Everyone must have a go at winning iPad!

NEVER say never is the message from our latest lucky iPad winner.
Stephanie Pearson, 54, managed to pick up the brand new third generation Apple iPad for 70p, after she held the lowest unique bid in The Cumberland News’ reverse auction.
She had bid “two or three times” for the technology, but admitted she does not enter many competitions.
“I don’t tend to be very lucky,” said Stephanie, of Station Hill, Wigton. “But I really wanted an iPad and I’ve entered the last two or three competitions.
“Last time I actually had a unique bid, but it wasn’t the lowest, so I fancied my chances and had a go.
“If you don’t try, you’ll never win so I’d say everyone should have a go.”
She added: “I’m really happy.”
Stephanie, who works in a butcher’s shop in Carlisle, is unsure whether she will be able to keep it though, or whether it will be ‘claimed’ by her son.
Although not successful in the reverse auction, David Wilson, of Thomas Street, in Denton Holme, Carlisle, and Cath Slack, from Ireby, were randomly selected to win £50 cash each.
