Let there be lights. A MINI Electric covered in 2,000 LED lights is touring the UK to spread festive cheer and raise vital funds for three great charities: MS Trust, Duchenne UK and Alzheimer’s Society.
Nico Martin is the colourful character behind it all. It all started in 2019 when Bracknell-based Nico wrapped his own MINI in fairy lights to surprise an 11-year-old boy suffering from Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Seeing the joy it brought to all, Nico and his MINI returned in 2020 to deliver some mid-pandemic positivity directly to people’s doorsteps.
To help take his bright idea even further, BMW Mini have given him a new MINI Electric for 2021.
