Car competition win for St Martins Grange

7th October 2019

It’s not often that you see brand new sports cars pulling up in the St Martins Grange car park, but that was the sight that greeted residents last week.

Activities Assistant Julia Ashmore won the brand new Fiat Abarth 595 Competizone for a day while at the Gillingham and Shaftesbury Show. There, she entered a competition run by F.J.Chalke car dealers to celebrate their 90th Birthday.

Julia told residents at the Gillingham care home about the about the win and many of them wanted to see the car before it went back to the garage.

Audrey, pictured here inside the car, said: “It sounds like a sports car racing round a track… Good job I’m not driving it as I can’t even see out of the window!”
