We’re delighted to be supporting this year’s BBC Children in Need Appeal by providing a year’s free campervan insurance, up to £1,000, for a Toyota Proace Electric campervan converted by Wellhouse Leisure.
The 2021 BBC Children in Need show on Friday, November 19th will feature a text-to-win appeal with the most in-demand items of the summer – two tickets to see Adele in concert and the £65,000 electric campervan, plus specialist campervan insurance cover from Caravan Guard.
The Toyota Proace Matino by Wellhouse Leisure is a four-berth campervan with a luxury specification for comfortable staycations at any time of year. It has a kitchen with fridge, sink and gas cooker, a rear seat that unfolds to become a double bed, a pop-up roof containing another double bed, a programmable heater to keep the interior warm and cosy, plus a 150W solar panel and lithium leisure battery. Electronic gadgets can be charged using the 12v or 240v sockets and USB points, plus, for extra privacy, there are dark tinted rear windows.
This campervan is also easy to drive and park anywhere. It is 4.95m long and 1.98m high, so will fit in most car parks and parking spaces, making it ideal to drive to work, to the shops or off on a road trip adventure. It comes with a sat-nav, cab air conditioning, and a 75kW electric engine.
Inside, there’s plenty of room for four people and any gear, such as bikes or other leisure kit. To maximise the load space when travelling, the rear seat can be moved forwards (to also bring rear passengers nearer to the driver); then, when camping, the rear seat can be moved backwards to maximise living space. Both front seats can swivel to face the rear to create a sociable lounge area.
The Children in Need 2021 Appeal prize package also includes “diamond VIP experience” tickets to see Adele in concert at London’s Hyde Park on July 1st, 2022, plus hotel accommodation in a double or twin room at a central London hotel for the winner and their guest.
Caravan Guard will pay for the lucky winner’s campervan insurance for a year, up to a maximum of £1,000, and subject to usual underwriting terms. If for any reason, we’re unable to offer insurance then we will contribute up to £1,000 to pay for cover with an alternative provider.
The text-to-win giveaway will close on November 28th at 11.59pm and the full details and terms and conditions are available on the BBC Children in Need website.
Last year a similar staycation prize package raised more than £1.1 million.
Laura Wilby, Associate Director of Caravan Guard insurance, said: “We’re incredibly proud to once again be involved in this year’s BBC Children in Need Appeal by paying for the winner’s campervan insurance. With many of our staff still working from home, we’re delighted to be able to help fundraise in other ways and hope this fantastic prize will raise an incredible amount of money to change children and young people’s lives.”
David Elliott, CEO and founder of Wellhouse Leisure commented: “We were humbled by how much money was raised by the campervan prize package last year, so are delighted to be partnering with Toyota to donate another campervan for this year’s BBC Children in Need Appeal.”
