The 2018 National Motor Museum Trust prize draw took place on Friday 9th November. This year’s star prize, a Fiat 500C was won by Rosalind Cottee from Maidenhead.
Rosalind was presented with the keys to her new car by the Chief Executive of the National Motor Museum Trust, Russell Bowman and Niall James from Snows Fiat and Abarth. Rosalind and husband Norman, had visited Beaulieu in the summer with their grandchildren, when Rosalind bought her successful raffle ticket in the National Motor Museum. She said: “We had a lovely day, but I really didn’t expect to win anything, let alone the car. I think the only other thing I’ve ever won in a competition was a bowl of fruit, so this is wonderful! We’re both retired, so I will be using the Fiat for local trips.”
Carole McGuire, from Tonbridge in Kent, won second prize, a money-can’t-buy opportunity to take part in the 2019 London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, as a passenger in one of the National Motor Museum Trust’s historic vehicles, with an overnight stay in London. Carole was presented with a commemorative certificate by National Motor Museum Manager and Chief Engineer Doug Hill
Third prize, a tour for three around the New Forest in a car from the Museum Collection, went to Michael Burton from Formby.
Thank you to everyone who took part in the prize draw. All proceeds go towards furthering the work of the National Motor Museum Trust.
