Meet Our Competition Winners
Phil Holland from Essex was a lucky winner in the recent Kenco Millicano prize draw to win a trip to Venice that you listed in Compers News.
"For me comping is about experiencing something new and I have been very lucky in the past to win trips to New York, Utah, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Fiji and Copenhagen as well as destinations closer to home such as Edinburgh and the New Forest.
This success is in no small part down to the valuable assistance that Compers News and Chatterbox provides both in terms of timely competition listings and encouragement from fellow compers. Thank you so much for your hard work."
Sue Naylor was lucky enough to win a fifteen night all-inclusive cruise for two in a competition run by The Travel Channel.

Lydia Houghton tells us about one of her favourite win.
"My 9 year old daughter, Betsy-May, was in desperate need of some new bedroom furniture. You can imagine how thrilled we were to find out she had been selected as a runner up in the 'Barbie Fashion Designer' competition. Her prize included a trip to the Barbie Headquarters, afternoon tea with 'Barbie' and the services of an interior designer. On the day they surprised us with a huge selection of Barbie toys and furniture items including every girl's dream item a gorgeous chandelier! They then presented her with a cheque for £1,300 to purchase everything else we would need to make her bedroom fit for a princess.
I have won some great things over the years, but this was one of my favourites!"
