Bike Winner Gifts it to Husband
It was double celebration for Vodafone Text promotion winner Ranjita Chand yesterday.
Not only did the 38-yearold win a Yamaha Crypton bike, but a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 as well.
Ms Chand is from Kashmir, Lautoka, and is a secondary school teacher.
“I feel happy and excited today because I have not won a prize of this scale,” she said.
This was part of Vodafone’s Father’s Day promotion.
“My daughter texted to Vodafone’s promotion three times and I texted three times as well.”
Since it was Father’s Day promotion, Ms Chand’s husband Veer will keep both prizes.
“My husband wants to learn how to ride the bike and Asco Motors is organising classes for him so they can teach him,” said Ms Chand.
Mr Chand, 39, a primary school teacher, said he had wanted to buy a bike for himself when he was 20 years old.
“When I was single I wanted to buy one, but one of my friends discouraged me,” he said.
“I was looking forward to buying and riding the bike because some of my friends had it and I was also tempted to buy one.
“I am very excited and very happy and thanks to Vodafone for having this kind of promotion. Everybody gets an equal chance to text and win.”
