Meet our 2017 Grand Draw Winners!

Meet our 2017 Grand Draw Winners!

13th October 2017

Widnes Vikings have made their 2017 Grand Draw, with two life-long supporters, Marie and Colin Fairhurst, scooping the star prize – the signed and framed Elton John shirt.

Typically, as supporters of the Vikings for almost 30 years, the pair bought their lucky ticket when they visited the Vikings Superstore to sign up for their 2018 Vikings Stronghold Membership!

Colin Fairhurst has been a fan of the Vikings for 27 years, first going to the games with his father. For the Fairhurst’s, going the game is a real family pursuit, with Colin attending the game with his son, Stuart.

The Elton John shirt will take pride of place in Stuart’s house, as a memento of the iconic singer’s concert at the Halton Stadium in June. 

The Fairhurst family have already renewed their Stronghold Memberships for 2018, securing their place in the Gold section of the South Stand.

Widnes Vikings would like to thank everyone who took part in the Grand Draw, which raised money for the Vikings work in the community.

“I’m very, very happy to win this prize! It’s absolutely fantastic to have something special like this to remember the day Elton came to Widnes,” Marie Fairhurst said.

Colin Fairhurst added: “My son, Stuart, will love having this. He is Widnes Vikings mad, as well as an Elton John fan, so it’s perfect for him to hang up on his wall.”

“I came down and bought our Grand Draw tickets when we renewed our Stronghold Memberships for next year. We think it’s really important to back the team, whether that’s going the game of taking part in initiatives like this.”
