Sharon Ann Evans from Birmingham won a brand-new Volkswagen up! following success in our latest competition.

The lucky winner entered the competition on our Facebook page during the Real Sale. Along with four other finalists, Sharon was invited to Arnold Clark’s Glasgow head office to participate in a competition hosted by sports presenter Peter Martin, which was streamed live on the Arnold Clark Facebook page.

All the contestants had to do was pick the lucky key from a choice of ten envelopes. If the car opened when they pressed the fob button, they won the car. The competition went right down to the wire and with just two envelopes on the table, Sharon selected the winning key, making her 600-mile round trip all the more worthwhile.

Although the other finalists missed out on a car, they all went home with £100 in Love2shop vouchers.

On winning the competition, Sharon ran around the showroom in celebration and was overcome with emotion afterwards!

After taking some time to reflect, Sharon said: ‘It was a bit of a shock. I do comp a lot – it’s my hobby and Arnold Clark do loads. I’ve never been lucky before and I saw this one for the car and I thought I may be in with a chance. I just answered a simple question on Facebook and they picked me! It really is life changing for me. I’m so excited I could burst.’

Just a couple of weeks after winning, Sharon made another journey to Arnold Clark, this time the Oldbury Motorstore where her brand-new car was perfectly presented and awaiting her collection.

Jonathan Ferguson, General Manager at Arnold Clark Oldbury Motorstore said: ‘The Real Sale is all about giving our customers a great deal and there’s no better deal than a free car. The Volkswagen up! is a fantastic city car with plenty of character and I’m sure Sharon will enjoy many years of happy driving. We were delighted to hand it over to her at our Oldbury Motorstore.’
