Nunthorpe woman becomes lucky owner of a brand new SKODA.
Derek Slack Motors, proud supporters of the South Cleveland Heart Fund, recently took their seats during the evening of the Loving Hearts Raffle and Gala Dinner at the Thistle Hotel, Middlesbrough, where one lucky Nunthorpe woman’s raffle tickets were pulled out of the bag, to become the lucky owner of a brand new SKODA. Pat Bingham - mum-of-three and grandmother of four said, she thought nothing more following buying tickets for the Loving Hearts Raffle - a prize draw organised by Middlesbrough Erimus Rotary Club in aid of the South Cleveland Heart Fund (SCHF). However, the 75-year-old went on to win one of the biggest prizes of the night, a Skoda Citigo from Derek Slack Motors in Middlesbrough. Pat received a telephone call at home to tell her the good news and she soon made her way to the event. “I knew of the heart fund”, said Pat. “The ladies club I’m involved with, Zetland Ladies, has supported the charity’s fundraising appeal. So when I saw the tickets for sale I thought why not. I never expected to win though- I’m so thrilled - you never think it is going to be you!” A total of £80,000 was raised through the efforts of Middlesbrough Erimus Rotary Club. The money will go toward to SCHF’s £1m fundraising campaign to upgrade an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scanner and replace another at the hospital. Mike Overy, from the club and chairman of the Loving Hearts Raffle committee, said: “We are delighted that the combined effort of all the rotary clubs in the area have produced such a great return for the MRI appeal.” Dr Adrian Davies, chairman of the South Cleveland Heart Fund (SCHF), added: “A huge vote of thanks to the Rotary Clubs of the heart unit catchment population, led by Middlesbrough Erimus, in making the Loving Hearts fantastic prize draw an amazing success.”
