Batman, Batgirl and the Easter Bunny also popped along to meet visitors at the new high tech crash repair facility which relocated to Commercial Way on Sleaford Enterprise Park in February.

Folks travelled from across the county and beyond all hoping to win the chance to ride through Sleaford in their chosen star car. Lucky raffle winners were Alex Schofield (9) of Cranwell in Herbie; Daniel Miles (7) of Sleaford in the Batmobile and Shane Ellis (24) of Sleaford in KITT.

Visitors were also able to take guided tours of the bodyshop with demonstrations showing how new technology offers safe and fast repair techniques reducing cost and saving waste. Guests were astounded by the speed and quality of the company’s new £50,000 paint drying equipment leaving paint completely dry in just eight minutes.

Other fundraising exhibits including guess the number of balloons in the courtesy car to win £50 cash, and the chance to win Porsche and LandRover experience days contributed towards raising around £1,500 for the NSPCC and Joel’s Quest.

Event co-ordinator Emma Walsh said: “We had a fantastic turnout and the weather held for us. We have raised in the region of £1,500 but still have some corporate donations coming through from representatives of UK insurers and fleet management companies who came to our official corporate opening on Wednesday [April 4].”
