Three Toshiba customers struck it lucky in the manufacturer’s recent Six Nations Challenge competition, despite the big £100,000 top prize remaining unclaimed.
The challenge was to predict the outcomes of the games in the prestigious tournament. The three winners were:
Tony Murphy, of Semple & McKillop Ltd, won the First prize of two tickets to a 2015 Rugby World Cup game, including hotel accommodation;
Adrian Montague, of Mott MacDonald, won the Second prize of two tickets to an England Autumn International game at Twickenham in 2014;
Graeme Fox, of Specialist Mechanical Services, took the Third prize of a Toshiba tablet computer.
David Dunn, general manager of Toshiba Air Conditioning, said: “Congratulations to our winners, and thanks to everyone who took part in the competition. Congratulations also to Ireland on a successful and exhilarating campaign. To finish on the same points as England, and then win on the slenderest of margins on points difference, provided a thrilling end to the tournament.
He added: “If only there had been a Frenchman who could kick a ball through the sticks, it could all have been so different. But at least there was some consolation for England in winning the Triple Crown.
“Look out for the next Toshiba challenge competition, with the chance to win great prizes and join in the excitement of major sporting events.”
