Stephen Deans, Skoda’s National Sales and Corporate Manager, was on hand today to present Plunket Foundation Lottery second prize winner Mohidin Uiese with the keys to a brand new Skoda Fabia.
“We are really pleased to be working alongside the Plunket Foundation as part of the Lottery”, Deans said. “It’s a fantastic cause and we know that both Plunket and Lions Clubs provide great support to families across the country.”
The second prize also included an escape to Eichardt’s in Queenstown and overall was valued at $38,000.
Mohidin revealed his prize at Gazley Motors in Wellington. “I am totally overwhelmed”, he said. “It was such a shock when I got the call to say we had won.”
Mohidin and his partner are expecting their first child in September. “There is heaps of room in the car”, Uiese said when he looked over the Fabia.
According to Deans, the Fabia has one of the largest boots in its class. “Which is great for parents who have a lot of gear. It also has a five star safety rating”, he said. “The Fabia is very economical and we are really pleased that Plunket have some in their fleet.”
“We would like to thank Gazley’s for preparing the car for Mohidin”, said Carolyn Mettrick, Plunket Foundation Lottery organiser. “But in particular to Skoda and our other sponsors who have generously supported Plunket and Lions Clubs as part of the Lottery”, she said.
“It was fantastic to see that the prize winners were spread right throughout the country,” said Mettrick, who will be in Christchurch for the presentation of Skoka Kodiaq and luxury Eagles Nest retreat to the first prize winner.
All of the proceeds from the Plunket Foundation Lottery will be shared between Plunket and Lions Clubs to support the work they do with families in communities across New Zealand.
