Circle K (formerly Topaz Energy), Ireland’s largest fuel and convenience retailer, is delighted to announce Owen Laverty as the winner of its winter car raffle, an initiative that was put in place to help raise much needed funds for The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.
As the lucky winner of the Circle K Winter Car Raffle, Owen, from Co. Dublin will take to the driving seat of a new SEAT Ateca SUV, worth €30,000. Earlier this year, customers across the Circle K network and at SEAT dealerships nationwide pledged their support to the initiative by purchasing raffle tickets, with all proceeds raised going directly to the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.

This includes Small Change for Big Change, The LEGO® Exchange, Raise a Teacup and the Winter Car Raffle which ran in conjunction with SEAT Ireland, along with multiple events held internally for staff.
