Donating money to ‘Mini Teslas for Children’s hospitals/hospices’

We’ve partnered with The Christian Blandford Fund (Registered Charity number – 1139614) to ensure all funds raised via this scheme go solely towards buying the toy Tesla cars, nobody from the charity or Tesla Owners UK takes a salary or claims expenses, we simply buy the cars at a better than trade rate, transport them across the UK and hand deliver them to our selected hospices, hospitals and special schools.

More information about this campaign:

In 2018, Tesla Owners UK members were donating their toy cars (won via the referral scheme) to their local children’s hospitals then Tesla Owners UK president Will Fealey asked Elon Musk for some help in buying some in bulk, not only did Elon then go on to match Will’s donation but also got RadioFlyer (the manufacturers) to give us a discounted rate!

At the time we then partnered with The Christian Blandford Fund (Registered Charity number – 1139614) to ensure the donations are eligible for gift aid. William Fealey (Group President) has personally become a trustee for the charity and we have signed paperwork from the Trustees stating that all funds donated via Tesla Owners UK (including all gift aid claimed) will go to directly fund the purchase & distribution of the mini Teslas. The founder of the charity is also a Tesla owner in our group and they’ve already donated several cars to hospitals.

As of 30th May 2019 we’ve donated over 160 cars across the UK!

For every full donation (£664), we’ve currently got matched funding from Elon, RadioFlyer & Will to get additional cars, which effectively makes it buy 1 get 1 free.

1 car = a £664 donation + 1 extra via matched funding

2 cars = a £1328 donation + 2 extra via matched funding

3 cars = a £1,992 donation + 3 extra via matched funding

Donating at events:

Fully Charged Live we will be collecting cash, contactless card payments and bank transfers. Our aim is to hit £3,000 donated.

Silverstone Classic 2019 – A £3,000 corporate donation has been given and we plan to raise further money during the weekend at our stand area.
