Charity open day activities and guests

We’ve pretty much finalised everything that’s going on during the Charity Open Day on the 3rd, so we thought it would be good to publish a full list so that people can see what there is to do on the day. Don’t take this as 100% complete though – Duncan is still throwing ideas around like they’re going out of fashion!

Activities

  • Raffle (see our other post for the prize list)
  • Tombola
  • ‘Make me an offer’ stand – lots of good stuff on offer, and a chance to practise your haggling!
  • Name the teddy
  • Guess the number of packing air pockets in the van (they’re better than balloons)
  • Radio-controlled Land Rover racing
  • Name the part / odd part out (amateur and pro versions)
  • Darts challenge (a score of over 60 with 3 darts wins a prize)
  • Many cakes
  • Hot & Cold drinks
  • Hog roast & hamburgers

Special Guests

  • Bearmach
  • Britpart
  • Sealey Tools
  • Hangar 53 Custom Motor WorksMarshall Land Rover
  • Mansfield 4×4
  • Several of Duncan’s toys

Remember, anything you spend on the day is being donated to Parkinson’s UK – whether you’re buying raffle tickets, cake, or coffee every penny is going to a good cause.

Charity eBay auction – 110 Station Wagon roof rack (BA3861)

Bearmach have very generously donated a brand-new Defender 110 station wagon roof rack for our charity open day. We’ve used our other donated items for the tombola and raffle, but this fantastic part is a very specific fitment, so we decided to list it on eBay instead. As with the rest of the open day, the full amount taken for the roof rack will be donated to Parkinson’s UK.

Full details for the roof rack can be found on the auction listing, or on our product page.

20″ LAND ROVER “CORDONZA” BOY’S MOUNTAIN BIKE

BA4820

Land Rover no longer produce kids’ bikes, so this could be your last chance to grab one! A lot of ‘brand’ bikes are based on a cheap frame and built with unbranded components, making them a bit of a gamble. This isn’t the case with the Land Rover bikes; they’ve got solid frames and proper, branded components (brakes and gears).

The Cordonza features:

  • Lightweight 7005 Aluminium frame
  • Suntour M2025 front suspension forks
  • Shimano Tourney 6-speed gears
  • SRAM MRX gripshift
  • Tektro alloy V-brakes & levers
  • Alloy rims with Innova 20″ x 2.1″ tyres
  • Front mudguard

For the full specification of this great kids’ bike, see the full listing on our site.

Retail value: £230.69 +VAT!
