Lucky Gemma wins again in Mail contest

ONE lucky Furness resident has picked up a huge bargain after paying just 10p for state-of-the-art speakers in the latest Evening Mail reverse auction.

The competition challenges residents to bid for special prizes, with the lowest unique amount winning.

Gemma Carter, 31, of Beech Street, Barrow – a teaching assistant at St Pius X Catholic Primary School – paid just 10p for this week’s star item: a set of Bose speakers.

She said: “I’ve entered the competitions before and tried them quite a few times.

“I’ve won an iPad and Galaxy tablet in the past so I think I’m building a collection!

“My son will know more about the speakers and this kind of thing than me. I don’t think I’ll get a look in.”

Meanwhile, the winners of the Evening Mail £50 fuel vouchers were Gilbert Cottam, 71, of Elterwater Crescent, Barrow, and David Garnett, of Thurlow Way, Barrow.

Mr Garnett, who turned 61 yesterday, said: “It’s great to win on my birthday weekend.

“It was a big surprise as I’d forgotten I had registered my car. It’s the first competition I’ve won with the Evening Mail.”

The Cottams have had more luck, with Mr Cottam’s wife, Brenda, previously winning a £250 anagram competition.

She said: “It’s wonderful news. We were very surprised when we found out.”

The winners of the fuel vouchers are picked at random from a pool of submitted car registration numbers.
