July 2019 News Round Up


Rob Jenner, Letitia Mace and Norman Dewis

 

Welcome to the latest Xclusively Jaguar News Round Up!

Any true Jaguar enthusiast will by now know of Norman’s passing earlier this month and will have read all the various obituaries, however, as Norman was a personal friend and patron of Xclusively Jaguar, I have added in this issue my own thoughts on Norman and how the sad news of his passing came to Rob Jenner and myself, under the title Norman Dewis: A Personal View

This month’s cover picture therefore features Norman Dewis with Rob Jenner and Letitia Mace at the Andrew Whyte Memorial Lecture 2016

We had just ‘won’ number 17 of a limited edition print run of 50 taken from a painting by official Jaguar artist, Stuart Spencer, depicting Norman Dewis in the Jabbeke XK120, signed by artist and driver.

The event always features a charity auction and this lot triggered a bidding war between Rob Jenner and John Burton, which Rob won, so Roger Kemp snapped a shot of us with Norman!

 

Norman Dewis OBE Trust Fund

The trust fund will remain open until 3rd August 2019, which would have been Norman’s 99th birthday.

Details of the Trust Fund account are given below.

NatWest Bank

Account number 15094030

Sort code 01 00 85

Please make the reference Norman Dewis OBE Trust Fund.

The funds will be fully audited and managed in accordance with the Trust Deed.

Norman’s request was that any surplus funds be donated to Hope House Hospice – a charity which looks after terminally ill children.
