Winner of a Bournemouth shopping park’s Valentine’s Day competition for a luxury holiday in the Dominican Republic says it will be the first time she has visited that part of the world.
Katharine Rea has promised to send the Castlepoint team a postcard when she and her family take the £3,000 luxury Caribbean holiday in the Dominican Republic after winning the shopping park’s Valentine’s Day competition. The arrangements will be made for some time later this year.
The Bournemouth Arts University lecturer, from Southbourne, was one of over 400 shoppers who entered the competition, and said that it would be the first time she has visited that part of the world.
“I don’t enter many competitions and this is the first time I have won a major prize,” admitted Katharine as she was presented with the holiday voucher from Bill Riddle, Operations Manager at Castlepoint. “The competition was very well-presented so it seemed a great idea to register my entry on Valentine’s Day.”
The busy Bournemouth shopping park is expected to announce a special online competition to celebrate Mother’s Day. Information will be available at www.castlepointshopping.com.
