THE FESTIVE MINI.
SPREADING BIG LOVE THIS CHRISTMAS.
The sparkliest time of the year just got sparklier. This Christmas, Nico Martin will once again be touring the UK in his dazzling MINI Electric – now officially known as the Festive MINI – which is covered in no less than 3,000 LED lights!
As well as spreading plenty of positivity and Christmas cheer around the country, he’ll be raising money for two charities close to his heart. Now that’s Big Love.
‘TIS THE SEASON TO SPARKLE.
The bright idea came about in 2019, when Bracknell-based Nico spent two weeks wrapping his MINI Electric in fairy lights for a bit of festive fun. That’s until he took it to show 11-year-old Marcus, whose Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy makes it difficult to get out and see the local Christmas lights. When the MINI lit up, so did Marcus’ face – and Nico realised his car had the power to make even more people smile.
Every Christmas since, he’s been driving his one-of-a-kind car around the country to show off its fabulously festive glow-up and spread some MINI magic. And as the lights are app-controlled, Nico can mix up their colours and patterns at the touch of a button. They can even be synced to music so they’ll light up to the rhythm of your favourite festive tunes!
BIG LIGHTS. BIG LOVE.
By taking his Festive MINI back on tour, Nico aims to raise as much money as possible for two amazing charities: The MS Trust and Duchenne UK. If you’re able to contribute, you can sponsor a light for as little as £2, with every penny going to these wonderful causes. Hit the link below for more info.
And if you want to experience the magic of the Festive MINI first-hand, you can find the full tour schedule below, too. Let’s spread some Big Love this Christmas.
