Morecambe couple take home prize caravan worth over £20,000 in Club Competition

For immediate release

A Morecambe couple are planning a laid-back retirement after winning a Sprite Major 6 caravan and Vango Balletto awning together worth over £20,000 in a Camping and Caravanning Club competition.

Cheryl Goss, 63, who entered the competition online, never thought she would win. She said: “I was ill and just dabbling on the internet and saw the competition and just went in for it.”

Now Cheryl and husband, David, 66, both now retired and former employees at the University of Lancaster, are planning to pitch the caravan at a campsite close to home for breaks with their family.

David said: “We hope we can spend the summers at least in the caravan and are looking to get a seasonal pitch at a campsite near Lytham. This will be perfect as there’s nice countryside and it’s handy for other things too, plus we have family nearby.

“We’ll test the Sprite caravan out locally to get used to it and then think about taking it up to Scotland. The world is our oyster.”

A seasonal pitch is a special type of plot on a campsite which allows you to base your caravan there for the season, making last-minute breaks and weekends away so much easier.

And what about family joining them? Cheryl said: “My son has just got rid of a motorhome and was hoping to replace it, so I think he’s looking forward to using the caravan too.”

The couple collected the prize at Lancaster Motorhomes and Caravans where they also took home a year’s free membership of The Camping and Caravanning Club.

Nick Page, Group Commercial Director at Swift Group, the manufacturer of the Sprite range, said: “The Sprite Major 6 TD is going to be ideal for David, Cheryl and family as it’s the perfect size for a group featuring a front double bed plus rear seating and bunk beds making it a versatile space that’s both spacious and comfy.

“I hope the couple enjoy their new tourer and make lots of great memories with the family.”
Michelle Jewell, Events and Partnerships Marketing Manager at the Club, said: “I’m so pleased for Cheryl and David – the caravan is going to make a fabulous addition to their family and with their Club membership they have access to hundreds of Camping and Caravanning Club campsites across the country that are ready and waiting to be explored.”
