The New Covent Garden Soup Co. recently ran a competition to give one lucky winner a blazing red MINI One D car and an Ipswich couple have this week been presented with the car.
The competition received more than 35,000 entries from across the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
The winner picked at random was Mr Achim Witte from Ipswich who won the car from his winning Skinny MINI-strone soup entry.
Mr Witte said “Receiving the news that I had won a brand new Mini was so thrilling and the very best news in a long time”. Mr Witte’s wife, Eliana, has been battling a brain tumour for the past 18 months and is currently recovering after surgery. Winning this competition has been some really positive news for Mr and Mrs Witte to focus on during this difficult time. “I’m so grateful to New Covent Garden Soup Company for coming up with such a great prize and we’ll be continuing to enjoy their tasty soups”
Jeremy Hudson, CEO, Hain Daniels Group which owns the New Covent Garden Soup Company brand said “We’ve been delighted with the response to this fun competition and that so many of our consumers have been enjoying our Skinny range of soups. I am really pleased to have the opportunity to personally hand over the keys to the MINI One D to our winner Mr Witte and his wife and we’re grateful to Listers for hosting us today”
