A MOBILE Rotherham fundraiser whose “tagged” Jag proved a massive charity money-spinner says his second four-wheeled sponsorship magnet is proving just as popular.

Car show visitors, businesses and individual donors flocked to add their names to the first colourful car Stuart Dixon took on the road, helping him clock up £80,000 in donations for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

After covering one car with stickers signed by supporters, the retired company director, who owns seven Jags, is now out tour again with another impressive model.

“Last year’s car ended up raising over £80,000,” he said.

“This year’s car started out towards the end of February and it has raised over £21,000 already.”

Alternatively, he is happy to visit businesses to allow their staff to “tag” and donate en masse.
