News Release: Kenilworth winner drives away with Smart Car prize

Kenilworth resident Ruth Vaughan scooped the top prize in the Win A Smart Car competition organised by Birmingham-based Finesse Windows. The winning entry was drawn at a special fundraising gala for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

The Smart Fortwo Pulse car was presented to Mrs Vaughan by the Managing Director of Finesse Windows, Russell Bridge. Mrs Vaughan lived in south Birmingham before moving to Kenilworth, so returned to a familiar name when looking for home improvements.

Commenting on her win, Ruth Vaughan says: “I was shocked and thrilled to received the news that I’d won. I entered when I visited the Finesse showroom with my daughter, but you never expect to actually win!”

Russell Bridge says: “We hope that Mrs Vaughan enjoys many happy miles of safe motoring in her new Smart car. The competition generated so much interest, that 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.”

Motor Neurone Disease is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting. It can affect any adult at any age and there is currently no cure.

Russell Bridge explains: “Held in honour of my father, David Bridge, the co-founder of our family business, our fundraising gala raised over £2000 to fund vital research and support for people affected by the disease. We’d like to thank everyone who donated their time and money.”

Kenilworth residents are invited to enter the latest Finesse Windows competition, to win one of the company’s range of ultra-secure Palladio doors. Entries can by made by visiting or by calling Finesse Windows on 0121 433 3027.
