A Halifax woman has bagged the holiday of a lifetime thanks to Vauxhall retailer, Perrys.

In August, all motorists who purchased a new or used car or van from Perrys dealerships across the country were entered into a prize draw to win a trip to either Dubai, New York, Las Vegas or Lanzarote.

Lucky Lynn Ellison, 61, purchased a Vauxhall Corsa at the dealership in Huddersfield – and was chosen as the winner, beating hundreds of people! She will now be flying to New York next spring with her husband, Dennis and will be treated to a 5* luxury stay at a hotel in Manhattan, plus a helicopter tour of the Big Apple.

Lynn said: “I couldn’t believe it when I’d been told I had won the competition from Perrys. I’d been on the look-out for a new car for a while, and when I saw the Vauxhall Corsa I thought it would be perfect for me – I had no idea it would come with a trip to New York, too!

“This will be the second time we will be visiting the city, which means it will give us the chance to see the sights we missed the first time, such as the Statue of Liberty, Rockerfeller Center and ‘The View’ revolving restaurant.

“I’d just like to say a big thank you to the team at Perrys for giving me the chance to tick a few more items off my bucket list!”

In addition to being entered into the prize draw, every motorists’ purchase came with a choice of a free gift; a dashcam, spa break or driving experience – Lynn opted for a dashcam.

Tony Mulhall, Dealer Principal from Perrys, said: “We wanted to do something special for our customers to say thank you for their business, and to also give them an experience that they won’t forget for a long time.

“We’d like to thank everyone who took part, and we hope Lynn enjoys her trip to New York next year.”
