Bertrams have devised a topically sporty way to support their From S to N cyclists this week by holding a Wimbledon sweepstake.
Their IT departments in Norwich and at the NAC sold the tickets, which proved to be very popular. Simon Binney explains how the sweepstake works:
We sold 128 tickets at £2 per ticket. A total of 104 separate people bought tickets (some bought multiple tickets). Each ticket bought the holder a male player and a female player. This raised a total of £256, from which we deducted prize money of £50 (£25 to the holder of the winning male player and £25 to the holder of the winning female player). The draw took place on Friday 22 June at midday, shortly after the official draw in Wimbledon and the players were announced.
£206 will be divided equally between the 3 charities Hugh McGill, Martin Beach and Ben Beach are cycling for.
