TrustFord is bringing back its penny auction for the second year in a row and this time singer and TV presenter, Peter Andre is behind the wheel.
The event, which raises vital funds for Cancer Research UK’s Peter Andre Fund, will take place on May 22 and will give people the chance to pick up the deal of a lifetime on a car, with bids starting at an unbelievably low 1p.
The penny auction will take place on eBay and there will be four cars up for grabs, ranging from Ford Fiestas to Ford Focuses; all with the amazingly low starting price of a penny. Anyone looking for something truly unique will be in luck as the auction will feature one car with paintwork hand-designed by Cancer Research UK supporter Peter Andre.
Peter took a trip to the TrustFord Edgware dealership in April to show off his design skills and the expertly-decorated car is sure to start a bidding war with fans keen to get their hands on an original Andre design.
Andre said: “Designing the car for the penny auction was so much fun. I got everybody involved, including my brother Mike and road manager Carl, and I have to say we were pretty pleased with the results! I’m hoping people will dig deep to bid on this car, not only will you drive away in something truly unique but it will raise vital funds for the Peter Andre Fund which supports Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work.”
Marketing and E-commerce director at TrustFord Celia Pronto said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Peter Andre and Cancer Research UK and want to beat last year’s total of £15,000, so anyone thinking about buying a car should definitely take a look at our eBay auction, as this is a great opportunity to drive away with a bargain and raise money for a fantastic cause in the process.”
