Jaguar Land Rover donates two F-Types to military charity

JLR has strengthened its commitment to the armed forces with the donation of two F-Type sports cars to Mission Motorsport.

The cars will be used by the charity to support the recovery and rehabilitation of ex service personnel affected by their time in the military.

The donation, championed by the armed forces team at the Castle Bromwich manufacturing plant, continues Jaguar Land Rover’s relationship with the forces’ motorsport charity established in 2014 with the creation of its Armed Forces Engagement Programme.

An essential element of that project was the establishment of a Wounded Injured and Sick (WIS) training scheme, in which more than 45 WIS personnel have taken part and 29 have gained full-time employment with Britain’s biggest car maker. Six others had been employed by Jaguar Land Rover’s partner organisations.

“These two cars will make an immeasurable difference to the Mission Motorsport team, enabling them to reach even more veterans who don’t know what the future holds after their discharge from the military,” said Rob Lummis, Head of Employee Experiences at Jaguar Land Rover.

“At Jaguar Land Rover we have seen the benefits a programme like this can have in awakening new horizons, ambitions and careers. We look forward to seeing the next set of beneficiaries begin their new future with us.”
