A man from Carlton has won an Audi worth £50,000 – with £10,000 more left in the boot.

Wesley Belton won the motor after purchasing a £1.50 weekly prize draw ticket run by BOTB, which runs car competitions, and was working from home when he was surprised with the vehicle.

Mr Bolton, who was recently diagnosed with a heart condition and is planning for a wedding, was left in utter disbelief when the car arrived on his doorstep.

The 45-year-old was diagnosed with a heart condition called cardiac sarcoidosis after being rushed into hospital last year.

“This is fantastic and it’s come at such a good time,” he said.

“I’ve had a really difficult year with my health and things are finally starting to look up – I can’t believe it!”

“It’s been a difficult few months. But I’ve had a pacemaker fitted and I’m on treatment now so I’m getting better.”

He added: “I’ve always liked the Audis.

“I’ve had them in the past and they drive well and look great but I fancied something a bit more sporty which is why I played for this particular model.

“It’s my dream car and the money will help us out massively, too. We’ve been engaged for a long time so this will go towards securing a venue and date for the wedding.”

The engineering manager got a model with 395bhp under the bonnet and an i5 500 Torque engine.

BOTB hands over the keys to two cars each week as well as a lifestyle prize – other recent winners have been given £20,000 in cash, a quad bike and holidays of a lifetime.

The company, listed on the stock market, was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has given away more than £47m worth of cars so far.

BOTB’s Christian Williams said: “Wesley seems like such a nice guy and I’m glad we at BOTB were able to put a smile back on his face after a difficult few months. He played for an amazing prize and I’m super happy for him. Massive congratulations again!”
