A family from Cramlington, are the happy recipients of a brand new 32” LCD tv - and it’s all thanks to Jennings Ford in Gateshead.

When Victoria Ridley’s car was due for renewal through the Motability programme, she decided to visit an event which was taking place at Newcastle Racecourse in Gosforth.

Motability’s ‘One Big Event’ which involved a variety of ten manufacturers exhibiting on the day, was organised to give disabled motorists and their families the opportunity to find out everything about Motability, in addition to being able to test drive vehicles on the day.

At the event, Victoria, who needs a spacious and reliable vehicle to assist with looking after her 8-year-old daughter, Megan, who suffers from cerebral palsy, decided to stop off at the Jennings Ford display where she entered her details into a free prize draw.

“I’ve never won anything in my life, so when I filled in the form for the free prize draw with Jennings Ford, I didn’t think anything more about it,” said Victoria.

Victoria went on to say; “When I received a phone call to say I had won, I was absolutely delighted - I couldn’t believe it.”

The presentation took place at Jennings Ford’s Eslington Park dealership in Gateshead, where motability specialist, Paul Pellegrino, presented Victoria, 8-year-old, Megan and her 7-year-old brother, William, with their brand new TV.

Thanks to specialist advice and guidance from Paul, Victoria has also been on a test drive and opted to purchase a Ford C-MAX through the Motability programme and is expecting to take delivery of the car next month.

Jennings Ford has five dedicated Motability specialist centres based its Gateshead, Sunderland, South Shields, Stockton and Middlesbrough branches.
