A popular MINI One Convertible, supplied by Barons, Farnborough, was the star prize in this year's National Motor Museum Trust Prize Draw and the lucky winner was Mrs Helen Dacey, from Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Mrs Darcy bought her ticket while visiting Beaulieu's 'Trucks and Troops' Military Vehicle show in May 2010.
At the prize giving ceremony outside Palace House, Mrs Dacey was presented with the keys to her new car by Lord Montagu. Mrs Dacey, who purchased just one ticket in the draw, said: "We had a wonderful day out at Beaulieu; the museum far exceeded our expectations and we're really pleased that you have another 45k to invest in your excellent facilities."
The draw raised over £45,000 to further the work of the National Motor Museum Trust which is responsible for the world-renowned collection of over 250 motor vehicles and thousands of artifacts.Published 17 December 2010
