Limited edition Jaguars boost Poppy Appeal funds

25 November 2010

Limitied edition Jaguar XFRsStratstone Jaguar has pledged to donate up to £5,000 to The Royal British Legion, raised through the sale of its limited edition Jaguar XFRs.

The announcement was made in the week that Stratstone dealerships across the UK commenced the first customer deliveries of the strictly limited exclusive models.

Only 50 of the Jaguar Stratstone Le Mans Limited Edition will ever be built and Stratstone dealerships across the UK are already reporting exceptionally strong demand for the special edition.

A keen corporate supporter of the Legion and its work, Stratstone has pledged to donate £100 for every special edition XFR model sold nationwide to support the 2010 Poppy Appeal.  

Given the unprecedented levels of interest in the XFR, Stratstone expects to achieve its £5,000 fundraising target within the next couple of weeks.

Stratstone's managing director, James Brearley, said: "The Limited Edition is the definitive sporting saloon and no detail has been spared."

"Already deemed a future classic, demand for this iconic model is exceptionally high which is great news for this year's Poppy Appeal, a very worthy cause given the almost daily news of the sacrifices our Service men and women are making in Afghanistan."

The Legion's Director of National Events and Fundraising Russell Thompson OBE said: "This is an exceptionally generous donation by Stratstone. In these austere times, every penny raised is appreciated and will help us continue our vitally important work."

"It is a beautiful car, but sadly," Mr Thompson added, "I am not sure I can afford one."

In addition to supporting the Legion's Poppy Appeal, purchasers of the XFR Stratstone Le Mans Limited Edition will also have the opportunity to join over 200 like-minded Stratstone customers for the 79th annual Le Mans 24 hour race in June 2011.
