Mackie&#39s blind ambition

The prospect of an IFA strapped and blindfolded to a high-speed vehicle hurtling into the never-never may make some chortle but MR Financial Services director Andrew Mackie is doing just that to beat the blindfolded land speed world record – currently at 144.7mph – and raise money for charity British Blind Sport.

Mackie, more used to carousing in his Ford Mondeo around Preston, is asking for corporate sponsors who, for a small sum, could have their name emblazoned across the Formula 1 car, attend the day and participate in top motoring activities.

Gear up for more information by contacting Mackie on 01772 779 020 or andrewmackie@mrfinancial-services.co.uk.
