The annual Western Union end-of-year raffle draw recently came to conclusion after a live draw on the Sierra Leone Broadcating Corporation television, under the auspices of the Union Trust Bank, FIBank, Skype Bank, Access Bank, Zenith Bank and EcoBank – all agents of Western Union Money Transfer.
The raffle draw climaxed the end-of-year promotion in which Western Union affords their numerous customers dozens of prizes, to encourage them to wire money to and receive money from their relatives, friends and loved ones abroad or within the country.
The premium bonanza offered US$200 worth of supermarket goods to twenty-five winners in a one-minute shopping spree, while hundred customers won the US$50 shopping voucher by sending and receiving money.
During the shopping spree exercise at the Freetown Supermarket, many customers who took home various item thanked Western Union for organising the draw and hoped for a similar bonanza during Easter.
