Lochs Show Car Raffle winner, Fiona Howat from Timsgarry, Uig was today (Tuesday August 6th) presented with the keys to her new Dacia Sandero.
With a high number of tickets sold, the lucky winner was announced to an expectant crowd at the end of the Lochs Show on Saturday July 27th .
Winner Fiona spoke of her surprise, “I couldn’t believe it, I was in complete disbelief. I’ve never won anything, not even a bottle of wine in a raffle, so to start with a car is just fantastic. “
“I was actually intending to buy a Sandero as my next car so made sure to pick up some tickets for the raffle on a visit to the Co-op.”
Hoping to keep her lucky streak going, a jubilant Fiona declared, “Maybe I should start buying lottery tickets as well!”
The raffle is an important part of the Lochs show each year and attracts much interest from across the island. This year, funds raised by the raffle were donated to the Scottish Emergency Rescue Association who are responsible for sending fire engines to Moldova and other similar projects.
