The winner of the Swoffers holiday competition is donating part of the prize to Les Bourgs Hospice. Steve Mann’s name was drawn out of the hat for the £3,000 World Travel voucher.
Our ‘list it to win it’ competition ran for six weeks earlier this summer and there were more than 100 entrants. Steve said he and his family wanted to donate part of the prize to Les Bourgs Hospice in memory of his sister.
‘It was my sister’s flat that we were selling after she passed away last year, and Les Bourgs was fantastic at looking after her, so we’d like to give something back to them.
‘I was very surprised when Swoffers rang up to say that we’d won the prize, it’s a lovely offer and we’re looking forward to going somewhere special next year.
‘We haven’t decided where yet, I’m sure our daughter Emi will have a good bit of input into that, but me, my wife, and my daughter will go somewhere.
‘All through the process Swoffers has been fantastic. I’ve known Scott Ingrouille for a number of years and he made the process easy and seamless, so it’s been great dealing with Swoffers.
‘I can’t imagine that we’ll ever sell our house but if we do then Swoffers will be the first port of call.’
Jessica Bichard, local market negotiator at Swoffers, presented Steve with his winnings last week. She said the competition had received a great response from sellers.
‘After all the travel restrictions of the last couple of years, there’s a lot of appetite for going abroad.
‘So whilst there are lots of reasons to choose Swoffers to sell a property, we launched this competition as an extra little sweetener.
‘Congratulations to our lucky winner Steve, and it’s great that Les Bourgs Hospice will also benefit.’
