Friday 13th March 2009 is Comic Relief’s biennial Red Nose Day. The comedy-oriented event always attracts the eccentric and the bizarre, and we are sure that this year will be no exception – at least, the early signs are promising…
Michael Brown is chauffeur to Dragons’ Den panellist Theo Paphitis. Somehow, Michael persuaded Theo to allow him to use his car for a charity stunt – and not just any car. Michael and his two companions, Ray Winter and Rob Mills, pulled Theo’s Maybach for a mile along the Mercedes-Benz World test track in Weybridge, Surrey.
Regtransfers.co.uk was invited along to witness Michael’s effort on Saturday 14th February.
Just in case having one’s spectacularly expensive luxury car towed along a test track by three men dressed as nuns (Yes, nuns… Sorry, hadn’t we mentioned the nuns?) wasn’t enough to make any Maybach owner squirm in discomfort, Sisters Michael, Ray and Rob decorated Theo’s vehicle with Red Nose Day ‘splats’. They assured Theo that the splats could be removed easily after the event and that they would leave no trace on the Maybach. Last we heard, Michael was alive and well, and still employed, so we suppose the car must have emerged unscathed from its adventure.
Regtransfers.co.uk extends our thanks to Michael for inviting us along, and extend our congratulations to him, to Ray and Rob, and driver Tracey Purkiss on completion of their hard work in a good cause.
If you would like to sponsor Michael and the nuns after the event, there is plenty of time to do so. Please visitwww.myrednoseday.com/nunsonthepullmichael
Regtransfers.co.uk sponsored the nuns’ car-pulling event this year. Last year we sponsored Theo Paphitis when he completed a 3k run to raise money for the Sport Relief charity. Theo’s Ryman stationery company is a Red Nose Day sponsor this year.
