Jermilia Joseph of Carriacou left Grenada last week Friday for St Vincent to experience Vincy Mas compliments telecommunications company LIME.
Ms Joseph is one of LIME’s Homegrown Programme Promotion lucky winners for the month of June. The lucky winner is the recipient of an all-inclusive trip for two to experience Carnival in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
Speaking to reporters Ms Joseph said when she received the call informing her about her fully paid trip, she believed someone was pulling a prank on her but when she realized that it was real she was overcome with excitement.
She told the media that this fits into a good vacation package for her and one she intends to enjoy. She commended LIME for the promotion that gives back tangible products and rewards to customers and commended the initiative of giving Grenadians an opportunity to experience Carnival on another island.
Other winners for the June promotion were presented with their prizes of $500 each in benefits and services from LIME.
Ms Joan Joseph, Mildred Redhead, Lindy Richards-Toussaint and Arthur Chasteau are last month’s winners.
Marketing Manager Kelly Rawlston Mitchell made the presentations. He says the company rewarded 10 lucky customers since the promotion began in April. Customers eligible to win must pay their bills on time or sign up for a service.
Last month winners received shopping vouchers valued $500.00.
The LIME Homegrown Programme Promotion is in response to Government’s Structural Adjustment Programme entered into with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The three-year programme has seen the implementation of a series of tax increases in some cses by 100%.
It is with this programme in mind that LIME instituted the promotion with the intent to assist customers for a six-month period. The LIME initiative is undertaken in partnership with the Grenville Credit Union, John’s Boutique, Rubis Gas, CK’s Super Value and Country Cold Store rewarding customers with cash, groceries, gas and many more prizes.
With Spice Mas 2K14 weeks away the company is offering special packages of one month double data for those updating their plans; Free Bonus Minutes; Special Carnival Packages for lucky customers; and lots of giveaways as the company rolls out a series of Caravans.
Chairperson for the promotional event, Troy Garvey disclosed that the company is setting its tone for the oncoming Carnival with bigger, better and much more colours for its Monday Night Mas Band, J’ouvert, Steelband and Fancy Mas Bands.
Without disclosing the contents of the packages that will be available, Garvey maintains that LIME stands strong behind its brand and its products.
