A Halesworth woman has won a £5,000 holiday of a lifetime after entering a national competition run by fuel brand JET.

Maria Hurren entered the JET, SET, GO summer promotion at JET’s AW&D Hammonds forecourt in Halesworth.

The competition was run as part of JET’s 60th anniversary celebrations.

Thousands of customers across the country won instant summer prizes including barbecue sets, travel gadgets, beach mats and picnic sets.

And four lucky winners, who were selected at random, each won a holiday worth £5,000 to a destination of their choice.

“Now all I need to do is decide where I want to go and who to take with me.”

Louise Hammond, manager of JET’s AW&D Hammonds forecourt, said: “Our staff are delighted that one of the four national holiday prize winners entered the draw at our forecourt.

“It’s very exciting as another of our customers won £5,000 of fuel earlier this year in JET’s 1954 prize fund.

“These promotions are a great way to thank our loyal customers for their business in JET’s 60thanniversary year.”

The holidays will be booked with Jet2holidays.com.
