A retired tree surgeon was left speechless after winning a brand new £60,000 electric van.
Mr Boswell was diagnosed with MS in 1996 and has lived with the disease for more than 20 years, but although he sometimes needs to use a wheelchair, that hasn’t stopped him from his love of driving.
“I play BOTB every Sunday afternoon,” he said. “I always say to my wife Rita, I’ll go straight away and win a car.
“I actually went to a VW workshop a few years ago and was told about the electric van, but it had been a while.
“When I saw it on the BOTB page I thought I have to try it.
“I’m a bit obsessed with the environment. We have solar panels, I’m building a pond – and it’s all part of my ambition to be as green as possible.”
It only takes 30 minutes to charge the van and it can travel 358 miles on one charge.
Best of the Best (BOTB) is a car and lifestyle competition company operating at the UK’s main airports since 1999.
