Valentine Vault winner proposes on stage!

Simon Forrester and Tereza Vannucci from Anlaby, Hull had an a truly unforgettable Valentine’s Day when Simon won a £5750 solitaire diamond ring in the Valentine Vault competition presented as a partnership between two eskimosoup clients; Hugh Rice Jewellers and St Stephen’s Shopping Centre.

When Simon opened the safe with the wining combination code, he couldn’t believe his luck. But Simon didn’t hesitate in inviting his long-term partner onto the stage to propose to her with the special ring!

Simon and Tereza have been together for 12 years and have three children. They have wanted to tie the knot for years but the expenses of everyday living have got in the way. Simon said: “I’ve never won anything in my life, so to win such a massive prize is fantastic. It’s even more special now that Tereza has agreed to be my wife. The ring looks absolutely stunning.”

Tereza was over the moon and is already thinking about planning the wedding. Tereza said: “We had planned a weekend away for our birthdays so I went along to St Stephen’s to buy a new outfit. I saw the Valentine Vault and entered the competition. It’s a fantastic story to tell the kids when they’re older about how Mum and Dad got married. I’d anticipated the proposal for quite some time, but I didn’t expect Simon to ask me on stage in St Stephen’s!”

The competition which offered an unprecedented prize in this region attracted more than 3000 entries.

Jim Harris, Centre Manager at St Stephen’s said: “The Valentine Vault competition was a once in a lifetime opportunity to win a £5000 solitaire diamond ring on Valentine’s Day. We’re delighted that Simon and Tereza received the incredible fine diamond solitaire ring from one of the region’s diamond experts. It makes a fabulous engagement ring!”

Mike Rice, Managing Director of Hugh Rice Jewellers said: “This prize really is something special – we selected one of our best diamonds to give away! As the region’s leading jeweller we always want to make Valentine’s Day extra special but it will be totally unforgettable for Simon and Tereza this year”.

eskimosoup will be working with St Stephen’s and Hugh Rice Jewellers on an ongoing basis, though the outcome of this successful campaign is going to take some beating!
