The Grape Vine Winners List - September

Former readers of Grape Vine will know that every month, a list of wins worth £500 or more that readers had told me about appeared in the magazine, usually on the front cover. Many readers said they loved to see the lists of wins, and it inspired them to try harder. In fact several said that when a biggie DID arrive, their first thought was "Front page of Grape Vine"!

But it wasn't just there for inspiration - at the end of every year, each entry on the list went into a draw to win 100 second class stamps and a 6 month subscription to Grape Vine. Now Grape Vine is no longer published, the sub has been replaced with a cheque for £25.

Now that Grape Vine has merged with Compers News, I can't carry on publishing the list on the front cover, but as I've already announced that the closing date for this year's competition is December 31st, I'm publishing the monthly lists here instead. These are the wins I've been told about during September.  Congratulations to all of you!

Freda Emery               £500 of Nectar points – Sainsburys

Sheila Brady               2 night Dorset break – Holland & Barrett healthy mag

Sheila Brady               2 night hotel break – Sunday Times

Kieran Walsh              Holiday to Orlando – The Daily Express

Liz Jones                     Year’s gym membership – Ryman/Duracell
Don't forget to keep on letting me know about your wins - Grape Vine may be gone in the format we knew it, but the list lives on! Until December 31st the list is only open to people who were current Grape Vine subscribers as at August 31st 2013, but if enough of you are interested, I may continue this and make it open to EVERYBODY in 2014.
What do you think? Would you be proud to see your wins listed here? Would reading about other people's wins spur you on to try hard to join the list yourself?
