Retired businessman Stuart, from Retford, has been raising money for the North Anston facility for the last five years through his fleet of nine luxury Jags.

The 78-year-old covers some of his racing cars with sponsored, coloured vinyl stickers in return for a donation to the charity and he and his team of 25 volunteers also take the eye-catching liveried vehicles to events across the country, such as classic car shows, country fairs and restaurant openings.

Last October he hit his £300,000 milestone in his support for the hospice – and wants to bring in £50,000 more in 2024.

“We're hoping this year will be very fruitful for Bluebell Wood,” he said. “Eighty-five per cent of the hospice's income comes from fundraising.”
