Friends set to live the travel dream af­ter com­pe­ti­tion win

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Perera

Kar­ratha’s Tam­brey Tav­ern made two lo­cal ladies’ Christ­mases last year when they an­nounced them the win­ners of the much-an­tic­i­pated Fly Away From The Brey travel com­pe­ti­tion.

Tam­brey reg­u­lar Casey Parkes’ ticket was drawn from a pool of more than 4000 in the com­pe­ti­tion to win a $5000 travel voucher to go any­where around the world. Her friend Sa­van­nah Mullen-Bryant shared in the ticket.

Ms Parkes said she was “stoked” to get the news they had won on Christ­mas Day and it had pro­vided a huge boost to her and her friend’s pre-ex­ist­ing travel plans.

“We were plan­ning to go to Bali, but then we won and now we’re go­ing to Thai­land and for longer,” she said.

The girls are plan­ning to spend a month and a half liv­ing the trop­i­cal par­adise dream by go­ing scuba div­ing, see­ing wa­ter­falls and even go­ing sky­div­ing.

Tam­brey gen­eral man­ager Danny Blazeski said the com­pe­ti­tion en­abled the Tam­brey to pro­mote its ad­join­ing retail su­per­store in a cre­ative way and had a great re­sponse.

“It was a great lo­cal ini­tia­tive in the lead-up to Christ­mas — a bit of ini­tia­tive from our team,” he said.

“We had over 4000 en­trants and 15,000 sub­scribers to our mail­ing list. This is the first time we’ve done some­thing like this. We’ll do it again next year for sure.”
