John drives away with new car after giveaway at Eurospar Feltrim

A Swords resident is celebrating this week after winning a brand new car last week.

John Hamill from Swords, was the grand prize winner in the Eurospar Feltrim car giveaway, beating eight other hopefuls who qualified for the final giveaway showdown.

As the winner, John, a long-time loyal customer of Eurospar Feltrim, will now receive the keys to a brand new Seat Ibiza Sport 181 registered car.

Over the past couple of months, a competition has been running in-store and each week one lucky finalist was chosen to go into the final draw. Nine finalists in total gathered at the Feltrim store on Saturday morning and battled it out over a series of elimination rounds.

The excitement grew with each elimination - at the end of each round finalists opened an envelope revealing whether they were progressing to the next round of competition - and in the end John was the final contestant standing to claim the ultimate prize.

Retailer Ger Ralph said: 'It was a very exciting day on Saturday for everyone in Eurospar Feltrim.

'We had a lot of activity in the store on the day for people to enjoy, with plenty of tasty treats and samples from across our fresh food ranges to showcase our range laid on.

'It was particularly exciting on Saturday as all the finalists are loyal customers of all ours and that helped lend to the party atmosphere. They all won smaller prizes as they were eliminated, but John's smile at the end of the day was the largest and brightest."

Eurospar Feltrim underwent a full store revamp in 2017 and the car giveaway was a way to celebrate this new look store and a chance for retailer Ger Ralph to thank his loyal customers. To add some fun to the proceedings, Eurospar Feltrim arranged free face painting and a DJ for the day to keep children entertained.

Eurospar Feltrim are in the process of fundraising for a life-saving defibrillator as part of the national Defibrillator at Every Eurospar initiative. Funds are raised through a donation made on the purchase of selected SPAR Range products, in-store collections and community events.
