A KEEN competitor won his ‘best ever prize’ when he entered our latest Bid Lo contest.

David Kennedy, 61, of Ingleton, picked up a £250 voucher for Dales Crest Travel, Kirkby Lonsdale, after bidding just 39p in the popular reverse auction.

He said: “I do a few competitions and it’ll be the best thing I’ve ever won!”

Mr Kennedy, a mechanic, says he plans to use his prize to take wife, Norma and their spaniel, Sweep, away somewhere in the British Isles.

“Because we have the dog we tend to holiday in the UK,” added the astronomy and fly fishing enthusiast.

“It’ll be really nice to have a few days away.”

Other winners include Bolton man, Colin Carter, who won a £500 bed from Kendal’s Bedland and a scooter from Scooter Market in Carnforth.

Three Warrington residents also struck lucky, including Mrs K Beresford, who won a Festool Cordless Drill worth £600 from Mercers, Lyn Gordon, who won a Kindle Fire worth £129 and Hayley Payton who won a £600 gym membership.

Mrs B Matthews, of Chorley, and Lynne Terry, of Darwen, both won a £250 Chiquitos voucher.
