Selfless Kathy wins a 171 Renault Captur

Kathy Shine from Walkinstown in Dublin has won a Renault Captur worth €20,000 courtesy of a recent Late Late show competition, writes Trish Whelan.

She revealed how she prayed to her deceased mother in a bid to secure the new car for her brother Mike, who suffers from MS. Kathy won the car from 200,000 entries and wanted the car so she could sell it so that Mike could update his disability van. 

Speaking to show presenter Ryan Tubridy after the win on The Late Late, an emotional Kathy said “I was lying in bed last Friday night watching the show. I’d already sent in the coupon for the competition. You walked over to the drum with all the entries, and I said “Mum, I am begging you please let him pick out my card so I can give the car to Michael to update his disability van.” Her mother died 20 years ago but Kathy fells she is still there for her.

Ryan then ready out her name and address as the winner.

In an extra happy ending to the story, Renault gave Mike an extra €5,000 to help kit out his current van to make it suitable for his needs.

Karla Clifford, Renault Ireland Brand Communications Manager said “We were all delighted to see such a selfless and generous person winning the Renault Captur Giveaway. Renault Ireland wish Mike and Kathy the best of luck in the future.”

Pictured at the car handover were Conor Dixon and Kevin Troy, both of Renault Belgard, who said they were delighted to hand Kathy the keys to her brand new Renault Captur.
