When Wakefield-based entrepreneur James Saperia was looking for a special way to mark the tenth anniversary of his personalised number plate business, Simply Registrations, he found the perfect solution when he successfully bid to win a trip to the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Manufacturing Plant in Goodwood, West Sussex, in a Bespoke Pink Rolls-Royce, with the number plate FAB 1.
James’s day out was one of a selection ‘money can’t buy’ auction prizes offered by Breast Cancer Care as part of the charity’s FAB 1 Million campaign, run with the backing and support of DJ and television presenter Chris Evans and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, with the aim of raising £1m for the charity over a twelve month period.
James has always been fascinated by private number plates. He began buying and selling a few individual registrations with the aim of making enough money to get a deposit together to buy his first house. Ten years later the business is now well established and James prides himself in dealing personally with customers (many of whom come back on a regular basis).
James said: “I was delighted to support the charity as my Mum lost her mum to breast cancer when she was just 29 years old. Also, another close relative was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple of years ago.”
He added: “Having the opportunity to be chauffeur driven in the FAB1 Million Rolls-Royce Ghost, with such an eye-catching number plate was a fabulous experience, along with a private tour of the manufacturing plant and lunch with one of their designers. The icing on the cake was having the opportunity to test drive Wraith, the most powerful motor car Rolls-Royce has ever built.”
