IT WAS ALL JOY for Ronlee Sobers as he was announced winner of the Where Will You Go With Infinity Sol promotion at the company’s Warrens service station last night.

His plans for his children will be boosted thanks to the $15 000 he won towards an education programme.

Sol Barbados, from June 16 to August 11, ran the promotion highlighting its Infinity fuel. Fifteen lucky particpants won grand prizes ranging from $1 500 in cash to $15 000 in fuel, furniture and/or appliances, and $15 000 towards an educational programme.

When the contestants turned up for their prizes, they were in for a surprise.

Unlike other mundane ceremonies, the contestants tested their luck during a game show-style presentation where each had to pick a box containing a prize.

 Sobers, a father of two, walked away with the $15 000 towards the educational programme. 

He told the DAILY NATION he was excited to have won.

“My seven-year-old daughter Zaniah Collymore goes to school at Trinity Academy and I have an 11-year-old son, Xavio Collymore, at Alexandra, so this will come in handy in paying fees,” he said.

“I am into information technology too and I have always wanted to do an ethical course which cost $8 000, so you never know.”

Clifford Sandiford and Mikhail Browne won the other two major prizes. The former won $15 000 in Infinity fuel while Browne won $15 000 in furniture and/or appliances from Courts.

Sol Barbados’ Denise Mendes said the promotion was an early Christmas gift from the team and it was important to give back to customers. (SB)
