Christmas came early for Co Antrim woman Kathy Croskery and her family this year after she was announced as the winner of the recent Love Lisburn competition.
The lucky lady from Clough was delighted to collect her prize - £2,000 worth of vouchers to spend at a variety of Lisburn city centre businesses.
The prize guarantees a fabulous shopping and dining experience for Kathy. It includes free car parking at the newly refurbished Graham Gardens Car Park along with vouchers to treat herself and her loved ones at Bow St Mall, Jonzara, Debonair, Style Gallery, Vanilla Clothing, Music Gallery and Railway Recording. Kathy also won vouchers to be pampered at Jeannette Kidd Beauty and Day Spa, and to dine out and have coffees at Square Bistro and Glasshouse Coffee.
An ecstatic Kathy said: “I don’t usually enter competitions but I really love shopping in Lisburn and when I spotted it on social media I decided to give it a go. I’m absolutely over the moon to have won this, I still can’t quite believe it.
“I’ve three young children and this prize with a variety of businesses means that I can treat all of my family. Thank you so much to Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council and all of the retailers involved, you’ve helped to make our Christmas.”
Alderman Allan Ewart MBE, Chairman of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council’s Development Committee, said: “We are delighted once again at the generosity of our city centre retailers and it’s just wonderful that Kathy’s next trips to Lisburn shall be an extra special time for her. The variety of businesses that contributed to the competition will ensure a terrific experience for Kathy and her family. I’m proud that Lisburn has something to offer all families, and all ages this Christmas.”
