Free cash for five more readers!
There were smiles all around last week as five lucky Guardian readers nabbed a handy €20 for simply purchasing their copy of the paper.
Staff from the Guardian Newspapers were out and about around the districts to handy out some free money to loyal readers of the paper and the five avid readers of the paper were delighted they were in the right spot at the right time.
In Daybreak in Ferns, James Kearns of Killanne, Enniscorthy, took a breather from his job delivering meat to the store to pick up a copy of the Guardian. He was more than surprised when handed €20 for his effort.
'I can't believe this', he said delightedly. 'I never expect to be given money for buying a copy of my local paper. I hope you are here again next week', he said laughing.
Down the road in Mace in Ferns, Catherine Jordan of Rosemary Heights, Ferns, popped into the shop to pick up a snack and her copy of the Guardian.
She was over the moon to be handed €20 and said it was an unexpected windfall. 'This is a lovely surprise. It's great to get a gift like this.'
Robert Brownrigg of Crony, Ferns, popped into Carton's Daybreak in Camolin for a coffee and his local paper, the Enniscorthy Guardian. He couldn't believe his luck when he was given €20 after he purchased the paper saying it was great to get something for nothing.
'I'm delighted with the €20. It's not often you get given money from people when you buy the paper.'
Martin O'Toole from Carrig, Gorey, was in Dunnes Stores, Gorey, when he took his copy of the Guardian to the checkout. He was chuffed to receive €20 when he walked away from the counter and said it was a 'lovely midweek treat'.
Our final winner in the Buy and Win promotion this week was David Doran of Raheengurren, Gorey. He purchased his paper in Gwalia Stores on Gorey's Main Street. 'This is an unexpected windfall', he said. 'I didn't expect to be given money when I came in here to spend money!'
