Aston Martin Wilmslow Charity Event a Success!

15th Feb 2019

Stratstone Aston Martin Wilmslow recently hosted a launch event for a James Bond themed charity cycling tour that saw three Gold medal winners in attendance alongside an iconic guest.

Gold Medalists Unite

The Seashell Trust will be running the James Bond-themed 'Cycle Switzerland' tour between Geneva and Zurich this coming September in an effort to raise funds for future projects that primarily focus on supporting children and young adults with complex learning disabilities from across the UK.

Joining the event were Paralympian Gold medalists Lora and Neil Fachie, who are ambassadors for the Trust. Alongside them was Philip Hindes, an Olympian who won Gold in the men's sprint during London 2012. They spoke extensively about how the charity builds the perfect foundations for those with disabilities looking to get into professional sports and how they offer incredible levels of support.

A Special Guest

An excellent evening's entertainment was had by over 70 guests, who enjoyed some cold refreshments, mingling and the soundtracks from the James Bond films (naturally). Among the guests were some incredible Aston Martin models, including a DBS Superleggera and a fully spec'd V8 Vantage that boasted the stunning Carbon Pack.

However, one very special guest gained the majority of the attention from the guests. A 1964 Aston Martin DB5 finished in 'Silver Birch' was among the crowd, with the owner very kindly allowing guests to have their photo professionally taken with the car that was driven by Daniel Craig in the 2015 James Bond film, 'Spectre'.

Nik Boxall, Head of Business at Aston Martin Wilmslow, commented: “The Seashell Trust is an immensely special charity who do some fantastic work with those who need it most. It's a genuine privilege to be have been able to host an event such as this one that will provide the platform for the tour to go on and become a success. We wish the best of luck to everyone participating.”
