Paul Auctions Mini Cooper Design For Charity - BID NOW!

Paul Auctions Mini Cooper Design For Charity - BID NOW! Paul has teamed up with Mini to create a unique, striking car design, and you can bid for it at his online auction right now!  

All proceeds from the sale of Paul's exclusive, one-of-a-kind Mini Cooper will go to two charities very close to Paul's heart - War Child and Nordoff Robbins.

You can place your bids for the very special motor at paulwellerminiauction.com from today until the 11th December.

Paul said of the design: "I've always loved and driven Minis so when Mini asked me to be their ambassador last year, it felt a natural thing to do.  I was given the opportunity to design my own Mini Cooper and the colours on the car were inspired by a shirt I designed for Ben Sherman that I loved a few years back.

"Now that the car has been manufactured, I thought it would be good to give it to two charities that I support to help them raise some much needed funds. War Child is an amazing charity which works tirelessly to provide protection for kids who live in some of the world's most dangerous places - Iraq, Afghanistan, Uganda and DRC.

"Nordoff Robbins is the charity that really uses music to transform the lives of kids and adults who are ill or disabled, helping them to engage and communicate with others. They're endlessly fundraising to help and support these vulnerable people."

The Mini Cooper Paul has designed usually retails at £14,000 and has a 1.6 petrol engine and goes from 0-62 mph in 9.1 seconds, with a top speed of 127 mph. Nice.

A massive thank you to everyone taking part in the auction!
