A KENILWORTH woman has won a smart car as part of special fund-raising event for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Ruth Vaughan scooped top prize in the West Midlands-wide competition run by Finesse Windows Ltd after entering the contest on a visit to its showroom.

She said:: “I was shocked and thrilled to receive the news I’d won - you never expect to actually win!”

The contest was organised by the company's managing director Russell Bridge in memory of his father David, who co-founded the business.

He said: “Our fund-raising gala raised over £2,000 to fund vital research and support for people affected by the disease. We’d like to thank everyone who donated their time and money.

“We were keen to use the prize draw to divert some of that attention to the Motor Neurone Disease Association - a cause very close to our hearts.”
