An inspirational charity fundraiser from Bunbury has well and truly lived up to her name, by scooping a brand new car worth over £16,000 in a prize raffle draw.
Win Bond was naturally overjoyed after her ticket was the first one out of the annual St Luke’s Hospice Summer Superdraw, and as a result she has driven away in a brand new Ford Fiesta Trend, courtesy of Cliff Dickenson & Son on Station Road in Winsford.
Win is a keen supporter of St Luke’s, having taken part in their annual Midnight Walk and donated to their seasonal appeals, but her charity commitment does not end there:
“All in all, I have probably raised between £80,000 and £100,000 for charities, including North West Air Ambulance, Tarporley Hospital, Help the Aged and Prostate Cancer Research and my fundraising endeavours have included several sky dives, a wing-walk, fire-walk and a zip wire! I love keeping active and believe that it’s important for all of us to give a bit of something back.”
Win, who crossed the border from Lancashire to live in Cheshire in 1961, is over the moon about her success:
“I can’t believe I’ve won the car, it’s certainly the biggest thing I’ve ever won and I’m truly very grateful. For me, I buy the tickets as a way of supporting the Hospice, so to end up with the star prize is just brilliant!”
Andy Bailey, Corporate Partnerships Manager at St Luke’s is really pleased for Win:
‘‘When you consider everything that Win has done for her local community, I don’t believe anyone would begrudge her winning this fantastic prize. I also have to say a huge ‘thank you’ to Cliff Dickenson & Son for once again donating a brand new car, particularly with all the uncertainty facing local businesses at the moment.’’
Chris Winward, Managing Director at Cliff Dickenson & Son, is thrilled that the raffle has been a great success:
‘‘Here at Cliff Dickenson & Son we are very proud to be part of the local community and we applaud the work done by St Luke’s, it really is a special place. By donating a car to the Summer Superdraw, the Hospice has been able to raise over £40,000 in raffle ticket sales which goes to supporting more patients, so this is our way of giving something back.’’
