When Compers News member Karen Bond won a trip to Lapland courtesy of Airwick at Asda, she experienced a little bit of Christmas magic.
"When I saw a competition to win a trip to Lapland last Christmas I thought my teenage son was too old really", Karen told us. "How wrong I was!"
"I was delighted to receive a telephone call from Airwick to tell me that I had won, and then we had a year to wait until we could take the prize. My friend Helen really wanted to go, so in the end we both went last month along with three teenage boys. And what an amazing trip it was. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, and the scenery was breathtaking. There were lots of fantastic activities including a husky sledge ride, drinks in a giant igloo and a snowmobile safari. The boys loved Europe's biggest toboggan run was was just outside the village."
"I don't know why I didn't believe in Father Christmas because I have met him now and I can tell you that he really does exist. Merry Christmas everyone!"
