This weekend sees the opening of a new MG Sales Centre at MG Motor UK‘s Longbridge plant alongside an attempt at Birmingham’s biggest ever Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

The MG Sales Centre opening on Friday, September 30 will coincide with the final stages of ‘The Great British Charity Test Drive.’ This has seen fleets of the latest MG cars touring the country in an initiative to raise cash and support Macmillan Cancer Support and Help for Heroes.

Organisers are hoping that the coffee morning (for invited guests only) to be held at the opening will be one of the biggest Macmillan coffee mornings ever held and the biggest ever held in the city of Birmingham.

Following the coffee morning, employees and their families will take part in fun packed afternoon of activities, including face painting, children’s entertainment, bouncy castles and there will even be a miniature farm where children will be able to stroke a variety of small animals.

There will be a chance for employees to try their hand at cake baking and their efforts will be sold off to raise further funds for the Macmillan charity.

The public are invited to join in as the family fun continues throughout the weekend: the new MG Sales Centre will be open to the public and there will be opportunities to test drive both the MG6 GT fastback and the MG6 Magnette sports saloon.

Clint Cordle, MG Motor UK’s Marketing Manager, said: “We’re planning a fun, family event to mark what is an important development in the new MG story.

“The brand is about fun and this will be a great way to celebrate. But we’re also hoping the celebrations will be well supported so that we can give even more support to Macmillan, which is such a worthy charity.

“We’ve ordered in plenty of coffee in what could be the biggest coffee morning ever held in Birmingham.”
