A learner driver who is set to take her first-ever driving test this month has won a brand-new Porsche worth more than £100k as part of a campaign that raised £3.1m for the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

Phoebe Kneller, 23, of Salisbury, won her new electric Porsche Taycan 4S as an “Early Bird Prize” in a recent Omaze Million Pound House Draw.

It will be her first ever car, as she only has a provisional driving licence, but will be taking her driving test later in May.

The same day she won the Porsche, she also landed her dream job as a healthcare assistant, exclaiming it was the “best day” of her life.

Phoebe was on holiday in Tenerife with her boyfriend, Josh, 25, when she got the call that she had won the car. They had just left their hotel after waking up next to a cockroach.

Phoebe said: “When I found out I’d won, I was actually in a bit of a grump. I’d gone on holiday with my boyfriend, as I’d recently left my old job and was waiting to find out if I’d landed a new one.

"On the day I got the call from Omaze we were in the middle of moving hotels, as we’d woken up with an unwanted guest in our room, a massive cockroach.

“So, my day hadn’t got off to the best start, but then Omaze told me I'd won a brand-new Porsche. So not only did my day change for the better, my whole life did.

“Just after Omaze called, I also found out I'd got the job I'd applied for; it really was the best day of my life.

“It's fair to say I never expected my first car to be a £100k Porsche, I was thinking more along the lines of a Ford Fiesta.”

Phoebe said she doesn’t plan on keeping the car, preferring to use the money from selling it as a down payment on a house and possibly a holiday to Jamaica.

Phoebe said: “My stepdad will have a go in it for sure, but my boyfriend says he’s not going anywhere near it, he prefers to stick to his Skoda.”

Phoebe added that she entered the draw without expectations as a way to donate an environmental cause.

She said: "Even if I hadn't won anything, I like to donate what I can to help good causes, so supporting a charity through an Omaze draw still feels like a win.”
