The Marks & Spencer hamper was presented to Kelley at her home and features a collection of festive treats including savoury chutneys and conserves, sweet treats such as Christmas pudding, hand decorated Holly and Ivy bar cake and gourmet Belgian chocolates, De Saint Gall premier cru brut champagne and, finest reserve Port. All presented in an elegant black bonded leather box.

Kelley said: “I was really pleased to win the hamper, we have tried to be a bit more careful with our Christmas spending this year so it’s great to have something special for over the holidays.

“Not only did Ovenu leave my oven spotless, they have made my Christmas that bit more special with this prize. We have earmarked a couple of items to give away and as we are having the whole family over for Christmas I’m sure they will be digging in!”

Mike Korniotis said: “Kelley was absolutely over the moon when I called her to say she had won the hamper. Having cleaned her mum’s, sister-in-law’s and her brother’s ovens too hopefully the hamper can be shared out amongst the family over Christmas. It was also really nice to see her again to wish her a Happy Christmas and to present her with the hamper.

“The response to the prize draw from our customers all over the country was excellent.  I couldn’t have hand picked a better person to have been the lucky winner.”
