Offbeat / Comments

This is how you spread the holiday spirit.

Christmas is just around the corner and to celebrate Mini is touring an electric Cooper SE wrapped in 2,000 Christmas lights around the UK for five weeks. As well as helping people get into the festive spirit, the five-week tour will raise money for the MS Trust, Duchenne UK, and Alzheimer's Society charities.

After making its first public appearance at The Lexicon Bracknell in Berkshire, UK, on November 25, the Christmas-themed Mini Cooper SE will be driven to locations around the UK by its project creator Nicholas 'Nico' Martin. The project started over three years ago when Nico hand-wrapped his Mini in copious amounts of Christmas lights and displayed it in his local town in Bracknell, UK.

When the traditional Christmas tree light-on events were canceled last year due to the pandemic, Nico used his festive Mini to spread some Christmas cheer around his local town while also raising awareness and over £5000 ($6,661) for the MS Trust and Duchenne UK charities.

With the help of Mini UK, Festive Lights and Italian smart lighting company Twinkly, Nico's festive Mini is brighter than ever, which will hopefully enable him to raise even more money for charities this year.

"I'm so pleased to be back with the Festive Mini charity tour. I just knew last year I had an opportunity to cheer people up and also to raise funds for the MS Trust and Duchenne UK, said Both charities mean a lot to me - unfortunately my mother was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis six years ago, and in 2019 I was asked to take the Festive MINI to surprise an incredible young boy, Marcus Rooks, who was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy," said Nico.


"When I saw his face light up with so much joy and excitement, I realized that I had created something truly special. Ever since meeting him and learning about his condition, I've wanted to support him in any way I can."
