The Alphatec customer prize draw was arranged to celebrate our 25th business anniversary.
We wanted to thank our customers for their loyalty, and at Alphatec, we believe that if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing well. So, we didn’t scrimp on the prize and offered tickets to major sporting events e.g., Formula 1, Wimbledon etc.
An email giving every Alphatec ‘software user’ the opportunity to register to win, was sent every month from October to January. The closing date for entries was 27th January 2022 and the winner drawn at random the following day. As an added bonus we also donated £1 to charity for every person who entered and were able to make a donation to the Northants branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
Who was the lucky winner of the customer prize draw?
Sandra Hornby, Insurance Officer at Vinci Construction was the lucky winner and we notified her straight away. Her initial response was pure shock.
“I know it’s a cliché, but I’ve never won anything before, thanks to everyone at Alphatec & congrats on the 25 years.”
We asked Sandra which prize she would like us to source, and being an avid tennis fan it had to be Wimbledon!
Wimbledon 2022 tickets
Thankfully we have been able to secure Wimbledon 2022 tickets – phew. It was a bit touch and go at one stage as tickets are in very high demand, but we have sourced an amazing hospitality package for Sandra which includes,
- Hospitality within The Treehouse on the lawn, situated above The Lawn, and with its own exclusive balcony
- Complimentary bar available throughout the day to include cocktails, specially chosen wines, champagne and more
- Roaming small plates from 2 Michelin Star chef
- Reserved no. 1 court match tickets for the 2nd Tuesday which is the quarter finals
- Informal afternoon tea
- Live DJ throughout the day
This is what Sandra said when we confirmed everything….
“That’s absolutely amazing!! Wow Wow Wow! This looks so gorgeous & just 2 days before my 52nd birthday, it’s going to be fantastic. With my Crowded House tickets, the week before & this amazing day it’s like my Covid 50th disaster birthday never happened.
Hmmm now which one of my lucky friends do I take?”
Can you still get tickets for Wimbledon 2022?
There are very few opportunities to obtain tickets for Wimbledon 2022 now, but one option still available is to queue. There are approximately 1500 tickets available daily if you queue. The queue is in the middle of Wimbledon Park and people arrive the day or night before, with tent, sleeping bag etc. in the hope that they will be lucky enough to get tickets for the following day. The Honorary Stewards wake you up at 6am and with luck you will be issued with a wrist band for centre court, court no. 1, or no. 2. Further information on how the queuing works can be obtained here
One of the Directors at Alphatec, Brian Boyce regularly queues, and camps overnight and once Sandra realised this she said,
“I might wave to you Brian, in your tent as I swan past?”
Thank you to everyone who entered. We are very happy to be able to offer this customer loyalty prize draw and very happy to be able to present the winner, with such an amazing prize. We realise that our long-term success would not be possible without our customers, and we wish Sandra an amazing day.
