raised of £10,000 target by 138 supporters

    Weʼve raised £2,055 to Help fund the restoration or replacement of Bill's 1965 MG magnette BMC farina saloon. The car was stolen and torched by thieves.

    Funded on Saturday, 23rd June 2018

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    As a classic car owner myself, I know first hand just how much care, attention, time, effort and money that goes in to ownership of a classic car. This appeal is to raise funds for the restoration or replacement of a classic 1965 MG magnette. The owner has had his 1965 MG magnette for over 40 years, and had kept it it top condition. Not just as a classic, but as an everyday vehicle and was a regular site on the Oxfordshire roads.
    On February 20th, his pride and joy was stolen from him. Following wide spread appeals for information on the missing car, it was sadly found days later having been torched.
    As a classic car owner myself, I know only too well just how much time care money and work goes in to ownership of a classic. They truly become a part of the family.
    No amount of money can honestly replace the irreplaceable, but it can help towards the cost of repairing or buying another classic, or even just to give Bill a holiday following on from this horrible experience.
    Bill has sadly seen the cruelty of others first hand, let's show him the kindness of others and give towards making this gent's life better.

    Thank you

      Thanks to everyone for sharing, supporting and donating. So far £1600 and counting! When I began this, I didn't know if I would be giving Bill the grand total of £30 or more. Absolutely wonderful support. And thanks for all of your encouraging messages and comments.

      So sad to read about this. We live in Charlton Heights and have seen this car almost every day for years. Why would anyone destroy it? Good luck. We would love to see it restored.
