With additional LEDs this time, the project shines brighter than before.
With the goal of raising money for two charities near and dear to Nicholas “Nico” Martin, the Festive Mini is supported by Mini UK and its Oxford Plant. The Mini Electric (or Mini Cooper SE in the US) this year is covered in 3,000 app-controlled twinkly LEDs that can produce custom animations, as opposed to the Mini Electric from last year. These contain messages and light patterns, as well as musically coordinated beats.
Martin will be visiting as many streets as he can in his city to promote holiday cheer. Each individual bulb is available to sponsor for just £2, or roughly $2.5 The Lexicon Bracknell will turn on The Festive Mini formally on November 25, 2022.
This year, two of Martin’s favourite charities—the MS Trust and Duchenne UK—will get funding.
The MS Trust was crucial in helping Martin’s mother, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis seven years ago, comprehend her disease and cope, according to Martin.
“Back in 2019, I was invited to bring the Festive Mini to surprise Marcus Rooks, a remarkable young man who had been diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a hereditary disorder that results in muscle degeneration. It was amazing to see his face light up, serving as a reminder that the Festive Mini is truly unique and cheers so many people each year “Martin remembered.
