Belmopan Teacher wins 2012 Great Wall Wingle from Courts

A teacher from Belmopan is the winner of a 2012 Great Wall Wingle courtesy of Courts Belize. The raffle was launched back on November eighth and ended on December thirty-first. Today, Standard three teacher of Garden City Primary School, Desmond Lewis was handed the keys to a brand new pickup truck valued at fifty thousand dollars. Lewis was overjoyed as he came to the Belize City Branch to pick up his new vehicle. News Five was present for the handing over and found out that Lewis won by purchasing a thirty-two inch TCL television from Courts Belize.

 

Desmond Lewis, Winning of Raffle

Desmond Lewis

“Yesterday in the morning, right as I was getting ready to prepare my lesson for the students, I got a strange phone call. And usually if there is a number that I am not aware of, I don’t usually answer it. But I just said okay; let me pick up the phone. When I answered, it was Courts. They said we have good news. I said what was the good news? I have a balance? The person said, hold on sir. I said what is it? The person said, well you won a car. I said you must be kidding me; I said this is a joke. I said this must be a joke because never in my lifetime have I ever won anything, especially something as big as this. It is just took one ticket. So it took time to process it. I told my students give me one second because I have to go outside to breathe and I said they called and said I won a car.”

“It was a brand awareness and people actually wanted to enter the raffle so they distinctly purchased any thirty-two inch TV and above. So if you purchased any thirty-two inch and above, you got an opportunity to win. It was for all branches countrywide and each person selected a winner. We selected the one winner in Belize City when we had all the names and Mister Desmond Lewis from Belmopan was the lucky winner from Belmopan. It is for the customers and we want our customers to keep coming in and we have to keep the momentum going for our sales. So we want the customers to come in definitely. It is to give back to the customers. It is our way to give back to Belize.”

 

Last Friday, Courts Belize launched yet another raffle: this time for a 2014 Kia Sportage which will be raffled on March thirty-first. According to James, for every fifty dollars spent at any of the branches countrywide, the public gets an opportunity to enter the raffle.

    Right, so if it’s your wife or your boyfriend who happened to get a hold of the kidnapper’s phone to call you for help you wouldn’t answer it because “I am not aware of the number,” and so you wouldn’t be there to save a life because…. well because you’re a limited-scope fool, that’s why.
