Tom's Smile

Miles of smiles

Tom is twelve and has two older brothers both of whom have severe learning disabilities.  Tom helps mum and dad care for them both which is hard work as they are quite demanding.  Initially Tom asked if he could go in a fast car - a Ferrari or the like - but when we told him he could take a friend he changed his mind and has asked if he can be picked up from school in a limo. 
 
Because brothers Nathan and Ashley take up so much of mum and dad's time and energy, Tom often finds that his needs come last. This wasn't the case on his 'smile' day!
 
The Silver limo from Sophisticars arrived in the school car park and Tom's whole class were green with envy when they looked out of the window. Karen and Sophisticars chauffeur Phil visited Tom's Class and explained why Tom had been chosen for a 'smile' and everyone clapped.  No one could have doubted who the limo was for as we had a massive banner reading 'LIMO FOR TOM HINDS' and a PA system announcing the fact!
 
Tom, best friend Liam and girlfriend Tara were whisked home in the limo to get changed then taken off for tea along with their mums Gill and Ann.  There was a slight detour on the way to the restaurant via an exclusive garage that is stocked with Ferraris, Aston Martins, Bentleys and many other very swish cars.  Tom was at a loss for words as he wandered round. He sat in a black Ferrari and vowed to work very hard at school so that one day maybe................ he could come back and buy one.
 

Everyone then enjoyed a really fabulous meal and the limo cruise home, there were many, many smiles. Tom was looking forward to going to school the next day to make everyone even more envious.  A well deserved treat.

 

Naomi's Smile

Miles of smiles

Naomi lives with her mum and dad both of whom suffer from ill health. Naomi who is fifteen runs the household and helps mum and dad as much as she can.  Sometimes when she needs a break Naomi stays with her gran and at times with her auntie.  She works really hard at school and hopes to be a journalist.

Naomi asked if we can get tickets for her to go and see the band Green Day who were on at the MEN.  All venues were sold out so we had got our work cut out but due to hard work and persistence we managed to get two tickets.

Naomi chose her friend Danielle to accompany her on the trip.  Both girls looked stunning when we went to pick them up and both girls were stunned when they saw the transport - the limo from Sophisticars.  The arrived at the venue like VIPS and had a really brilliant time watching their favourite band.

 

 

Rosie's Smile

Miles of smiles

Rosie is twelve and helps mum around the house and with her younger brother and sister.  Dad has a visual impairment and Rosie helps out doing practical stuff for him and mum suffers from regular bouts of ill health.  She's had a few problems herself and so has been nominated for a smile.

Rosie has asked if she can go to Blackpool Illuminations with some friends in a limo. 

To make it extra special we gave Rosie some spending money to buy an outfit to go on her special trip.  A limo ride needs new outfits!

It was just going dark when six very excited young people clambered into the silver limo supplied by Sophisticars.  They were served sparkling 'wine' and watched dvds as they drove to Blackpool.  The illuminations came second to shouting out of the windows at all the passers by.  It was great fun.  Everyone was tired when they got back home - tired but smiling - and we finished our special treat with a goody bag for Rosie and her special friends.

 

 

Jordan's Smile

Miles of smiles

Jordan is 14 and helps both mum and dad.  Mum, Sharon, has emphysema and is on oxygen 14 hours a day as well as inhalers and medication. She rarely leaves the house and when she does has to go in a wheelchair.    Dad, Joe,  also has health problems having had major back surgery when he had rods inserted.
 
Jordan helps with the shopping, washes up, vacuums and does the laundry so he well deserving of a smile.
 
His choice was to go to the zoo for a day.   Jordan, brother Anthony and sister, Louise all arrived is style in a limo supplied by Sophisticars, on arrival they were greeted by staff at Blackpool Zoo.  Jordan got very involved with the lemurs - helping feed them and playing with them and he also helped the lion keepers get their food ready.  They spent the whole day amongst the animals and arrived home in their limo with over 400 photographs of a very special day for a very deserving young man.

 

Terri's Smile

Miles of smiles

Terri-ann was nominated by her dad, Terry.  Terry told us that he suffers from many health problems - angina, epilepsy, diabetes, coronary heart disease and asthma.  This means they can't have a normal family life.
Terri-ann, he said, spends most of her time at home helping dad with his tasks and mum with cleaning.  She knows what to do in an emergency - which spray to use and how to work the lifeline button.  Terry said that he is very proud of her and if it wasn't for Terri-ann's support and care mum would not be able to have a break.
Terri-ann asked to go to Blackpool Pleasure Beach on her twelfth birthday.  Friend, Heather, mum and dad all joined her.  Terri-ann pretended to be very cool when the limo arrived from Sophisticars decorated with birthday balloons and banners.  Dad said;
'Excited is not a big enough word to cover it.  She was on a high especially when the driver opened the drink for her to enjoy on the trip and she saw the tv playing the music videos.'

The whole family had a wonderful day.  A birthday to remember.

Samantha's Smile!

Miles of smiles

Samantha and Katie are sisters who looked after their father for a long time (Katie's story is below).   Samantha asked for a family meal for her 'smile'.  She was celebrating her birthday so we decided that would be a perfect day to go.
 
The whole family looked fabulous but especially our birthday girl. With her beautiful blonde hair in curls and looking stunning in black, Sam opened the birthday bag of goodies we gave her before the Silver Stretched limousine from Sophisticars arrived.  The all piled in but not before we had taken loads of photos then off to the restaurant.
With family and friends all together Sam enjoyed a slap up meal and was thoroughly embarrassed when the birthday cake came out and we all sang to her.  The back home in the limo. It was a birthday to remember.


June 2009

Katie's Smile!

Miles of smiles

Katie's dad had been ill for a very long time and she had helped care for him.  Sadly he died just before Christmas and she misses him a lot.  She also helps look after her mum who has arthritis and spondalitis and struggles to get around.  Katie asked for a day at Blackpool Pleasure Beach with her family. 
Saturday was a glorious day but threatened to be spoiled as Katie had fallen off her bike the day before and landed on her knee leaving a massive hole.  (Or so Katie thought).  The knee was bandaged up and forgotten when Katie opened her special card and found £10 spending money.  EVERYTHING was forgotten when Katie saw her fantastic transport to the Pleasure Beach.  A black glittery limo from Sophisticars.  'Is it just for me?' she asked.  It was suggested that the rest of the family might like to join her rather than go on the bus.  Katie's smile said it all.  They had by all accounts a brilliant day at the Pleasure Beach and were all very tired when they got home.


Jack's Smile!

Miles of smiles

 

 

A day at Blackpool Pleasure Beach was the 'smile' that Jack from Leyland chose.  Jack helps look after his younger brother Liam who, amongst other things is registered blind and is unable to walk.  We called round first thing on Saturday morning to deliver the tickets, some cash for lunch and a little spending money for Jack and then waited for the transport.  The transport was, of course, a stretched limo from Sophisticars.  Jack was thrilled to bits and was very excited as he, Liam, mum and dad set off on their day out - first stop 'The BIG ONE'!!

Mum and dad said afterwards:      'Had a fantastic day.  The limo was amazing felt rich for the day.  Jack was really chuffed he said it was the best day of his life! Liam was fantastic all day we've never seen him smile so much. We can't thank you enough.  It was lovely to spoil Jack all day can't remember the last time we all laughed as we did as a family!  It was an experience none of us will forget! All of us thank you from the bottom of our hearts.We hope other families get a chance to experience a 'smile' for the day as they'll never forget it. A BIG THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US. Most of all from Jack the boy with the biggest smile out of everyone.'

Easter 2009

Stuart's Smile!

Miles of smiles

 

Stuart is a caring young carer from Lower Darwen.  He cares for his mum who is a wheelchair user and is disabled himself having to use crutches.  Older sister, Vikki, has recently left home to go to university so Stuart and his mum take care of each other now.

Stuart decided that he would like to share his 'smile' and chose a family meal somewhere where he could 'choose anything off the menu'.
 
It was a sunny evening on Easter Monday when the 'taxi' arrived to take the family - Stuart, mum, Vikki, her fiance, Phil and nan off on their journey.  They were all thrilled when a limo turned up at the front door and piled in enjoying drinks and tv.  It was a long journey through the Ribble Valley to the Parkers Arms in Newton winding through many country lanes - not the easiest thing in a thirty foot car!  But Phil from Sophisticars has had tougher challenges and everyone arrived safely.
 
AJ from the Parkers Arms was there to meet the party.  They soon settled down with drinks and menus. Everyone eat well and was suitably stuffed having enjoyed themselves thoroughly.   And just for the record Stuart had two puddings!  How brilliant!

Caitlin's Smile!

Caitlen's Smile

Miles of smiles

 

 



 

At Miles of Smiles Lancashire we recently received a phone call from Caitlin’s mum.

Caitlin, she told us, had lost her dad to cancer last year just two days after her twelfth birthday.  Since then, Caitlin has helped to raise almost £5000 for cancer research and the local hospice.  As mum said, not bad for a girl who has herself a  fair share of problems including a rare genetic disorder, autism, hearing impairment, asthma and learning difficulties.

For her thirteenth birthday Caitlin decided she would like a party not only for family and friends but it also had to include thirty five children who have suffered or are going through a trauma similar to hers. As Caitlin put it – she wanted ‘them to smile for a day’.

The party was organised – not an inexpensive event - and Caitlin still asked for nothing for herself.  However, one afternoon Caitlin saw a limo driving past and she said that one day she would like to ride ‘in one of those and it would be nice to go to the party in one’.

Could Miles of Smiles help with this, asked mum.  No problem we said.  In fact not only can we arrange a ride in a limo but we bought Caitlin an outfit for the special day too.

The limo was a surprise.  Caitlin had no idea she was to ride to the party in such style.  At least it was until Gran came into the living room where everyone was waiting and said; ‘The limo’s arrived.’ Best laid plans of mice and men and all that!  Hey ho.   Caitlin hurtled outside – nearly knocking chauffeur Phil from Sophisticars to the ground – where she saw her very own carriage.   A big, sparkly, special car for our VIP.   Caitlin, her friends and Gran all climbed in to the car where they watched tv and drank sparkly drinks on the journey to the party.  They felt like pop stars.  Caitlin felt wonderful. 

A special treat for a very special teenager.

Convoy of Happiness
2008





EVEN torrential downpours could not dampen the spirits when the Convoy of Happiness set off for Blackpool.
The trip for seriously ill children from across the north west took 160 children, parents and carers for the annual day of thrills by the seaside.
The fleet of 20 limousines was flanked by motorcycle outriders from Rising Moon Bike Club and given a police escort when it set off from Ashton Moss, Ashton under Lyne.
The Convoy of Happiness is organised by limousine companies from across the north west, who foot the bill for the day.

Everyone feared the worse as torrential rain poured down during the drive to the resort, slowed down to 30mph on the M61 but by the time the fleet arrived the sun had put in a welcome appearance.


"The thing about this is it is not just going to Blackpool, it's going to Blackpool in style in a stretch limousine and it's amazing to see the smiles on the children's faces.

"The day is made possible by the kindness of limo drivers from across the north west and I'd like to thank them all." As soon as the vehicles arrived back in Greater Manchester plans for next year's trip were already being drawn up.

It's a long shot at
world record

Passers-by may think their eyes are deceiving them as a mighty convoy of limousines flood a famous promenade.
Dozens upon dozens of luxury stretched motors from as far as Scotland and London will descend on the Lancashire seaside resort of Blackpool next month as it plays host to an exciting world record attempt.
The National Limousine and Chauffeur Association has asked its members and non-members to donate their limousines and chauffeurs for a "once in a lifetime experience" as they attempt to have the longest convoy of limousines down the Golden Mile through the Illuminations to raise money for charity.
There will be limousines of all colours, sizes and shapes,
including a record-breaking Ferrari Limo.

Phil Hayes, owner of Leyland-based company Sophisticars, is one of the organisers and two of his silver limousines will be taking part in the world record attempt at 8pm on Monday October 8.

He said: "It's going to be massive.
"I'm going to be driving one myself and one of our other drivers Lee Rilet is donating his time to drive one for the night."
More than 200 limousines from across the UK are expected to take part in the event, with the NLCA hoping to raise thousands of pounds for charity.
The limousines will meet on Clifton Drive North, facing the Golden Mile, where the officials will measure the length of convoy. At the end of the mile the Mayor of Blackpool will collect the money.
Half of the money raised will go to Blackpool's MRI Scanner appeal leaving the other 50% to be split between the areas from which the limousines operate.
Members of the public interested in being part of the event can contact their local limousine company to see if they are taking part in the Golden Mile of Limousines or contact the NLCA via the website www.nlca.co.uk.

The public is asked for a minimum donation of £25 per person to travel in the limousines.

Golden Mile of Limos




A Leyland limo company is hoping to play its part in breaking a world record attempt in aid of charity.
Sophisticars, run by Leyland businessman Phil Hayes, is joining other National Limousine & Chauffeur Association members in trying to record the longest convoy of stretched limousines along Blackpool's Golden Mile through the illuminations on the 8th October.
The money raised is being split between Blackpool's MRI Scanner appeal and other local charities across the county. Members of the public can get involved by paying a minimum donation of £25 per person to travel in the limos through the illuminations, working out at £200 per vehicle. Companies can also sponsor limousines.
Sophisticars have already been promised over £500 in donations but need more people from South Ribble and Chorley to sign up and other limousine operators to donate their vehicles.
To get involved contact Phil Hayes at Sophisticars on 01772 467530 or via e-mail at phil@sophisticars.co.uk

Limo whisks couple to
special party


.


A devoted couple who have endured terrible health problems have been treated to a dream surprise wedding anniversary party. Penwortham couple Leonard Ball and his wife Dorothea could not believe their eyes when a Silver Stretched Limousine from Sophisticars pulled up outside their home to whisk them off to a special 60th anniversary celebration.
Both in their 80s and suffering from health problems, they had been very excited to see a a vehicle from Sophisticars at their granddaughter's wedding earlier this year, but had not for a moment envisaged they too would experience the same VIP treatment.
The great-grandparents, from Queens Court Avenue, Penwortham, were overwhelmed by their surprise.
Dorothea, 83, who has suffered eight heart attacks, six strokes and undergone a triple by-pass, said: "It was the nicest thing anybody has done all our lives. My husband has never enjoyed himself as much.
"It was a surprise, it was marvelous. I'll never forget this as long as I live."
Leonard, 83, suffers from angina and has undergone several stomach operations.
The retired labourer told how it was their first time in a limousine and added: "It was great, we didn't have a clue!"
It was love at first sight when the couple met at Preston's Avenham Park 60 years ago.
Their children, Leonard junior, Dorothea, Margery and William, all attended the party at Dorothea's home in Castle Mount, Fulwood

Leyland chauffeur
gears up for rich and famous passengers

 

,

 

 

A Leyland businessman who ferries the rich and famous in his luxury limousines has been given a double boost. Philip Hayes, of Westwood Road, Leyland, runs Sophisticars, which specialise's in chauffeur driven and executive hire limousine services.
He was awarded a contract to provide executive hire for the Variety Club Children's Charity throughout the North West. The charity holds regular fundraising functions which celebrities attend.
Mr Hayes, 27, has a double reason to celebrate after South Ribble Borough Council's licensing committee agreed to bend its normal rules to allow him to use his personal vehicle – a Volvo S80 Executive T6 sedan – to ferry the Variety Club's guests in luxury and style Vehicles over four years aren't normally eligible for such a taxi licence, so the businessman drove his to the meeting so the committee members could inspect it for themselves.
After a straightforward roadworthiness test, the Volvo will be able to ferry the North West's rich and famous within the next couple of weeks.
Mr Hayes said: "I drove it to the licensing committee so that they could inspect it there and then.
"They needed to know that it has the appropriate safety requirements, and we are also subject to more stringent roadworthiness tests every six months, which is the next step.
"There is a massive crackdown on limousines to make sure they're safe – and quite rightly so. There are some private hire firms out there that don't meet the same standards that we do, being licensed by the council."
Mr Hayes believes that the latest addition to his luxury fleet will now enable Sophisticars to compete with other executive hire companies and continue the Leyland-based firm's success.
He already has experience of dealing with celebrities under expert scrutiny, having previously chauffeured car fanatics Nigel Mansell and Murray Walker as part of the Variety Club contract.
Sophisticars has been using two limousines and an American style executive car, mainly for stag and hen parties, high school leaving ceremonies and weddings.
Coun Jim Owen, vice chairman of the general licensing committee confirmed that the council had given Mr Hayes permission to licence the vehicle. He said: "We had a look at the vehicle at the meeting and granted the licence, with the condition that a small licence plate is displayed inside.
"We take each case on merit and it still has to pass the council's roadworthiness test before it is licensed for private hire."
