A THRILLED competition winner has spoken of his surprise at winning a £50 fuel voucher courtesy of the Evening Mail.
Paul Cartwright, 24, of Askam, was delighted when he found out that he had won the money.
He says the voucher will come in useful as a large amount of his job as an apprentice electrical engineer involves travelling.
Mr Cartwright said: “It will be a nice little help and a welcome break from my fuel bills.
“I travel to and from work in Ulverston so it will go a long way but it will probably get used up pretty quickly!
“I just entered because I thought it was a worth a try.
“I had never entered it before so I didn’t think I would win.”
Mr Cartwight was one of two fuel voucher winners this week, the other being Mark Wadsworth, of Head Meadow, Barrow.
Manwhile, the winners of the YMCA camp competition in our Love Leisure section were Ellie Walton, from Dalton, and Jonty O’Neill, from Walney.
They both won a week of fun activities at the YMCA camp based in Newby Bridge, Ulverston. They could try out a number of activities including canoeing, abseiling, sailing, kayaking and an obstacle course.
While at the camp, Ellie, 8, was able to try her hand at a rope activity, which involved her swinging through trees and throwing a rubber duck into a pool.
The competition was for children aged eight to 14, with the participants joined by outdoor supervisors throughout the week.
The Evening Mail has a host of new competitions and reverse auctions throughout August.
