Local postwoman jets off to Egypt to celebrate first anniversary

A local postwoman is busy packing her suitcase after winning a dream holiday to Egypt worth over £1,000 on popular interactive bingo channel Gala TV.

When Samantha Pickard from Maidstone tuned in to Gala TV, which is webstreamed on and broadcast on Sky and Freesat channel 861, she had no idea in the next few minutes she would be celebrating a £200 win as well as a fantastic 5-star vacation to Sharm el Sheikh.

However, it was not until the following week the 36-year-old realised she had not only won the money but the trip to sunnier shores thanks to Gala TV’s special summer holiday giveaway.

Samantha said: “I didn’t even know that I had won the holiday until Ben Hull, one of the presenters from Gala TV and the former Hollyoaks actor, popped into work to tell me the good news. I couldn’t believe it, it made my week!”

After getting married last year Samantha wanted to treat her new husband to a fantastic anniversary present. She said: “My husband and I saved for years for our dream wedding and honeymoon. It was wonderful, but this year we have had the holiday blues as we couldn’t afford to go away. I wanted to make our first anniversary really special and winning on Gala TV has made it perfect!”

Samantha added: “We were ecstatic when we found out we’d won the trip to Egypt. I had been struggling to think of traditional, paper gift ideas to mark our first anniversary. Now thanks to Gala TV my problem is solved as I can give him a plane ticket!”

Gala TV manager Kevin Loman said: “We are thrilled that Samantha and her husband can celebrate their first anniversary in style. We have over 200,000 winners every year and its always fantastic to hear how they celebrate. We hope they have a lovely holiday.”
