We announce the winner of our “Win the value of your car draw”, which was running until September 2012.

Mrs Angela Davies from Wakefield purchased her silver VW Polo on the 15th August 2011, from Luigi Motors in Stockport. Just over one year on, she was delighted when we telephoned her last week to say that Sir Stirling Moss had done the draw and that she was the lucky person, winning back the £6,949 which she paid for the car!

Mrs Davies couldn’t believe it when she was telephoned, commenting: “I thought it was a wind up at first, then the lady mentioned my car and the draw, and it was only then that I half believed it. I was so glad when the dealership rang me so I knew it wasn’t a dream.

“The reason I bought my VW Polo from Luigi’s in the first place was because of all the things that were included free of charge and the fantastic service from the staff. I knew that I didn’t have to worry about my car not being what it should have and everything was explained clearly. I even decided to purchase an additional two years warranty because I was so impressed with the cover which includes wear and tear. For me as a female driver, you can’t get more peace of mind than buying from a ‘Safe and Sound’ dealer. The money is really going to come in handy and I think I’ll treat myself to a cruise, so thank you very much indeed!”

The ‘win the value of your car’ draw was running as an incentive for vehicle buyers to choose a ‘Safe and Sound’ dealership for their next car, and selling dealership Luigi Motors of Stockport were delighted when it was announced that it was one of their customers who had won.

Sales manager Nick Raimo comments: “We’ve been a ‘Safe and Sound’ dealership for around a year now after hearing that Sir Stirling Moss was endorsing the scheme, which was all the reassurance we needed to offer it to our customers. Then we found out about the competition to win the value of your car. We never thought it would ever be one of our customers randomly selected by Sir Stirling Moss. So you can imagine our shock when we were called by Adrian our account manager to tell us Mrs Davies had won almost £7,000! After asking him three times to stop pulling my leg he told me that Mrs Davies was called and told this morning. Once I’d calmed down I rang Mrs Davies to arrange for her to come and collect her prize.”

When Mrs Davies was told that she may have to pose for a few photographs as she collected her winnings, she added: “I am camera shy but £7,000 will talk me round!”

Congratulations to Mrs Davies, we hope you enjoy your prize. Thank you to the thousands of ‘Safe and Sound’ policy holders who were entered into the free draw, and of course to our dealerships that have been helping us to promote it!
