Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

A Welling­ton man will en­joy din­ner and cock­tails with one of the world’s most in­flu­en­tial busi­ness­men, thanks to a Fa­ther’s Day pro­mo­tion run at Pa­per Plus North City.

Tim Horne won the chance to dine and so­cialise with air­line ty­coon Sir Richard Bran­son in Auck­land through Pa­per Plus’ Bil­lion­aire for a Day con­test.

To en­ter, Mr Horne spent $30 at Pa­per Plus North City on cards for Fa­ther’s Day. He also re­ceives a new book for his ef­forts.

‘‘It was all a pretty big sur­prise when I got the call to tell me I had won,’’ says Mr Horne, a busi­ness de­vel­op­ment man­ager.

‘‘My boss ac­tu­ally gave me one of Sir Richard’s books to read not long ago and now I’m head­ing off to meet him. ‘‘It’s all pretty sur­real.’’ He will be tak­ing his wife Zoe with him to en­joy his prize on the whirl­wind trip to the City of Sails.

They have also won re­turn flights to and from Auck­land, a night’s ac­com­mo­da­tion at the Langham Ho­tel, a chauf­feur-driven Porsche, a lux­ury spa pack­age and the op­por­tu­nity to at­tend a lun­cheon with Rachel Hunter.

Pa­per Plus North City owner Richard Ba­teup says it’s fan­tas­tic Tim has won the prize.

‘‘Ev­ery­one here at Pa­per Plus North City hopes he has an in­cred­i­ble time.

‘‘We just wish we were go­ing with him.’’
