Kendal dad wins £55k Ford Mustang muscle car with £50k in the boot - from an 80p ticket {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

A Kendal dad who loves cars had all his dreams come true when an 80p competition ticket bagged him a top-of-the-range £55,000 Ford Mustang... with £50,000 in the boot.

The online competition run by BOTB saw the lucky winner, Christian Holmes, with new wheels and load of cash as part of the firm’s weekly Dream Car Competition. A keen fan, the 46-year-old said he’d played BOTB for two years so was delighted to finally see presenter Christian Williams at his front door.

He said: "It was well worth the wait. I’ve had all sorts of cars and bikes over the years. The father-of-two explained: “But then when my two children came along I thought it was time to be sensible but now thanks to BOTB I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of a Mustang.”
Christian, who works as a butcher, lives with his partner Mitchell and their two children in Kendal. Christian said he'll spend the money on paying off some debts and buying equipment for his outside catering business, Three Little Pigs.
“It’s a huge amount of money which will make a massive difference to us,” he explained. “I work as a butcher full time and then on the side I run my own business so it's a busy time. Thank you so much BOTB!”

Christian will get the keys to the car this week. The company, listed on the stock market, was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has given away more than £47m worth of cars so far.

BOTB presenter Christian Williams said: “I love my job getting to surprise the lucky BOTB winners each week, and being in Cumbria to meet Christian was no different. He’s played for an amazing prize and I’m super excited for him!”
