Local wins top prize

Year in review

Johnsonville local Lulu Quayle was presented with a brand new iPhone7 for Christmas by Domino’s New Zealand as part of a Facebook competition in the lead-up to Christmas. In the “12 Days of Christmas Giveaways” Domino’s Facebook fans were asked to enter each day for prizes, giving responses to a question posed, and as each day progressed the value of the prizes increased, with the ultimate prize – a brand new iPhone7 being awarded on the final day. Lulu received her prize from the Domino’s Johnsonville store manager personally, and was thrilled to get a new phone saying “it was the best end to 2016/start of 2017 that she could have asked for”.
