An early Christmas surprise

Karl, our Senior Front-end Developer, got the biggest surprise this week as he won the Ents24 Days of Christmas!

Loving Christmas as I do, I was super excited to open the 24 calendar doors of the Ents24 Days of Christmas competition. Each day revealed an exciting prize to win, including comedy tickets, DVDs galore and signed One Direction dolls!

I saw some prizes that I would love to have won, including tickets to see Sarah Millican and see Micky Flanagan live, a trip to Legoland Windsor, and tickets to see the Harlem Globetrotters.


Then, one cold and frosty morn, on the week before Christmas, I received a phone call from Elle at Ents24 to congratulate me on winning the competition. I was shocked that I had won! But which prize had I won? Was it the tickets to see Jimmy Carr, a meal and entry to Rock of Ages in London, or the amazing signed One Direction dolls? I had forgotten to ask so would wait for my confirmation email.

I received the confirmation email to say I had won EVERYTHING! I had not read the instructions properly and thought I would win one of the 24 prizes, if at all!

Santa is coming...

Three people, dressed in festive attire, climbed the stairs to Gibe's office in Bristol to present me with two boxes of goodies, along with details about the tickets for numerous events. I had my picture taken with the lovely Elle, who gave me the first box full of DVDs and CDs.

Christmas Cheer

So for those of you, like myself, who think competitions are a worthless cause, think again! I won a competition and it was very unexpected.

Thank you to Ents24 for such an epic early Chirstmas surprise!

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate and have a great festive period leading to a fantastic New Year!
