#CCS6Nations Competition Winner

We are pleased to announce the winner of the competition is Dr Katie Smith. Congratulations!

We contacted Katie directly to let her know that she had won the CCS Hamper and asked how she had enjoyed 2018’s Natwest 6 Nations. Katie said:

“Winning the CCS competition has made a disappointing 6 Nations more bearable! As an England supporter, there were few highlights in a rugby-sense for me this year. Daly returning from injury and showing his class setting up that try v France was my favourite moment! I am considering booking a CCS car to the opening of Daly’s new coffee shop in Leamington. I’m a big fan!”
