PVL are proud to have supplied the livery for a unique British police car, in America, for a charity event. A BMW 3 Series made its appearance at the New York Half Marathon in Central Park in aid of a London based charity called JACK PACK.
JACK PACK is a charity that supports research into treatments for Neuroblastoma, a type of cancer that is most common in children. Each year, Babcock International and PVL work together to provide a British police car, complete with blue lights and livery stickers to support the cause.
Tom Stevenson, who assists with the fundraising for JACK PACK and took part in the half marathon said “It is really overwhelming to see so many people who give their time and generosity to such a great charity, and it’s great to be part of it.
“When the car arrives outside the hotel on the morning of the Central park run even the Met police officers are astonished by the site of it on Manhattan streets. The whole street comes to a standstill as the car pulls into its reserved space outside the hotel. It’s such an iconic piece of Britishness.”
The BMW 3 series, pictured, is a battenburg kit to match the Met Police specification in Reflexite VC612 high visibility material. The vehicle led the 103 police offers through Central Park, New York. To find out more about the JACK PACK charity please visit: https://j-a-c-k.org/
