Nitro Neo brings moto action to home town

Christmas light switch on

It is with great excitement that we can announce Nitro Neo has been asked to play a major part in turning on both Derby City Centre and intu Derby shopping mall Christmas lights.  The news just broke on ITV News:

intu Derby informed Team Nitro that they are so impressed with Neo’s selfless acts for his community at such a young age, he has been crowned their “Local hHero” and he’s invited to the shopping mall on Saturday 15th November to be the main attraction at their biggest event of the year, the Christmas light switch on, entertainment details here.  They are also rewarding Neo’s acts of kindness with a VIP shopping experience worth £1000! WOW!  We have to admit nobody deserves it more, Neo is a hard working and very thoughtful boy.  Here is the video of us breaking the news to Neo:

The Christmas fun also announced by Derby Telegraph doesn’t end there.  Nitro Neo is in demand this year, following the light switch on at intu, Neo will be whisked away by the main man himself – SANTA – to start the city centre Christmas parade.  Derby LIVE have asked Neo to bring a flavour of something new to the city centre Christmas light switch on, and Neo won’t disappoint. He is going to lead a Christmas parade through the city centre, on his motocross bike of course, in front of thousands of revellers who come to enjoy the festive entertainment being put on by intu Derby and Derby LIVE throughout the day; all this at the tender age of 7!

 

Neo would love to see you all there!
