SHANE Stradbrook and Kate Hay are ecstatic after winning a trip to Thailand.
The couple plan to head to the tropical tourist destination early next year.
“I was super excited,” Ms Hay said.
“We’ve been looking at planning a trip to Thailand and I thought Shane was lying when he told me we’d won.
“It’s made us very happy.”
Mr Stradbrook said winning the prize had made him keen to enter other competitions.
“I’ve never even won an Easter raffle or anything like that,” he said.
“Probably after this we’ll start doing more raffles and competitions.”
The prize is for flights and seven nights of accommodation.
The couple have been to Thailand before and were keen to return.
“I love the food, the beach, cocktails and warm weather,” Ms Hay said.
The prize was won through the Bendigo Marketplace’s Fashion Fortnight promotion.
Marketing manager Dannielle Downs said the prize was purchased through Escape Travel Bendigo.
“As a local shopping centre it’s important to us to support local business,” she said.
“The team at Escape Travel Bendigo have been wonderful to deal with throughout the purchase of the competition prize.”
