This invite only exclusive event that happened in September is always popular with car buyers and every time one customer is chosen at random and walks away with £10,000 to go alongside their new car. This year Caroline Sofroniou from Bicester was the lucky lady to be presented with the cheque by Sam Michael, Operations Director at Eden Motor Group and Bicester Sales Manager, Christine Denison.
Caroline had no idea she was a winner until she turned up at Eden Bicester to under the guise of completing some extra paperwork for her new Volkswagen Golf, instead she was absolutely shocked to be presented with the cheque for £10,000! This was great news for Caroline who has faced real challenges as her 7-year-old son Jayden-Sean is awaiting a heart transplant. Caroline has been an active fundraiser for many charities like Sarah’s Hampers for Hearts which supports many children going through similar heart conditions. She hopes to use this money to help more charities and give Jayden-Sean a much-deserved wonderful Christmas!
“All I can say is that I was overjoyed to hand over a cheque to such a deserved loyal customer and I hope that the money will be truly life changing to her and her family” - Sam Michael
