A convoy of Mini Cooper vehicles recently paid a visit to the Imperial War Museum in a bid to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Research , it has been stated.
The Cambridge News reports that, in scenes reminiscent of the film The Italian Job, the vehicles arrived at the Duxford airstrip to take part in a rally after making the 55-mile journey from Braintree in Essex.
Mini Club UK organised the race and stated that it had been turned into a charity event after it was discovered that the mother of one of the group’s members had been aided by the cancer charity after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.
According to the publication, club secretary Chris Cooper said: "The club has been going for a year and thought it would be good to arrange a social outing.
"When we heard how Macmillan had helped the family of one of our members, we decided to turn it into a fundraiser."
Another upcoming event for Mini Cooper fans is Mini United, which is a three-day event taking place at Silverstone from May 22nd.
Paul Weller is headlining the event, while there is also to be an appearance from Calvin Harris.
