A Retford man's novel approach to fundraising that involves Jaguars and stickers has now raised over £200,000 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

You may have seen a sticker covered Jaguar present at many of the events across Notts, including  recently the Christmas Markets, such as the one in Retford at the end of 2021. The Jaguar is owned by Stuart Dixon, who has covered two of his prized fleet of Jaguars with stickers bearing the names of people and businesses.

Those who want their name featured on one of his cars are asked to pay for the privilege, with all proceeds going to Bluebell Wood. The retired businessman, affectionately known as Jaguar Man, puts his success and fundraising feats down to single-minded determination.

“For the past 30 years I’ve raised money for charities,” he said.

“Once I’d retired my son said that I should focus on one charity when it comes to the Jaguars.

“I looked at all the charities I’d supported over the years, who are all brilliant and I still support in other ways, but it had to be Bluebell Wood.

“It’s an amazing local charity which makes such a huge difference to so many local families.”

Jason Gossop, Regional Fundraiser for Bluebell Wood, said: “Stuart’s energy, commitment and determination is absolutely phenomenal and we’re incredibly grateful for his ongoing support.

“The astonishing sum he has raised for Bluebell Wood is nothing short of remarkable and the best part is - every penny helps us to be there for children and families who sadly don’t know how long they'll have together.

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to Stuart, his volunteer helpers and all those who have kindly donated to have their name proudly displayed on one of his Jaguars.”
