More Mini Surprises

24th August 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wow what an amazing two weeks!   Over the last fortnight I’ve been touring all over West Norfolk, Wisbech & Fakenham giving out Mini Surprises with Listers Mini in King’s Lynn in my fab Mini Countryman.  Along with staff from Mini we visited Hunstanton and paid for Swimming at the Oasis, chocolate at the factory in Fakenham, parking at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, for food at Nando’s, KFC & McDonalds, then there was Coffee’s at Costa, the arcade machines, Ice creams, fish n Chips, peoples fuel in Wisbech and so much more!  Each and every one was an amazing Mini Surprise, there’s not enough good things in the world so we tried to put some smiles back in to it by doing these good deeds.

How would you react if a complete stranger approached and paid for you?  I’m pleased to say as you may expect everyone once they’d worked out who I was and what was going were overjoyed, even though in some cases it was just a couple of a quid, having something paid for like your parking at the hospital because you’re visiting your Mum who has falling and broke her hip meant the world.  I’d also like to mention the amazing staff who refused my money for parking to make sure patients were able to benefit too. I met an amazing family on the prom in Hunstanton who it turns out were at the seaside celebrating their first wedding anniversary, on arrival back at KLFM I had a lovely email to say how their special day had been made more amazing by Listers Mini and KLFM’s generosity.

Whilst in Wisbech I bumped into a lovely young lady who had literally just bought her Mini from the showroom, she’d done no more than 2 miles and as you’d imagine was over the moon to have her first tank of petrol for free.

I even got my own Mini Surprise in Fakenham thanks to Phoebe and David who spotted me on the Market Place and treated me to a nice cold drink which was enjoyed in the sun whilst people watching and deciding where to go with our money.

As you know I’m always out n about doing crazy things for KL.FM but this is one the things I’ll never forget, to be able to give away hundreds and hundreds of pounds to others ‘just because’ was truly an amazing experience.  I’ve loved people’s reactions, their stories and I’ve loved doing something so simple that has made such a big difference to people’s day.  Also I’ve got to be honest I’ve really loved driving around in the shiny new Mini Countryman, its looked so great parked on my drive at home!

You can see all off our Mini Surprises and maybe spot someone you know on KLFM’s Facebook page and via my blog at KLFM 96.7.co.uk

It’s only been about six weeks since it happened last time but this morning we gave away another £1000!  Mark Feder from King’s Lynn was as cool as a cucumber as he breezed through the 10 questions on the KL.FM £1000 Minute with about 10 seconds of the 60 to spare!

Here are his questions, how would you have done?

 

Which sign of the zodiac is represented by the ‘water-bearer’?

On which David Bowie album was the track ‘Life on Mars?’ on?

In which US TV series did Kiefer Sutherland play the character of Jack Bauer?

Which band consists of three brothers and a cousin?

Which has more bones; a human hand or a human foot?

In which year did Steve Jobs introduce the first Apple iPhone to the public?

Which European capital city was built on 14 islands?

Steven Spielberg was one of the co-founders of which movie studio?

What is Elton John's middle name?

Now hear the answers and the moment he won the cash!
