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
