Last month we contacted three of our readers who had taken part in our consumer awards survey to tell them that they were winners of our £1,000 prize draw. Our winners have now all received their prize money and we have caught up with them to find out what they are planning on spending the money on.

Our first winner, who wanted to remain anonymous, is planning on using her winnings towards a family get-together when the lockdown is finished. She said: “I remember the survey caught my eye and I thought ‘why not, I never enter competitions or surveys and I have the time’. So I did it and never dreamed of winning anything, so imagine my surprise when I was informed I was one of the winners. I had a few happy tears! I intend to put the money towards a family get together when it is safe to do so.”

Another winner, Mrs Moroz, revealed that she regularly completed surveys, so when she saw the advert for the survey she decided to do it. She confessed that when she was first contacted about her win she thought it might be a scam, but when she was told she didn’t need to provide bank details and instead would receive a cheque in the post she knew it was real. She is planning to use the money to pay off a debt, as well as treat her children with money going towards a holiday and a Play Station. When the lockdown lifts, she said: “I plan to treat my husband and myself with a great day out.”

One winner, who also wished to remain anonymous, told us that he decided to take part in the survey as he enjoyed doing surveys during the lockdown, but didn’t expect to win anything. He told “With the money, I plan to first treat my family to a nice meal and the rest will be helpful going towards my mum's dental surgery as I couldn't afford it till now. So very grateful for”
