One lucky Londoner has collected a brand-new car from Glyn Hopkin Fiat in Chadwell Heath, after beating odds of 300:1 in a prize draw for national charity Jewish Care. The car was donated to the raffle by an anonymous benefactor, and the draw took place during at the 30th annual Topland Business Luncheon.
Dorian Nineberg, 59 from Mill Hill, scooped the top prize of a Fiat 500 after buying a ticket for the raffle at the charity lunch, which was held at The Grosvenor House Hotel in Mayfair. Tickets for the prize draw added to the total fundraising figure, raising £250,000 that will go towards the operating costs of Jewish Care’s helpline and community support services in 2018.
Collecting his Fiat 500 from Glyn Hopkin Fiat in Chadwell Heath, Dorian said, “Nobody expects to win big like this, so I’m thrilled to have scooped this prize at the Jewish Care event. We had a fantastic afternoon, for a hugely important cause, and I’m incredibly proud to support the organisation. The staff at Glyn Hopkin have also been very helpful throughout the whole process.”
Fraser Cohen, Managing Director of Glyn Hopkin, added: “We have worked with Jewish Care for several years and recognise the vitally important services that it offers for community health and social care. We would like to express our sincere thanks to the anonymous benefactor who funded this brand-new car for the raffle, and we are delighted that it has helped to raise so much during the annual charity lunch.”
Over the last 30 years, the Topland Group Business Luncheon for Jewish Care has raised an estimated £6 million. Every year, the Topland Group also presents an achievement award at the lunch, to an outstanding individual who has made significant contributions to others around them.
