Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has unveiled a seminal new concept in luxury, crafted for one very special customer. The St Richard’s Hospital Pediatric Day Surgery Unit in the marque’s home town of Chichester, West Sussex, England is presented with one of the automobile company’s most bespoke luxury design.
The Rolls-Royce SRH allows children awaiting surgery to drive themselves to the operating theatre, through the Pediatric Unit corridors which are lined with ‘traffic signs’. The experience of ‘self-drive to theatre’ aims to reduce child patient stress.
Molly Matthews and Hari Rajyaguru, test drivers from the Pediatric Unit, were welcomed to the Home of Rolls-Royce to see the car being unveiled in style at the company’s Goodwood Studio in the same manner for all Rolls-Royces VIP customers. This exclusive event served as final validation and pre-delivery inspection of the Rolls-Royce SRH ahead of the official handover to the patients, their families and the devoted day surgery team at St Richard’s Hospital.

Winners with one award include Arrival, and Where to Find Them, Fences, The Jungle Book, O.J. : Made in America, Piper, The Salesman, Sing, Suicide Squad, The White Helmets, and Zootopia. Emma Stone won Best Actress in La La Land and Casey Affleck as Best Actor in Manchester by the Sea.

As for men, Pharrell Williams was all about Chanel, Sunny Pawar – the actor in Lion – in awesome cuteness with bow tie and yellow kicks, and Casey Affleck’s mountain man look cleans up nicely in Louis Vuitton.
