FOUR families will enjoy a five-day holiday in Australia’s Gold Coast, courtesy of the City Pharmacy Ltd group (CPL).
Romane Yangomina and Molly Korere, both of Port Moresby received their tickets at the CPL head office yesterday following the lucky draw of the four winners on Jan 15.
Molly, 35 and a single mother of two from Kerema, was the happiest mother yesterday when she was presented with the tickets.
“I have been to Cairns a long time ago but not to other parts of Australia and this is an opportunity for me and my two daughters to spend time together, and I’m taking my father along too,” Molly said.
“My girls’ father has remarried and lives in Brisbane, and we haven’t seen him for two years, so this would be a good reunion for the family and for my girls to see their father,” she added.
Molly is a staff and salary officer with the PNG Immigration and Citizenship services.
Also, 57–year–old Romane, a self–employed man from Enga province, said he had not been to Australia in the last 15 years and he would really like to go back.
“I’ve been to Gold Coast when there was nothing there and I would love to see it (Gold Coast) today with the transformation,” he said.
Romane will be leaving with his wife and two grand children.
All four winners will each receive four air tickets (domestic and international), four nights accommodation on the Gold Coast, K2,000 spending money, visa fees, and family passes to two theme parks.
Meanwhile, chairman of the CPL Group, Mahesh Patel, congratulated the two Moresby winners and said that it was always difficult to come up with Christmas promotions but CPL decided last year that it would do something to excite its faithful customers, giving them a once-in-a-life time experience.
The other two winners, Mary Bueli of Biala (Western province) and Paul Maki of Mt Hagen will be presented with their tickets in their respective provinces.
Molly and Romane both thanked the CPL Group for the initiative and encouraged all shoppers to continue shop with CPL to be lucky winners of their promotions.
The travel dates depend on how promptly the respective winners get their passports and other necessary
documents ready; otherwise, the trip is confirmed.
