Car Raffle Result
Cornwall Cricket Car Raffle Draw at Dales Motors
The prize draw for the Cornwall Cricket summer raffle took place on Saturday 17 September at Dales Vauxhall, Truro. Dales Cornwall has been backing Cornish Cricket this summer with a range of initiatives and the company provided the raffle prize, a new Vauxhall Viva (On the Road Price £8,600), which has been won by Matt Langdon of Mount Ambrose CC.
Ticket sales have been taking place throughout the summer at local cricket clubs and by supporters of Cornish cricket within the local business community. In an innovative approach, any raffle profits will be ploughed back into the club network with the “top selling” club in each division (measured by the club’s own sales and by tickets sold by local businesses on the club’s behalf) earning a share of the raffle monies.
Anita George (Chair of the Cornwall Cricket Board ) commented “my thanks to Dales for supporting Cornish Cricket this year and to the clubs and local businesses for backing this initiative. Special thanks go to St Just CC, who topped the ticket sales league with 68 sold and to Barripper CC, one of the smallest clubs in our network who pulled out all of the stops to sell over 60 tickets – a fantastic achievement. I am really pleased that, through this raffle, we will be able to continue to provide much needed financial support for the Club network”.
Dominic Cadge of Dales Cornwall said "we are delighted to be associated with cricket in Cornwall and we pass on our congratulations to the winner of the Vauxhall Viva"
As part of the partnership, Dales and Cornwall Cricket have also been running a “Six Hit” competition throughout the cricket season (with the batsman who has hit the most sixes over the season as a whole - Matt Butler of Ladock CC who hit an amazing 74 sixes during the season - being awarded the Dales Cup). Dales has also been showcasing some of its new Vauxhall, Renault, Dacia, Seat and Suzuki cars during matches at some of the county’s cricket grounds throughout the summer. Over the winter, Dales will continue to work with Cornwall Cricket to promote current offers through the League’s 69 League Clubs and through the Board’s web-site, the regular “Supporter” newsletters (which go out to almost 5,000 subscribers on the Cornwall Cricket database) and via Social Media.
