Two Jags Kierah is a Valentine winner

PUBLISHED: 17:09 15 February 2002 | UPDATED: 11:21 03 March 2010

SHE'S too young to drive … but Kierah Calver has won not just one, but two Jaguar convertibles today after an admirer sent her a Valentine's card.

The anonymous sender drew a heart on the back of the envelope so it would be entered in the Royal Mail's prize draw.

SHE'S too young to drive … but Kierah Calver has won not just one, but two Jaguar convertibles today after an admirer sent her a Valentine's card.

The anonymous sender drew a heart on the back of the envelope so it would be entered in the Royal Mail's prize draw.

And amazingly, Kierah's card was picked at random from more than 12million items of mail around the country for the top prize.

But because she is only 11 years of age, under the rules of the competition it is her mum Traci who will receive the two Jaguar XK8s, valued at £55,350 each and with a top speed of 155mph.

Traci, of Talmash Gardens, Ipswich, said: "I can't believe our luck.

"Unbelievably, I had an accident last week and wrote off my car, so this couldn't have come at a better time as I've been looking for a replacement – though I didn't quite think that it would be a convertible Jag!"

The winning card was sent to Chantry High School pupil Kierah by a friend who wanted to remain anonymous.

To enter the competition, senders were asked to draw a heart in any colour on the back of their Valentine cards and packages and send them between February 8 and 13 to stand a chance of driving away the top prize, or 1,000 other prizes.

Paul Troy, from the Royal Mail, said: "Royal Mail always likes to put its customers in the driving seat.

"On this occasion we're especially pleased we managed to do this for Kierah and her mum with this fantastic first class prize.

"The Love Draw was about encouraging more people to post their cards."
