To honour the 45-year Australian heritage of our delicious Pink Lady®apples, at the end of 2019 we offered one lucky Pink Lady® fan the chance to win a seven-day holiday to Australia, including a trip to one of our beautiful Pink Lady® orchards. We are excited to announce the lucky winner of this amazing giveaway!

The competition ran exclusively in partnership with M&S, with customers who purchased a four-pack of Pink Lady® apples able to enter the competition with a unique code.

Pink Lady® apple lover, Jonathan Gray, embarked upon his weekly shop and, as usual, put a four-pack of Pink Lady® apples into his trolley. After arriving home from M&S, he noticed the competition sticker on-pack and decided to give it a go and enter. After all, you have to be in it to win it!

Stunned to receive the call announcing his win some weeks later, Jonathan says it wasn’t until travel arrangements were made that it really hit home that he had been chosen to go on a trip of a lifetime.

“I’ve never had the opportunity to visit Australia before, so I’m thrilled to have been picked as the winner of the competition. I am really looking forward to discovering the sights with my son, Edward. My wife, Faye, spent a year working and travelling Australia when she was younger, so the tales of her trip has made me even more excited to go! I am most looking forward to seeing the contrast between the natural beauty of the country and the cosmopolitan city life of Melbourne. Not to mention the trip to the Pink Lady®orchard!”

The week-long adventure will take place this coming autumn, which will mark the start of Australian springtime. Their trip will include a stay in 4-star accommodation and the family will also receive £500 spending money to help them enjoy their Aussie experience.

From the whole team at Pink Lady® apples, we’d like to give Jonathan a big congrats. We can’t wait to hear all about your trip!
