Local Lady Wins Prize Draw Bonus

A Derby pensioner has won £300 of vouchers to spend in shops in Derby’s Cathedral Quarter after entering a prize draw.

The Cathedral Quarter Business Improvement District (BID) produced a leaflet showcasing the variety of entertainment and events taking place in the area and invited people to enter a prize draw for vouchers to spend in two shops of their choice.

Joan Clemens from Derby did just that and won vouchers which she has opted to spend at Bennetts and nearby Emily Brigden fashion boutique on Iron Gate.

Mrs Clemens said: “I couldn’t believe it when I won and I’m really grateful.  I chose Bennetts because it is such a lovely store. I think I might treat myself to a bottle of perfume and then a pair of shoes and perhaps a new cardigan from Emily Brigden.”

Simon Ingham, managing director of Bennetts, said:  “We are delighted that Mrs Clemens has chosen to spend her vouchers here at Bennetts.  We have a huge range of quality products – many of which cannot be found elsewhere – and I hope that she enjoys whatever she chooses to spend her prize on.”

Lesley Heldreich, manageress at Emily Brigden added: “We look forward to welcoming Mrs Clemens to the store so that we can make sure she finds just what she is looking for.”
