Toyota dealership helps Dougie Mac Lottery to grow

Pinkstones Toyota has handed over the keys to two brand new cars which will enable Dougie Mac’s Lottery team to sign up more new players.

Each year Dougie Mac’s Lottery generates more than £1.5million to help fund the hospice’s specialist care services. For just £1 each week, players are in with the chance of winning the £2,000 weekly jackpot, as well as many smaller prizes. What’s more there are two “extra -draws” twice a year where players can win a whopping £6,500 “jackpot”.

The two new cars, a Toyota AygoX and a Toyota Yaris, are fully branded with Dougie Mac logos so they’re easy to recognise and will enable Dougie Mac’s Lottery promoters to spend more time in the community, signing up new players and generating vital funds for the hospice.

Jane Irving, Head of Lottery at Dougie Mac, said, “I’d like to say a big thank you to Pinkstones Toyota for their continued support of Dougie Mac. One of the new cars has been leased by Dougie Mac, but the second has been generously loaned to the hospice free of charge.

“Our Lottery is a vital source of income for Dougie Mac, generating much needed funds to enable us to continue our care services for local children, young adults and adults. We’ve recently revisited our prize structure to give people the guaranteed chance to win bigger prizes each year, and the first one will be drawn in September.

“The two new cars will be used by our Lottery Promoters who are out and about in the local area every day, in all weathers, encouraging people to join our Lottery. We hope the local community will look out for the cars and if you spot one, please have a chat with our friendly team to find out more about the Dougie Mac Lottery.”

Curtis Hague-Mould, Marketing Manager at Pinkstones Motor Group, said, “Unfortunately, many of us have needed or will need to use the services provided by Dougie Mac. We are thankful for their persistent work in bringing comfort to so many local families. We’re thrilled to support them through our Kinto Mobility Solutions scheme by offering a discounted vehicle. Additionally, we are proud to be renewing the second vehicle we have provided for the last three years, completely free of charge to assist the Dougie Mac Lottery in their day to day fundraising.”
