Widnes Vikings Fan Wins Car Giveaway with Bristol Street Motors

Widnes Vikings Fan Wins Car Giveaway with Bristol Street Motors

As a thank you to fans, the Bristol Street Motors and Widnes Vikings partnership came together to hold the vehicle giveaway.

General Manager of Bristol Street Motors Nissan Widnes, Mark Prince, and Widnes Vikings club captain Jack Owens hosted a live stream giveaway on social media.

The applicants were automatically enrolled into the competition via the tickets they bought, so the result came as a complete surprise to the winning supporter!

John Sharpe was the proud new owner of the giveaway car, a nearly-new Nissan Micra. John has been a long-standing Widnes Vikings fan since the age of seven - also the age he became a season ticket holder with the club.

John said: "I missed the live draw so I thought it was a wind-up when my phone went and the voice said it was Jack Owens! It was only when I heard my phone pinging away with notifications that I realised it was real. It still feels very surreal!"

Mark Prince said: "We’ve been partnered with the club for two or three years and the club had a vision at the start of this season to do something different. To get to this point that we’re at now, with so many thousands of people having entered, it’s great to see. For us as a business to be partnered with the club, and to be able to supply the car, has been fabulous."

Jack Owens added: "Due to our strong partnership with Bristol Street Motors Nissan, it’s been great to be able to do the car giveaway. We’ve had so much engagement and a real buzz around the club about it. For John to be the lucky winner, it is fantastic, he is a lifelong fan and will no doubt continue show his support of the club for many more years to come."

Bristol Street Motors have been proud Principal Kit Partners with the Widnes Vikings for three seasons.

The partnership has been successful in strengthening the bond between the rugby club and the Bristol Street brand. Both organisations continue to run joint initiatives such as car giveaways, Widnes Vikings ticket wins and reduced fuel costs for season ticket holders.
