Elddis and CAMC Give Away a "Worldie" of Prize

The Caravan & Motorhome Club have teamed up with Avanté manufacturer, Elddis to give away what we think may be one of the best leisure industry prizes yet.

It wasn't too long ago your very own CaravanTimes, teamed up with Elddis to give away a fantastic hamper to a lucky contestant, in one of our Facebook Live Giveaways. It seems like the County Durham team have caught the gifting bug and this time round the prize is a corker.

The lucky winners, Jane Neary and Steve Carter, a retired couple from Huddersfield, are about to go on a trip of a lifetime. CAMC and Elddis are providing the un-expecting adventurers with;

One year-long loan of a brand new Elddis Avanté 462 two-berth caravan

One year's membership of the Caravan and Motorhome Club

Free pitches at a selection of Club Sites across the UK

30 Caravan and Motorhome Club overseas site night vouchers

A Christmas Markets Tour with The Caravan and Motorhome Club

European annual multi trip Motoring and Personal Red Pennant Insurance policy

DFDS Ferry crossing (Dover to Dunkirk/Calais)

When asked about their prize it became clear that the couple were true caravaners who, we at CaravanTimes think, are perfectly placed to make the most of the grand giveaway. Steve said to The Club "When my children were young we spent many happy years caravanning in the UK. I had not been abroad for 14 years until I met Jane and I now have a new zest for life and would love to share her caravanning experiences. We both see this as a lifetime opportunity!" While Jane told them where she plans to take her new outfit "I have been caravanning all my life. I would love to share with Steve the caravan sites and places I have been to over the last 40 years including sites in Switzerland, Italy, France and Austria."

The CaravanTimes team have spent enough time in the new Avanté to know that Steve and Jane are almost guaranteed a great time and I'm sure we're not the only ones who are more than a little jealous, however it sounds like both CAMC and Elddis are happy with their pick of the winners. Rachel Moncrieff of Elddis said "We and the Caravan and Motorhome Club think Jane and Steve's story is truly heart-warming. We believe they will relish every moment of their year-long Elddis caravan adventure, growing together and making some incredible memories. What better way to kick-off your retirement than this?!" Whilst Brian Morgan, Head of Communications at the Caravan and Motorhome Club, says: "We're delighted to be working with Elddis to offer this exciting and inspiring trip. Steve and Jane are a lovely couple with a real passion for caravanning. We're sure they're going to enjoy our sites in the UK and abroad and we can't wait to hear all about their adventures."

We can't wait to hear about their adventures either and we'll keep you all up to date with where they end up!

If you have any suggestions for sites, locations or activities you'd like us to share with Jane and Steve leave them in the comments below.
