Who wants to be a millionaire? We do!
When Camelot needed a volunteer to help promote the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle they phoned a friend, Alan Limb from BRI’s Southampton office. Alan lives on the Isle of Wight and his normal commute to work is via Red Funnel’s Red Jet service from Cowes. However, in order to publicise the Millionaire Raffle (which gave the winner a prize of £1m per month for twelve months), Camelot decided to show how a Millionaire would commute to the office, enjoying breakfast upon a Fairline Phantom 40ft motor yacht.
Camelot enlisted the help of the Isle of Wight Chamber of Commerce to suggest some Chamber members who could live the dream, if only for the morning. Alan was happy to accept the invitation, along with Rajinder Sangha, Gemma Cook and Marie Hamar from Glanvilles Solicitors. They all cruised in style across the Solent before stepping back onto dry land outside BRI’s office in Ocean Village, Southampton. Alan said, “It was a lovely experience to see how the other half live. I think I could get used to it! We were clearly convincing as Millionaires. When I stepped off the boat, somebody asked me how much I had won.”
