A LOVE of cricket and gallons of water has seen a lucky Hockley Heath woman scoop a trip of a lifetime to Australia.

Sue Sly, from Stratford Road, bagged the fantastic prize after buying promotional packs of Buxton – the official Mineral Water of the England Cricket Team, from her local Tesco Extra, in Monkspath, which she was cajoled into purchasing by her cricket-mad sons.

Sue, who is 39, said: “My two boys Sam, 16 and Piers who is 12, love cricket, and at the start of the Ashes at the beginning of the summer, they wanted to collect promotional bottles of Buxton which had the faces of cricketers on. I entered the competition but then I forgot all about it.”

The mum-of-two, who is married to Graham, couldn’t believe it when she was called at home to say she was the winner of the holiday of a lifetime Down Under.

“My son took the call and then phoned me at work, but I thought it was a joke.”

Suefinally accepted her amazing win, after receiving a confirmation email detailing the trip.
