A couple returned from a dream holiday in Saint Lucia to find they had won £1000 in a special Manning Stainton prize draw.
Zoe and Ian Laidlaw visited the idyllic Caribbean island to renew their wedding vows at the same hotel where they had married 10 years previously and said coming back to news of their prize win capped a wonderful few weeks.
Zoe says: ‘You could have knocked us over with a feather when we heard we had won. The only thing I ever remember winning was a teddy bear many, many years ago so to win this prize is absolutely amazing.
‘We had an incredible time in Saint Lucia, a place which holds so many happy memories, and the money will come in extremely handy to help us pay for the trip.’
Zoe and Ian were entered into the prize draw after inviting the area’s leading estate agent to value their home during January and which is now on the market.
‘We had invited Manning Stainton round to value our house without realising that we would be entered into a draw which makes winning even more of a surprise, ‘says Ian. ‘We were extremely happy with the valuation we received and Jenny Archer, our Sales Negotiator, was extremely professional and clearly has lots of knowledge and experience of the local property market.’
Jenny comments ‘It was lovely to meet up with Zoe and Ian and have the chance to hand over the cheque. We also gave them a bottle of bubbly to help them celebrate in style!
‘The promotion has been a huge success and generated a large number of new instructions.’
Other £1000 prize winners included Vanessa and David Diovisalvi from Horsforth and Mike Bestington from Garforth.
The Moortown branch of Manning Stainton is open 7 days a week and the team is ready to take customer calls from 8am – 8pm every day. It is one of 19 Residential Sales and Lettings branches across West and North Yorkshire helping people move.
