Santa’s sleigh may be the most famous red vehicle delivering presents at Christmas, but today Ferrari cars were dashing through town with some extra special gifts in tow.
Surprising the children at the Royal Brompton Hospital, in South Kensington, a brand new F8 Spider, arrived last week delivering a Christmas tree and a selection of Ferrari teddy bears and colouring sets, on behalf of nearby H.R. Owen and Ferrari North Europe. Understanding that whilst this year has been difficult for all, these children have faced their own personal challenges and the visit from H.R. Owen hoped to bring smiles to faces and festive joy to the local community.
The striking Christmas tree was unpacked from the Ferrari F8 Spider and delivered, with a box of beautiful red, green and white decorations ready for the children and staff at the hospital to decorate and enjoy together. Nodding to the Italian heritage of the Ferrari brand with a red, green and white theme, the trees will set the festive scene for everyone over the Christmas period.
James Champion, Ferrari Brand Director at H.R. Owen said: “It is our pleasure to support this promise to charity. We place great importance and value in giving something back to the community around our London dealership location. It is extra special for the children to have their gifts delivered in a Ferrari, and H.R. Owen is synonymous with the Ferrari sales and servicing in this region. We were always going to step in and support a worthwhile cause at this festive time of year.”
Francesco Balli, Regional Manager, Ferrari North Europe said, “One of the best things about Ferrari is the excitement it brings to adults and children alike; there is a very special feeling when you see and hear our beautiful cars up close. We hope that by bringing a Ferrari experience to the children we can help create a moment of joy, providing respite from what has been an incredibly difficult year. The toys and trees are a gift from us to show our appreciation for these young people and all of those who care for them, and we hope our visit will be a day to remember.”
