Deep Blue has announced the winner of its Florida holiday competition, launched to celebrate the opening of a number of new shops by the chain in Yorkshire.
Stephen Bell and his family were the lucky recipients, having entered the competition at the Wetwang Deep Blue shop. Locals were asked to vote for what makes them most proud to be from Yorkshire, with the winning vote going to Yorkshire Puddings! The Bells are excited to visit Disney World especially as they have never had a holiday outside the UK as a family before.
It’s the second holiday to Florida the chip shop chain has given away, having earlier in the year donated the trip of a lifetime to 11-year-old Jessie Wade-Rathbone from Luddendenfoot who has cerebral palsy.
James Low, founder of Deep Blue, is committed to building strong community links in Yorkshire and sees this as the first initiative of many in an attempt to delight the local community. He comments: “We want to wish a huge congratulations to Stephen. We are delighted to be able to send him and his family to Disney World and truly hope they enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.
“Fish and chips is a classic national dish and as such, chip shops are an important part of the high street, so we want to make sure that Deep Blue plays a positive and active role in the Yorkshire community.”
