Western Union recently celebrated the winners of their Africa and Zimbabwe money transfer promotion in London’s West End. The company gave consumers the chance to win cash prizes by transferring money home, with one winner each day (112 winners in total) many of whom attended the celebration.
Bintou Berthe from the Ivory Coast was one of the Super Prize winners and the lucky winner of the £2,500 grand prize. She said:
‘I’m so happy, I could not believe it! I always send money back home to my family in Africa, they need my support. I trust Western Union:it is a convenient service and money arrives reliably and on time.’
Thanks Mutange, who sent money using the Next Day service to his family in Botswana, said:
‘It means a lot, I’ve never won anything like this before. I will take my family out for dinner this Friday. All you need to do is go down to a Western Union Agent and your family will receive the money the next day or in minutes. Western Union is one of the most convenient companies when it comes to sending money home.’
