Congratulations to our Ultimate Competition winner Siobhan Brade!
Congratulations to our Ultimate competition winner Siobhan Brade!
Siobhan and husband, Ayrton and have been together for nearly five years, having met on the Isle of Wight in the UK in 2016. Siobhan tells us, “We had an amazing wedding in his native Spain two years ago, before making the decision to move back here together (I have lived between the UK and NZ my whole life). We live in Auckland, and are lucky enough to be not far from two of my sisters, our nieces and nephew, and my mother. I like art, he likes football and we both love food - fortunately for me, Ayrton is an excellent chef.”
This is their first baby, due to arrive in early April. Siobhan says “Becoming parents is something we have been looking forward to for a long time, we just can't wait. So far though, all we have for the baby is one little outfit, so every single one of the prizes will be put to good use! Equally, as expectant parents there seem to be a thousand things to think about and sort - so aside from the incredible excitement of receiving the life changing prize, it will also make such a difference to us knowing that we now have everything we could ever possibly need for our new baby. Thank you so much OHbaby! We will never forget this!“
Siobhan's reaction to Angela's phone call:
Angela asked me if I was sitting down before telling me the big news - and I am glad she did, I couldn't have been more shocked. Never did I imagine that I could be the winner of the Ultimate Prize - I know you enter competitions hoping to win, but I never really expected to as it is such a big prize and I thought every family in NZ must have entered! I was near tears but managed to pull myself together to tell my mum who was in the car with me at the time. When Angela was telling me the list of things we had won I couldn't even take it in, all I remembered was that there were just so many prizes, and that I couldn't believe how lucky we were. All day I just kept smiling in disbelief...
Siobhans’ message to the prize providers:
“For the bottom of both of our hearts, thank you. You cannot imagine what an incredible difference these amazing prizes will make to us, not just right now but for years to come. This is our first baby and we hadn't bought anything yet - it is going to be so exciting receiving all your generous prizes over the coming weeks, they are things we could never have dreamed of getting under normal circumstances. We can't wait to enjoy all of them, and will be forever grateful for this life changing prize. “
And to OHbaby!...
“Thank you, thank you, thank you so much. This is just the most unbelievable gift - thank you for making it happen OHbaby! “
