MG RAISES OVER £2,500 FOR MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT

MG is delighted to announce that following a highly successful Macmillan Coffee Morning held at the factory, visitors to the iconic Longbridge site have now helped to raise over £2,500 for Macmillan Cancer Support in 2014. 

Every week MG opens the doors to its Birmingham site and allows members of the public to visit the home of the MG brand and the SMTC UK centre for design, engineering and assembly.  There is also an on-site dealership displaying the full range of current models and a small museum featuring some iconic models from both MG and previous brands built at the Longbridge site.  The tour is free, however visitors are asked to make a donation, the proceeds of which are then split between MGs chosen charities. For 2014 MG is supporting Macmillan Cancer Support and Acorns Children’s Hospice in Birmingham.

Visitors include various MG car clubs from around the country, student groups from the UK and abroad, private clubs and owners of current and historic MG products. The tour has become a ‘must’ for all MG enthusiasts, with hundreds attending every year. Tours last for approximately two hours and spaces can be booked online at www.mg.co.uk/factory-tours.

MG Motor UK HR Manager, Louise Carter handed over the latest donation to Emily Morgan, Fundraising Manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, following the factory’s Coffee Morning event where over 100 people attended, raising over £500 on the day.  Louise said “We are delighted that visitors to the site enjoy their tours and want to make a donation to charity as part of the process, enabling us to help such a great cause as Macmillan Cancer Support.”
