Donegal Man Drives Away With Brand New Ford Focus


The winner of the Irish Wheelchair Association’s (IWA) Super Ford Focus Car Draw, Michael McElhinney, from Carndonagh, Co. Donegal, collected his brand new Ford Focus today from Hegarty’s Auto Services Ltd, Carnamuggagh, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal.

Michael, who is also a member of the Association, purchased the winning €2 ticket from Irish Wheelchair Association and was revealed as the winner of the prize draw which took place in late December 2013.

Ford Ireland generously supports the Irish Wheelchair Associations fundraising campaign the ‘Super Ford Focus Car Draw’ on an annual basis. This initiative is a very important fundraiser for the Association, as it raises essential funds which are immediately invested into the range of services which IWA provides to people with disabilities in their own homes and communities throughout Ireland.

Speaking about the fundraising initiative and the ongoing partnership between Ford Ireland and the Irish Wheelchair Association, Patrick McKinney of Hegarty’s Auto Services, main Ford Dealer explained:

Hegarty’s Auto Services were delighted to learn that local man Michael was the winner of the Associations Super Ford Focus Car Draw. People with disabilities are an important part of Ford’s customer base. Ford Ireland is always trying to understand the requirements of people with disabilities better. We aim to offer safe vehicles which are both affordable and easily adapted, so that as many people with disabilities as possible can enjoy the benefits of being on the road. I hope that Michael receives years of enjoyment from his brand new Ford Focus.

Michael who is a member of the Irish Wheelchair Association was delighted to be the lucky winner of the Super Ford Focus Car Draw and as he collected the keys to his prize he commented:

I was shocked when I received the call from the Irish Wheelchair Association’s Fundraising Department last December. I purchased the winning ticket from the Associations magazine SpokeOut for just €2 in order to support the charity who provides services to people with disabilities throughout Donegal, I never expected to be driving away with a brand new Ford Focus today.
