FROM winning bicycles, vouchers and more, Marie Wagenaar is indeed a lucky woman.
Wagenaar did her shopping as usual at OK Foods and never thought she could be the winner of a brand new bakkie.
“I am so overwhelmed. At first I did not believe that I had won a bakkie, I even thought it was a prank. I called to double-check if I had really won the bakkie and indeed, I had!” an extremely excited Wagenaar said.
“Before I won this car, I owned an old Toyota Corolla which gave me hassles every day. Now all my car problems are something of the past.”
Having only entered the OK Win-a-Bakkie competition twice, Wagenaar believed this one was a gift from above. Wagenaar decided to keep the news to herself until the car keys were in her possession.
“I did not want to give my family any false hope and make them excited for something that was not true,” she said.
The OK Win-a-Bakkie competition had 10 Nissan NP200 bakkies and two 2.5 turbodiesel Nissan NP300 bakkies for the grand prize up for grabs countrywide.
General manager of OK Foods in Cambridge Tony Veaudry said: “We have given away 12 bakkies in total since the start of the competition. We are very fortunate to be giving away bakkies each year [and] it is also interesting to see East London people representing and entering the competition.”
OK Foods were proud to have received even more entries than they did last year.
