Easter is a time for caring and sharing and Super J IGA and Ti J’s endeavoured to do just that with it’s Easter promotion entitled ‘It’s Time for hope to Shine’.
Customers were given a chance to win 350,000 Super J loyalty points and the opportunity to extend a helping hand to the charity or school of their choice by way of an EC $2,000 donation. The promotion began on February 25 and ran until April 2 with Cul de Sac resident Shama Joseph emerging the victor at it’s end.
Somewhat stricken with disbelief, she needed an hour or two to come to terms with the reality of her good fortune. A renewed, more composed Shama resurfaced some time later.
Delighted by her winnings she wasted no time to highlight the school of her choice: “Naturally I choose the George Charles Secondary School. I am glad to be placed within the capacity to assist them… they do deserve it.”
Shama went on further to explain: “Being a product of George Charles Secondary, I am aware of the amount of effort teachers put into their roles and just the same I understand the challenges students face. EC$2,000 will go a long way and will ease the burden on the teachers, students and by extension their families and even the wider community.”
Shama was given the distinct pleasure of handing over the cheque for $2,000 to the Principal of George Charles Secondary Mr. Wulstan Alfred at the school’s assembly last Friday. There, she also took the time to thank the company for keeping the big picture in mind and for creating a means of rewarding more than just one customer in a truly significant way.
Mr. Alfred expressed thanks to his past student for giving back to her alma mater: “A timely blessing this is, this donation will make the prospect of an awards ceremony a reality. We the staff and students are indeed extremely grateful by the gesture of our past pupil Sharma for selecting us as a recipient of this gift.”
Shama wasn’t the only winner of the Easter Promotion. A simultaneous promotion was held on FAcebook where persons were given the chance to win a personal prize of 20,000 Super J loyalty points and prize of $500 in groceries to be donated to a deserving school or charity of their choice.
The winning post came from Ada Ferdinand with her school of choice being Sir Ira Simmons Secondary.
The ‘It’s Time for Hope to Shine’ promotion delivered its promise, spreading the spirit of Easter to two lucky winners, who extended their good fortune to two lucky schools, reaching many and touching all.
This promotion is just one of five major seasonal promotions offered by Super J IGA and Ti J’s annually.
