Dennis Roberts, a customer of Anglesey-based independent builders merchant Huws Gray has won a brand-new Vauxhall Vivaro van in the company’s 25th Anniversary Raffle
Roberts, known as ‘Stan’ is a regular customer at Huws Gray’s Gaerwen branch.
He said: “I was totally shocked when I received the phone call telling me I’d won the van. Things like this just don’t happen to me. This new van will definitely help me with the day-to-day running of my business.
“I’d like to thank Huws Gray for donating such a fantastic prize to the raffle which raised so much money for such a great cause – children’s hospices.”
The raffle orizes were drawn by ex-Arsenal and England footballer Paul Merson. Whilst Roberts took away the first prize, the Huws Gray draw also offered a further two prizes. Lynn Roberts from Rhosmeirch on Anglesey won kitchen and bathroom vouchers worth £3,000, whilst Ian Johnson from Crosby on Merseyside received £1,000 worth of high street shopping vouchers.
The raffle tickets cost a pound each and were sold at the company’s numerous anniversary events as well as at all branches, with all the proceeds going to the company’s nominated charities.
Dafydd Hughes, Huws Gray, added: “We’d like to thank all our customers who supported our anniversary raffle. It was a great way of raising some funds for children’s hospices and giving our loyal customers a good chance of getting their hands on some fantastic prizes.”
