Micheldever/Southam Praises Tyre Suppliers’ Generosity
Micheldever Wholesale director Alan Baldwin praised the generosity of top tyre manufacturers for the “exceptional” prizes they donated for a charity auction in aid of Motor Neurone Disease Research on 29 January. Held at the world famous Butchers Arms Restaurant, the auction was in aid of a £1 million fund raising attempt by Simon Adams, a customer of Southam Tyres, who was sadly diagnosed with the terminal illness just before Christmas. Over £30,000 pounds was raised on the evening with Guests reportedly bidding into the thousands for prizes like a framed Man Utd shirt signed by all of last season’s Premiership winning side, Ferrari driving days, Goodwood festival of Speed tickets, British touring cars, sets of tyres, and many more items including a Formula 1 factory visit. Alan Baldwin said it was an incredible night, and paid special thanks to Bridgestone, Continental, Kumho, Toyo, Goodyear Dunlop, Pirelli, Michelin, General Tire and Manchester United FC.
