Catholic Church Puts Toyota Corolla As Top Bazaar Prize 

By Francis Tim Mbom

The Catholic Church Newtown in Limbe has put up a Toyota Corolla as the top prize during the 2011 Harvest Thanksgiving Bazaar sometime on December 4.

Mrs. Martha Ndipchot, who made the announcement during the 10 am mass, said besides the car, the Harvest Committee has also lined up other very catchy prizes: a motorcycle, a plasma screen TV, a deep freezer and a sewing machine. "There are 20 other equally very handsome consolatory prizes," Mrs. Ndipchot said. As to why all the fabulous prizes, she said the Holy Family Parish has a number of projects to accomplish.

She said there were plans to completely transform the Church Hall to a one-storey building in order to have more space. The President of the Parish Council, John Ndakwa, told The Post that they decided to make a difference in the potential winner’s life as well.

"These are the kinds of prizes that encourage people to participate," he said. "There are so many people who have been dreaming of having a car but they have not been able to afford one. So this an opportunity for them just to pick up FCFA 200 and come to the Catholic Church Newtown and God will bless one of them with one," he added. Ndakwa, nevertheless, said the car was not going to be a brand new one but "a brand new second hand" coming straight from Europe.

"I am sure that by August, the car would be arriving and will be ready and waiting for the lucky winner," he said. He said the bazaar was not limited to Catholic Christians. "Anybody can buy a ticket from the Catholic Church Newtown or from any of our accredited vendors," said Ndakwa.
