Menal Nishal, of Tacirua was out of words yesterday after being announced the winner of the Range Rover Velar.

It climaxed the highly successful MH 150th annivesary competition which drew more than 1.5. million entries. It is part of MH events cel­ebrating a legacy of serving Fiji.

He said: “I was in doubt when I re­ceived the call. I told myself this person calling was teasing me. So I slammed the phone.”

Mr Nishal said: “After five minutes I received a call again from the same number saying you are the winner of the Ranger Rover Velar, please make your way down to MHCC.

“My family and I always shop at MH, but winning this car was a huge blessing for us. This is our New Year’s gift. And I still can’t be­lieve that I’m a winner.”

His wife Seruwaia Saurara, 26, said winning a car like this was something they had been wanting for.

“My husband bought his own taxi, and this new car would be another source of investment for us.”

Mr Nishal said his family would continue to shop at MH supermar­kets.

He has also advise customers to shop at MH so they could also get a chance to win a car or whatever pro­motion coming up in future.

Carpenters Fiji Ltd managing di­rector, Daniel Whippy said the pro­motion was about the MH 150 years in Fiji.

He said the promotion started on 3rd of October 2018 and ended on Sunday 27th January this year.

“The promotion was a great suc­cess it affected over 1.5 million en­tries, and Vodafone has confirmed the winning number.

“I would like to thank all our cus­tomers, stakeholders, our suppliers and everyone for supporting this promotion and ensuring it a great success.

Mr Whippy said there were other promotions coming up. We have Mother’s Day promotion, Easter promotion and many more.

The total cost of the fully loaded 2018 Model Range Rover Velar was $275,000.
