Bid-Lo winner enjoys a day at the races

The Westmorland Gazette: Evelyn Tayler with driver John Atkinson Evelyn Tayler with driver John Atkinson

Racing fan Evelyn Tayler was chauffeured to Carlisle Races for her 91st birthday after entering our Bid Lo auction.

For just 13p Mrs Tayler and her family were taken on the trip by Ribblesdale Land Rover, based in Settle.

Mrs Tayler took three generations of her family with her, including her son, two grandsons and one great-grandson.

She said: “I like going racing but haven’t been for some time, and I had hoped to go on my birthday last year but the weather was terrible. I had a wonderful time – it was even better than I expected and the car was the icing on the cake – I felt as though I was treated like royalty for the day.”

The Bid-Lo competition works through a reverse auction, giving the prize to the lowest unique bid.
