Time 9:56 am, May 12, 2014

IMG_8196A CAR donated to BCA Blackbushe will go under the hammer today with all the proceeds going to Help for Heroes.

BCA will waver all fees on the one-lady owner, 1988 VW Golf 1.8 GTI Convertible in order to raise as much money as possible.

The ‘F’ plate car is currently on display in the concourse at BCA Blackbushe. It is finished in metallic blue, with a grey cloth interior and has covered 89,000 miles since being registered in November 1988. It has an MOT until April 2015.

The sale includes the original VW branded shopping bag and matching baseball caps that came with the car when it was sold new.

The car will be sold around 12 noon at BCA Blackbushe.
