Star prize more than new holiday home owners bargained for at North Dales

Posted on 23 Sep 2009

When North Dales Leisure Park needed a brand new motor for a promotion they were organising, they turned to Jennings Ford who were more than willing to assist with the request.

One phone call to the Cargo Fleet Lane dealership in Middlesbrough and a brand new Fiesta 1.25 was ordered, inspected and delivered in time for the North Dales’ 2009 Sales Promotion event.

The promotion involved any customer purchasing a caravan or lodge holiday home, or any existing owner upgrading their holiday home being entered into a prize draw.

Finalists were selected from each of the parks, who then attended a champagne reception at North Dales Barnard Castle Park – River View to see if they had won any of the prizes from the promotion. In addition to the star prize of a brand new Ford Fiesta car, a home entertainment package, free holiday home site fees for a year and other prizes were also up for grabs.

The finalists randomly selected one of five sealed boxes, each one containing a prize.

Proud new caravan owners Pat and Keith Ley, who have recently purchased their new luxury caravan at North Dales’ Leisure Parks’ Derbyshire Park at Ashbourne Heights, couldn’t believe their luck when they picked up the star prize.

The couple decided to buy a holiday home following their retirement in order to enjoy more quality leisure time with their children and grandchildren, but didn’t bank on coming away with the star prize as well – a brand new Ford Fiesta worth over £13,000.

Pat said: “I was in complete disbelief when I reached into the box and found a set of car keys – it took me a little while to realise that we’d actually won!”

The Leys had been looking to replace their current car for a newer, more economical car, so winning the new Fiesta was like a dream come true.

Pat and Keith, who enjoy travelling and site seeing, will now be able to do it in style and comfort thanks to North Dales Leisure Parks.
