When Philip Newham from Verwood bought a bouquet from Petals Florist for his wife Stephanie on their 16th wedding anniversary, he didn’t realise what luck his romantic gesture would bring.
He went to great lengths to choose flowers to replicate Stephanie’s bouquet on their wedding day, which included sunflowers.
He entered his receipt into the monthly CashUnity draw and his name was drawn as the winner of the £1,000 prize. Made up of £500 cash and £500 in vouchers to spend at CashUnity businesses, Philip’s choice was easy. “I need a set of new tyres for the car,” he said deflating his romantic gesture slightly when he asked for £250 worth of vouchers for Ebblake Tyres.
However, to Stephanie’s delight, the rest of the vouchers have to be spent at Petals Florist, (the participating trader who originated the winning receipt), so she is anticipating some beautiful bouquets over the next six months – lucky Stephanie.
Jayne Oliver from Petals Florist joined CashUnity when it was launched in January 2014. “I’m thrilled that one of my customers has won,” she said.
Jayne promotes the scheme heavily and Philip has proved the perseverance pays off. To celebrate the presentation, Jayne also gave a bunch of sunflowers to camera-shy Stephanie.
