Resort nurse treated to VIP day out in city
A SOUTHPORT nurse felt like a film star when she was treated to a day out in Liverpool.
Margaret Rimington, 61, entered a competition to win a VIP experience at the city’s award-winning retail and leisure destination - Liverpool One.
Margaret, who has worked as a nurse in Southport for more than 25 years, was picked up in a Rolls Royce and arrived in Liverpool to a red carpet and champagne reception at the Hilton Hotel.
After entering the competition, run by Smooth Radio, Margaret was thrilled to win a personal shopping experience at the John Lewis store in Liverpool One, where she found the perfect outfit for her Christmas night out!
That was followed with a makeover at Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar, and a new hairstyle from Electric Lounge. Margaret, and her friend Elaine Bamsey, who joined her on the visit to Liverpool, then enjoyed a three-course lunch at the Hilton.
Margaret said: “My favourite part of the day was definitely stepping out of the car and there were lots of cameras all taking pictures of me as I arrived, I felt like a film star!”
She added: “It was a spectacular day, I never thought I’d ever win something like this. There are some really great stores at Liverpool One – I will most definitely be returning.”
Donna Howitt, marketing director at Liverpool ONE, said: “We were absolutely delighted that we could be on hand to look after this very deserving lady.
“We are so pleased that she and her friend had such a fantastic time shopping with us and enjoyed being spoilt by all of the stores and staff.”
