The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Asec­ond win­ner in the St. Lu­cia Elec­tric­ity Ser­vices Limited (LUCELEC) Face­book Pro­mo­tion has been cho­sen. She is Sheba Natasha Alphonse who on Mon­day De­cem­ber 8, 2014 col­lected her prize of an eight inch Sam­sung Galaxy tablet.

Alphonse beat 36 oth­ers who posted to the LUCELEC Face­book page their “Mo­ment Beyond Mea­sure” – a time in their life when they truly val­ued elec­tric­ity. Her sub­mis­sion was very per­sonal. She was at­tacked on her way home on a dark night.

“I screamed as loud as I could and my neigh­bours' lights came on and the in­di­vid­ual ran away. They ran to my res­cue but the per­son was nowhere in sight. I have never been so happy to have light be­fore,” she ex­plained.

Her post also in­cluded the re­lief she feels from hav­ing a street­light in the ex­act area where she says elec­tric­ity “may have just saved my life.”

Two more weeks and three more Sam­sug Galaxy tablets re­main in the LUCELEC cam­paign in support of the company's 50th An­niver­sary.

The pro­mo­tion is open to any­one who likes the LUCELEC Face­book page, the power of car­ing. To en­ter, they must post a pic­ture and a short de­scrip­tion of 100 words or less de­scrib­ing why they value elec­tric­ity.

Win­ning posts are be­ing se­lected by a com­bi­na­tion of vot­ing: “Most Likes” from peo­ple who have also liked the LUCELEC Face­book page and judg­ing by a LUCELEC Com­mit­tee.

All par­tic­i­pants can only sub­mit one en­try through­out the du­ra­tion of the pro­mo­tion.
