A CAR dealership based Widnes is giving away a car to celebrate its 21st birthday.

This latest competition could see a lucky winner driving away from the Derby Road showroom in a top of the range Smart Forfour, a stylish city car with four seats and five doors.

The competition, which is open to UK residents over the age of 18, requires entrants to visit their nearest Motorpoint branch between April 5 and 22 to search for the hidden key.

Once they have found it they need to upload a photo of themselves with the key onto either their Facebook or Instagram page with the hashtag #KeyForTheCar, as well as complete a data entry form at the site.

The winner of the car will be announced on Facebook Live on Sunday, April 28.

For those that don’t win the car, there is a wide choice of other prizes available to celebrate Motorpoint’s birthday including hotel vouchers, spa breaks, Amazon and Love2Shop vouchers, together with the opportunity to win use of the entire Motorpoint Suite for a show at either the Motorpoint Arena Cardiff or the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham during 2019.

Eleanor Shakespeare, marketing director at Motorpoint, explained: "It’s incredible to think how much Motorpoint has grown since opening its doors on April 28, 1998.

"Today, Motorpoint is the UK’s largest independent car retailer, employing over 800 people, and selling tens of thousands of low mileage, nearly new cars every year from its network of branches throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

"We wanted to celebrate our 21st birthday in style, which is why we’ve decided to giveaway a Smart Forfour to the winner of our #KeyForTheCar competition.

"Entering couldn’t be easier and come April 28 one lucky visitor to Motorpoint will be driving home in a top of the range nearly new Smart car."
