Route sales operator wins Digicel tip to CPL final in St Kitts
WHILE the Tallawahs may not be in the final of the second staging of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League (CPL), one lucky Digicel customer has jetted off to St Kitts to see who will take home the ultimate trophy for 2014.
Ivor Palmer is that lucky person as he was selected as the winner in the Digicel Summer Up Up Up CPL promotion. He will enjoy an all-expense paid trip to St Kitts & Nevis inclusive of airfare, hotel accommodation, ground transportation, spending money and tickets to the game.
According to the overly enthused winner, "I'm so happy to hear that I won; truth be told, I don't really like watching cricket on TV; I love to be in the stands and hear the screams and shouts of the fans and players. So to be going to see the finals live, I'm just really excited."
Palmer, who is a route sales operator with World Brand Services will be taking his wife, Sherredon to share in the experience.
"If you think I'm excited you should see my wife. She has cricket in her blood; her brother is Darren Powell, former West Indian bowler, so she has long been an avid fan of the game," joked Palmer.
Annalise Harewood, Head of Recharge at Digicel said, "With Ivor and his wife being such big cricket enthusiasts, it's like we really hit a six and this is the kind of reaction any company would want to see when they've worked to create an unforgettable and extraordinary experience for their customers! Our customers are very important to us and so we remain focused on giving back and giving value to them every day and that is what our summer of activities allowed us to continue to do in a big way."
In addition to the grand prize, Digicel's Summer Up, Up, Up, CPL promotion also saw 140 weekly winners collecting prizes of tickets to the CPL matches in Jamaica, autographed bats signed by the Jamaica Tallawahs team, portable digital LCD TVS, smartphones and data plans.
