Free holiday a dream come true

VINCE Thompson is cruising off on a new holiday thanks to a Kingaroy Shoppingworld competition.

The Bell resident's entry was plucked from more than 10,000 to win the centre's $5000 cruise voucher.

Mr Thompson said he could not believe it when he received the phone call.

"I nearly fell off my perch,” Mr Thompson said.

"It still hasn't hit home.”

The shopping centre ran a four-week promotion throughout December.

To enter the competition, shoppers had to spend $20 or more in the centre to receive an entry form.

Mr Thompson said he only had one entry in the competition, which was from Deep Feet Massage Therapy.

"I've been coming here for two to two and a half years,” Mr Thompson said.

Kingaroy Shoppingworld's Georgina Williamson said the competition proved very popular among shoppers.

As for where exactly Mr Thompson was heading on holiday, he said he "wouldn't have a clue”.
