Bijouled in Harrogate raffle retro VW Beetle for brain tumour research

Bijouled on Parliament Street in Harrogate has a raffle supporting brain tumour research, the PPR Foundation. The shop is owned by husband and wife, Neville and Georgina Collins.

A few months ago Neville was diagnosed as having a brain tumour and they decided that they wanted to support brain tumour research.

Neville is currently having his condition monitored.

We were taking part in the Christmas Shop Window competition and thought we would combine that with fundraising.

Our window display has the theme “Driving Home for Christmas”. It’s a display that we have put a lot of time into. We had a photographer photograph Parliament Street and we had the images printed and turned into the backdrops.

We found a fully working kids beetle and have made that the centre-piece of the window. It needed to be painted and we had a roof put on it for the window, but it has lights, a horn and everything.



Raffle tickets can be bought from the shop and cost £3, or you can get them online through their Just Giving Page
