Johnstone’s has presented one lucky customer with a holiday voucher worth £1,250, bringing its year-long 125th anniversary celebrations to a close in style. 

Paula Barden, of Potters Bar, was presented with the voucher after her name was picked at random from the thousands of entries to Johnstone’s spectacular ‘125 Days 125 Prizes’ competition which ran in all Johnstone’s Decorating Centres in the UK and Ireland as well as participating stockists.  

A delighted Paula, who secured a place in the grand prize draw after buying Johnstone’s paint from The Range in Stevenage, said: “I am absolutely over-the-moon to have won. I never normally get the chance to go on holiday myself but my son is getting married later this year so I’ve decided to give him the vouchers to put towards an amazing honeymoon. I can’t wait to see his face when I tell him! Thanks so much Johnstone’s!” 

The impressive competition - one of the biggest in the company’s history - was launched in the summer, with Johnstone’s handing out a fantastic prize to one lucky winner every single day for 125 days, and with everyone who entered also automatically entered into the grand prize draw for the chance to win the holiday vouchers. 

The huge collection of daily prizes included iPad Minis, Sony PlayStations, Acer Aspire laptops, Nikon Coolpix cameras, Apollo bikes, DAB radios, Amazon Kindle Fires, as well as cinema tickets, restaurant vouchers and much more. 

Jane Clough, national marketing coordinator for Johnstone’s, said: “We wanted to mark our 125th anniversary in style and felt that by running a competition on such a scale with so many winners, would be the perfect way to thank all our customers for their continued support and loyalty. Thank you to everyone who took part and here’s to the next 125 years!”
