Rishann Broomes and Shernelle Knight are the first Samsung Galaxy S III winners in the LIME with Banks and Win promotion, a joint campaign between the beer producer and telecoms provider.
Broomes won her Galaxy SIII after a chance visit to a shop in Martin’s Bay, St. John last week, while Knight won hers over the Easter weekend while “liming” at a friend’s house.
“Even now, it’s hard for me to stop smiling,” said an excited Broomes. “I could hardly believe my eyes when I looked under the crown. Suffice to say, I was over the moon.”
Knight, 28, a mother of one, was equally delighted.
“We were relaxing over the weekend when one of my friends handed me the bottle with winning cap,” she said. “I was extremely surprised and I kept looking at the crown in disbelief. I still can’t believe that I won!”
Ironically, Broomes had purchased her winning Banks Beer from Bay Tavern, the same place where Knight works.
Manager for Banks Holdings Limited, Charles Walcott, said the ongoing promotion had created quite a stir.
“Banks Beer and LIME have always enjoyed a strong working relationship, so when the opportunity arose to do something together for our shared customers, we jumped at the idea,” he said.
“And just imagine the odds of our first winner purchasing her Banks Beer from the same place that our second winner works. Welcomed coincidences like this can not even be scripted.”
Rachel Pilgrim, LIME’s head of marketing and corporate communications, said the telecommunications company was thrilled to offer the market-leading Samsung Galaxy SIII as the top prize for the competition.
“Since its launch in May last year, the reception of the Galaxy SIII has been particularly positive,” she said.
“In many quarters, the SIII has been hailed as a technical triumph, so we are very happy to be able to present each of our lucky winners with one of the most advanced smartphones in the world.”
Galaxy SIII’s are still up for grabs, along with LIME top-ups, umbrellas and free Banks Beer.
The promotion ends on May 15.
