After tragically losing his wife to leukemia, one British man decided to create an incredible replica of a Coca-Cola truck to help raise money for a cancer charity.
When Barrie Hall’s wife passed away in 2010, he knew he had to do something to help rid the world of cancer. The creative 73-year-old was inspired to transform his late wife’s mobility scooter into something breathtaking.
To honor the upcoming holiday season, Hall worked tirelessly to create a mini version of a Coca-Cola truck, complete with their recognizable version of Santa painted on the side. Although his family was unsure of his project at first, his six children and twelve grandchildren are now huge fans of Hall’s work of art.
Hall will begin driving the truck around town in December to collect money for a local cancer charity. The almost year-long project helped Hall find closure and purpose during a difficult time in his life while also spreading awareness about a devastating disease.
“An old mobility scooter can turn into something magical,” Hall told the BBC. “[It was a] stupid idea I had, but I’ve made it come to life.” Click below to see Hall take his incredible creation on a test drive around town.
