Kia dealer Gravells Kidwelly has announced winners for its Europa League ticket draw, which ran alongside the UEFA Europa League Trophy Tour, encouraging customers to donate old pairs of football boots.
Gravells’ customer, Sarah Bailey, won the competition and has given the tickets to her sports-mad husband, Andrew, to take their 14-year-old son with him.
In partnership with the UEFA Foundation for Children, fans and players across the UK donated more than 1,000 pairs of used and unwanted boots. The boots will be taken to the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan to be given to Syrian refugees of all ages.
Bailey, who drives a Kia Sportage, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have won the tickets for the Europa League Final. My husband Andrew is a huge sports fan and a lover of football, so he was overwhelmed to find out that we had won. He will be taking our son with him to enjoy the game, who is incredibly excited to be travelling to Baku!”
Managing director Jonathan Gravell said: “We want to say a huge thanks to all those who donated their football boots for such a fantastic cause. We hope that the boots will bring some excitement and joy to the children in the refugee camps in Jordan and will give them the opportunity to get involved in the beautiful game.
"Congratulations to the Bailey family for winning tickets to the final – let’s hope it’s an exciting game!”
