Quorn housewife wins Mini in Hoover/Co-op competition

Loughborough Echo - 8th September 1972

Mrs Jacqueline Stirling, of 13 Castledine Avenue, Quorn, who over the last three years has won a host of prizes in national competition, was on Saturday handed the keys of a brand new mini by Mr G W Calcroft, chief executive officer of Leicestershire Co-operative Society.

She won the car, her most valuable prize to date, in a competition organised by Hoover Ltd, through co-operative societies all over the country.

Mrs Stirling set out at the beginning of this year to win for herself and her family, a holiday, a car and a colour TV set. She won the holiday earlier in the year - but unfortunately was unable to take it at the time specified and so received its value in money. She has now won the car and is looking for a competition with a colour TV as prize .

Other prizes she has won include a year's supply of smoked salmon, two footballs, five cameras, two radio alarm clocks, four table soccer games, a child's tricycle and 500 in cash.

This lucky housewife enters an average of 25 competition a month and admits that she gets disappointed if a fortnight passes without winning something!
