New Driver NI’s ‘Touch The Car’ Competition taking place June 2021, is proudly sponsored by CRASH Services and JMK Solicitors.
CRASH Services and JMK Solicitors are once again delighted to be corporate partners of New Driver Safety Ambassador Limited, offering a chance to win a new car this June in the ‘Touch The Car’ Competition.
New Driver is a community interest company that aims to educate all new drivers and passengers on making good motoring decisions. The company’s representative visits over 100 sixth form year students in schools each year to deliver a safe-motoring presentation and offer advice to anyone about to start driving.
Stephen Savage, Project Manager at New Driver Safety Ambassadors commented, “After a difficult year of lockdown, we are delighted to offer ten readers the chance to win a new Dacia Sandero Access SCe 75* (worth £6,995) and £1000 towards insurance. The prize is kindly sponsored by CRASH Services and JMK Solicitors, and insurance by AB&C Insurance.
On Saturday 26th June ten participants from across Northern Ireland will join us at Shelbourne Motors, Newry for their chance to take home a new car. They will have the full day to keep their hand on the car with the last person still ‘touching the car’ being crowned the winner, with a live interview on Q Radio! There will be some surprises and challenges thrown in during the day as Q Radio will be in attendance!”
Participants entering the ‘Touch The Car’ Competition include Danielle Walsh – St. Louis G.S. Ballymena, Tom Savage – Our Lady and St Patricks College Knock, Craig McLaughlin – Dalriada School Ballymoney, Jessica Cuthbertson – Omagh High School, Anthony McGarrigle – St Malachys College Belfast and Clare Diamond – St Patrick’s Maghera. The final three participants will be drawn to enter the competition on 15th June. The participants were randomly selected over the last number of months, after they completed the safe motoring presentation on the New Driver website.
Ronan Marshall, Marketing Manager at Shelbourne Motors is looking forward to the event “It will be a very exciting day for us and good to see some positivity for young drivers after a long and difficult year. It’s something new and creative I’ve never seen before”.
Jonathan McKeown, CEO at CRASH Services said “We are delighted to support New Driver Safety Ambassadors. As an accident management company, we feel there is a real importance to educating novice motorists on the importance of safe driving as they progress into the roads for the first time. We are delighted to offer one lucky person the chance of winning a new car this summer!”
