Catharine Boyd-Moss was overjoyed to find out she was the lucky winner
of the recent Diamond Jubilee competition sponsored by the Journal,
British Airways and Jacques Scott brands Glenfiddich and Hendrick’s. .
Mrs. Boyd-Moss, a teacher at Cayman Prep and High School, said that when she received the call informing she had won two return tickets to London Heathrow on British Airways, $1,000 spending money and a bottle of 15-year-old Glenfiddich and Hendrick’s Gin, “the heavens just fell out of the sky.”
“We had the competition pinned up on the board as we had just had the Jubilee Day in school, so I had a class full of very excited 8 year olds,” she said.
A native of the United Kingdom, the prize will certainly come in handy for her and her daughters, given that Mr. Boyd-Moss is working in Kenya, so this might mean his wife and daughters can see him more often this year. Equally, Mrs. Boyd-Moss said, “I lost my mother this year, so I might be able to go and visit my father, unexpectedly, for his birthday or something. It also might mean that my eldest daughter can get back to the UK for some university interviews next year.”
Mrs Boyd-Moss credits her daughters with taking the time to search the Internet for the answers to the competition questions. Now, they can work out their options and decide how best to use their prize at leisure.
