Excavator raffle raises over £20,000 for children’s charity

Derby-based Bobcat dealer, Butler Reynolds Ltd. has announced that the winner of the company’s charity raffle for a Bobcat E10z one tonne mini-excavator is Chris O’Hara, of Trent Bridge Construction Ltd. in Nottingham.

At the draw, Butler Reynolds also confirmed the company beat its target of raising £20,000 for the beneficiary charity, When You Wish Upon a Star, also based in Nottingham.

With a very successful civil engineering and construction business based in Nottingham, Chris O’Hara has been trading in the Midlands area for over 25 years.

After hearing about the Butler Reynolds raffle and the When You Wish Upon a Star charity involved, Chris quickly made contact with Nigel Long, one of the Directors at Butler Reynolds to purchase some tickets and to help to support them.

He was really surprised to be the lucky winner of the new Bobcat E10z and commented: “It’s really good timing that I have won this as I have quite a lot of work coming up for this machine.”

O’Hara has used Bobcat mini-excavators for at least 20 years now and added:

I feel great to be the lucky winner – I have always found the Bobcat products to be a great asset to my business.”

O’Hara also stated that he would like to add another £1000 to the charity fund.
