Three Courier readers enjoyed a cracking start to the week by scooping £500 in our new Code competition.
Every copy of The Courier printed on Saturday contained a unique code in its magazine.
All readers have to do to win £500 is check if their code from Saturday matches one of the 20 random codes printed in Monday’s and Tuesday’s papers.
Violet Abbie, from Fife, was the first person to match the code and secure £500.
The 88-year-old, from Centenary Court, in Leven said: “I can’t believe it, I’ve never won anything before in my life.”
Violet said that she and her husband Bill, 90, are going to share their winnings with their daughter Joyce.
“She is really good to us,” said Violet.
“I’m quite excited. I thought that if there was more than one winner we would just get a share of the £500.”
John Killan, from Friockheim, was the next person to land £500.
His partner Patricia Wilkinson said: “John saw the numbers in the paper and we had kept the magazine because of the TV guide so were able to go back and check.”
Norma Fulton, from Kinross, was our third winner and said she would split the money between Rachel House, where she volunteers, and motor-neurone disease charity MND Scotland.
The Courier Code competition has been made possible thanks to new technology installed on DC Thomson and Co Ltd’s printing presses.
The digital head allows unique content – such as an individual code – on each copy of the paper without having to stop the press.
There’s still time to claim your prize if you bought Saturday’s Courier and have one of the lucky copies. See Tuesday’s paper for the unclaimed codes.
