Luck in a cup

Roll up the Rim win a Valen­tine’s Day sur­prise for lucky Gan­der res­i­dent

A rou­tine trip to her go-to Tim Hor­tons stop in Gan­der turned out to be quite the Valen­tine’s Day sur­prise for Lisa Feltham.

On Feb. 14, the Gan­der res­i­dent picked up her usual medium tea – she’s not a cof­fee per­son – and later found out she had won a 2018 Honda Civic Sedan EX-T, the grand prize in this year’s RRRoll Up the Rim con­test.

It was one of 50 cars given away in the con­test, and it’s the sec­ond time in two years the 104 Trans-Canada High­way Tim Hor­tons lo­ca­tion has pro­duced a car-win­ning cup.

Ac­cord­ing to rolluptherim. com, Feltham won one of the six avail­able Honda Civics in the At­lantic Prov­inces, which had a cup dis­tri­bu­tion of nearly 25 mil­lion.

“I was at home, sit­ting on the couch drink­ing my tea, and when I rolled up my cup, there it was,” she said, “Civic.”

“I had to look at it six times be­fore I be­lieved it,” adding it was fol­lowed by a happy dance.

Feltham re­ceived a car on March 19 at the Tim Hor­tons lo­ca­tion at 104 Trans-Canada High­way in Gan­der.

How­ever, it wasn’t the one she’ll be tak­ing home. Feltham has de­cided to swap it out for an­other colour, blue.

“It’s be­yond ex­cit­ing,” she said.
