience”, which was organised by Supercar Driver.
Thousands turned out to see the spectacle where fans and enthusiasts were asked for a donation for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in exchange for a photograph with their favourite car, or for some lucky passengers a dream ride in these prized possessions.
JCT600, John Holland Car Sales and Sytner BMW Sheffield were also in attendance with a mouth-watering range of supercars to get up close and personal with.
Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice is Meadowhall’s chosen charity for 2016/2017 and cares for children and young adults with a shortened life expectancy and a range of complex medical needs, and their families.
Meadowhall Events Manager, Alex Caley commented: “It was an unbelievable day, the range of cars was breath-taking. It is something to see one or two nice cars on the road but this was luxury in a league all of its own.”
Julie Hampson, Corporate Fundraiser for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, said: “Supercar Driver have supported Bluebell Wood for the last five years and have raised over £30,000. Saturday’s tally adds over £6,500 to that total which is fantastic news for both the staff and all the families who we support. To see that many desirable cars all in one place really was a spectacular sight. We are very grateful for all the donations we receive, and it is events such as these which help keep our doors open so thank you to everyone involved.”
Adam Thorby, director of Supercar Driver, who helped organise the day, added: “We were thrilled with the event on the whole, the reception from everyone who came to see the cars despite the weather, was hugely positive. A special mention to our members gave up their time to display their cars – without them it wouldn’t been possible. Same again next year?”
