Leona John, who is a Social Worker living in Enhams, commented: “I feel more than excited because it is the first time that I am winning something, and I must count this as my very lucky day and I will always cherish this gift.”

Smiling all the way, Elvis John who hails from Murray’s Village said: “I really wanted a system and a good phone, so I am glad.”

Taking home the Playstation 3, Richardson, who is a Police Officer, said that he is surprised to have won. The Barrouallie resident said that he has little experience with game systems but said: “I will learn.”

James said: “I’m elated and thankful to Digicel.”
