Monday, February 25. Westpac’s Retail Area Manager West, Mr Harry Solomon today drew the lucky winner of the Lautoka Personal Banking Centre’s new account draw.
Opened on January 24, the Personal Banking Centre located at the Challenge Plaza, had a special draw for customers who opened their accounts in the first month of the centre’s operations.
With five draws of $100 deposited direct into winners accounts during the month, today’s draw was the final with the winner receiving a deposit of $500.
The lucky winner was class five student Lucianne Tupua of St Thomas Primary School in Lautoka. An excited Lucianne visited the Personal Banking Centre with her mother Ms Mareta Mario to celebrate her win with a morning tea with staff and the media.
Ms Mario said Lucianne was disappointed, after they had tried opening her account with another bank earlier in the year, so to keep her daughter happy, she took her to Westpac’s new Personal Banking Centre to see if they could open her account.
“I’m glad we did go to Westpac, they opened Lucianne’s account the same day and now winning this $500, is great, ” said Ms Mario.
