Fan of Paul Weller? Well then this one is for you. The mod rock legend has crafted and designed his own iconic Mini Cooper car and is auctioning it off for charity.
Today Paul announced Nordoff Robbins and War Child are to be the two beneficiaries of the exclusive charity auction.
Paul says: “I’ve always loved and driven Minis so when Mini asked me to be their ambassador last year, it felt a natural thing to do. I was given the opportunity to design my own Mini Cooper and the colours on the car were inspired by a shirt I designed for Ben Sherman that I loved a few years back.
“Now that the car has been manufactured, I thought it would be good to give it to two charities that I support to help them raise some much needed funds. War Child is an amazing charity which works tirelessly to provide protection for kids who live in some of the world’s most dangerous places – Iraq, Afghanistan, Uganda and DRC.
“Nordoff Robbins is the charity that really uses music to trasnform the livesof kids and adults who are ill or disabled, helping them to engage and communicate with others. They’re endlessly fundraising to help and support these vulnerable people.”
The auction is open from today until December 11 at www.paulwellerminiauction.com. Get your cash out kids – it’s for charity!
