Glacia Evans, a Digicel prepaid customer and resident of the Dennery village, received a once in a lifetime experience in the UK, after winning the Digicel promotion “Trip to see Chelsea verses Manchester United live.”
The promotion which started in September 2013 came to an end on November 4, 2013 with Evans emerging as the successful winner of an all-expense paid trip to Stamford Bridge in London to see the football match between Chelsea Football Club and Manchester United.
The eight-week promotion gave all Digicel customers an opportunity to participate by texting their names and email addresses to 4748.
Evan’s number was randomly selected from the thousands of participants to represent St. Lucia at the prestigious football match in Stamford Bridge, London.
Evans boarded her flight at the George FL Charles Airport last week Wednesday, January 15, 2014 where she landed in Barbados to join up with the other nine Digicel winners from across the Caribbean islands. Their journey as a group continued to London where they all landed on Thursday, January 16, 2014. Whilst in London, Evans toured the Stamford Bridge Stadium, the Brixton Caribbean Market Digicel Diaspora Stores, the famous Portobello Market in Notting Hill and the Westfield Shopping Center as well as a range of historic museums.
“This was an unforgettable experience for me. Being part of an international football match surrounded by Chelsea fans was amazing”, explained Evans.
“I have always longed to visit the United Kingdom and being the winner of this prize from Digicel has just made my dream come true.”
The highly anticipated Chelsea Football Club verses Manchester United match took place on Sunday January 19, 2014 at Stamford Bridge with a 3-1 win, in favour of Chelsea FC.
“Digicel is always delighted to provide customers with extraordinary opportunities which they would otherwise not have received. Evans was very excited throughout the promotion and messaged Digicel’s facebook page daily checking to see whether a winner had been selected. At the end of the promotion she was overjoyed to find out, that she was in fact the lucky winner of the trip to London” commented Sergin John Baptiste Public Relations & Communications Executive.
“Glacia’s prize included airfare, ground transportation, hotel accommodation, spending money and football tickets to the match.”
Digicel is committed to changing the lives of customers in St Lucia and it was indeed a pleasure to have collaborated with the Chelsea Football Club on such a remarkable promotion. Unforgettable, life time memories were made in London for Evans and Digicel was happy to have made this dream possible for this loyal customer.
