Perrys prepares for Red Nose Day events

A Kia Venga filled with red noses, a professional football team taking part in a penalty shoot out with the public and a sponsored bike ride are just some of the events across Perrys dealerships to raise money for 2011 Comic Relief.

At Perrys Preston, a Kia Venga compact MPV will be demonstrating its practicality when it is filled with red noses as part of a fun competition.

The car will be parked outside Boots in Preston on 19 February and Sainsburys on 12 March. On 16 March, it will be located outside the Lancashire Evening Post to complete the tour.

People will be asked to guess the amount of noses inside the Kia Venga with lots of great prizes on offer for the nearest guesses.

The Preston dealership will also host a red nose cake sale on 25 February and a charity car wash on 26 February – the ideal way to give your car a clean and help out a good cause.

Staff at Preston are getting into the spirit by wearing something red on 18 March, while a team of cyclists consisting of Peter Ogden, Mark Miller, Phil Wareing, Carl Molloy and Martin Townson will cycle from Perrys Kia Burnley to Perrys Kia Preston to raise money for the event.

Over the Pennines, Perrys Rotherham will be host to Rotherham United FC as part of their sponsorship of the Yorkshire team.

The players and manager will be at the dealership on the day to take part in a penalty shoot out with anybody willing to donate.

Other attractions include cake stalls, a tombola and car valets for a small donation.
The events will be taking place throughout February and March in the build up to Red Nose Day.
