A rare glimpse into the work of a world renowned company.

Jim Stokes Workshops Group – A group of companies with a global reputation for the restoration of Historic,Vintage and Classic Cars, based in Waterlooville, Hampshire held a
Macmillan ‘Classics & Coffee’ Open Morning. Doors opened between 9am and 1pm on Saturday 30th September for a rare glimpse at some rare, hugely valuable and beautiful classic cars.

Guided tours were given around the JSW workshops, of the high technology manufacturing facility ‘Triple M’, the division that creates stunning bodywork ‘South Shore Coachworks’ and the ‘Classics by Jim Stokes Workshops’ division that services and maintains everything from an Austin Mini to an AC Cobra. Visitors were encouraged people to bring their classic cars to create a relaxed informal car show with bacon butties, tea, coffee and cakes supplied by JSW Group. The event attracted around 250 people in approximately 100 classic cars.
This event was held to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Chris Green of JSWL said ‘JSW Group regularly donate to a range of charities but wanted to make a significant donation to Macmillan and felt that an open morning would create the perfect opportunity to do that and give the many classic car enthusiasts in the region an extremely rare opportunity to see the work that we do here.
Despite having a worldwide reputation for the quality of it‘s work and the expertise of our staff Jim Stokes Workshops is little known within Hampshire and surrounding region.

This event gave local classic and vintage car enthusiasts an insight to the world behind the cars that they see at events such as the Goodwood Revival and Festival of speed.’
