A good customer of ours, Christopher Gavin, is driving his Porsche 964 Targa 2500 to the Alps and back to raise money for charity.
Christopher is supporting Alie Tilley, an old friend and colleague, who sadly succumbed last year from Motor Neurone Disease (MND). Alie set up All About Alie in February 2016, three months before she died. Her mission was to do two main things:
1. Raise awareness of MND and what people can do to help.
2. Get action to fight against MND by raising money to fund stem cell research being conducted by Professor Talbot (Alie’s consultant).
at the University of Oxford and to help those living with MND by donating to the MND Association.
All About Alie’s goal was originally to raise £52,000 to fund one year of this ground-breaking stem cell research. This was successfully achieved and the charity is raising another £52,000 to fund a second year of this important research.
The Porsche has been given a livery by John Rampton at Vroom Photo. It can be seen on regular outings at the Porsche meet at The Fairmile, Cobham, Surrey on the third Wednesday of each month until September and at the Ace Café on the last Monday of every month.
The car is also sponsored by video production company, Odd Man Out Ltd. A donation bucket will be present or you can donate at Christopher’s Virgin Money Giving page.
Christopher says: “I am determined that this trip helps to publicise and raise money for All About Alie. A great charity in memory of a great person.”
