Axminster mums win dream tickets
Surprise Olympic ticket prize after supermarket shop.
TWO Axminster mums are heading for the Olympics – after winning tickets to the Games for their families.
Unknown to them, Millie Gigg and Nicola Wills were automatically entered into a prize draw when they bought cleaning products from their local Tesco.
Since February 2012 P&G, a proud sponsor of The Olympic Games, has been running the competition for shoppers.
Simply by purchasing one of the firm’s participating brands and swiping their clubcard, customers have been automatically entered into a competition to win much coveted tickets to The Games.
