Diamonds are 'Magic' on Sports Bond

IN the last Sports Bond draw of 2009, the Diamond Bar agency of Mandy Gilmore had double success with a major £50 win and a minor £10 win.

For Mandy there was even better news her 50 winner Morris Johnston (A7650) was a magic member so Mandy also wins 50, a nice end to the year for Mandy who joined as an agent in 2009. Her minor 10 win was Peter Parkhill (B4215).

The three remaining major winners are all well known sky blue supporters, Alan Sloan (A8462) on Patricia Thompson’s agency, Jacqueline Bell (A9736) can now claim to be a winner on the Seven Towers agency and Ronnie Clarke (A3669) on the agency of the Development Committee of which he is a member.
