Visitors to the Kent 2020 Vision business exhibition next week will get the chance to win a brand new car worth £15,000 in a raffle to celebrate Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance’s Silver Jubilee.
The red 1.2 Mini One three-door hatchback has been kindly donated by Barretts of Canterbury and boasts tyre pressure monitoring, a Thatcham 1 alarm system, ISOFIX child seat system, front foglights, on-board computer, DAB digital radio and Bluetooth hands-free function with USB radio.
The Mini will be among more than 300 trade stands at the Kent Showground at Detling on Wednesday (May 13th) when visitors can buy a raffle ticket for the draw.
Julie Clare, of Air Ambulance Corporate Relations, said: “We look forward to seeing a number of our business supporters on the day and they can find us on Stand 338.”
Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance has helped thousands of people and saved many lives after attending more than 25,000 call-outs over the last quarter of a century.
Head of Promotions Katie Eeles said: “The service we provide today would simply not be possible without the kind support of the public.
“The need for our life-saving service will never go away, and your support will help to ensure that we can continue helping patients who need us for many years to come.”
Tickets for the Win a Mini raffle cost £5 each and can also be purchased online at www.raffle.me.uk. The draw will take place on December 15th, 2015, making it a perfect Christmas present for one lucky winner.
The charity is very grateful to Barretts of Canterbury, a Kent-based family-run business famous for its motor dealerships based in Canterbury and Ashford. It currently boasts six car franchises including Broad Oak Mini from where the prize car has kindly been donated.
