Facebook Used To Find Taunton Staff Nurse Wins Top £300 Bridal Hair Prize in National Draw

A nurse from Taunton, Somerset couldn't believe that she had won the top prize worth £300 in a national wedding show prize draw.  In fact, she nearly missed out on it, because her laptop was broken and she didn't see the email that advised of her good luck.

Ilminster, Somerset, 15 November 2010
- The purpose of the prize draw was to promote and celebrate |Bridal Hair by Helen's first showing at the UK's premier wedding event.  Attended by over 17,000 visitors over three days, the London show was a complete success, with over 750 entries to the draw.

Rebecca Craig, a staff nurse from Taunton, was doubtful at first, "When I actually got to read the email telling me I'd won, I thought it was a hoax.  I never imagined that I would be the winner of a national prize draw," said Rebecca "because my laptop was out of action, it was only after the organisers had managed to trace me via Facebook, and then contact me through my fiancé's Facebook account, that I believed it," she explains, "I'm now so excited to be getting my wedding day hair professionally styled for free!" 

Helen Tozer, top Somerset bridal hair stylist, launched the prize draw at The National Wedding Show, Earls Court in London this October.

According to Helen, "The National Wedding Show is full of excitement, fun and glamour and I recommend that all brides pay it a visit, if they possibly can."  Commenting on Rebecca's win, Helen said, "I am absolutely delighted that Rebecca has won the top prize and really looking forward to styling her hair on her wedding day." 

Rebecca's wedding is to be held at Ilfracombe, Devon in May, 2011.
