    A few months ago I entered a competition with a local radio station to win a trip to Disneyland Paris. It's all expenses paid at Newport Bay for 2 nights, and there's a money can't buy party with Sophia and Jake on the Saturday evening. It was for 2 adults and 2 kids under 9. It was for 13th-15th September.

    Guess, what? I won!!!!!

    Now here's, the 'but'. We can't go!!!! I've just found out my grandparents are having a diamond wedding anniversary part on the Saturday. We can transfer the prize to someone else, but it's such a shame we can't make it. Not sure yet how to transfer it, as I'm waiting for a reply to the email to tell me I've won. Ah well :-(

    Oh Vikki what a shame I would explain the situation to them they might let you change the dates. It's got to be worth asking :yes;

    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    I will ask that when they get back to me, but I think it was a special competition run with 20 other local radio stations. The evening party is just for the winners. It won't hurt to ask them, but I'm not holding out much hope.

    Now you come to mention it, I think our local Heart Radio was running something similar. Hope they can sort something out for you.

    I honestly don't think they will as the form said the trip Must be taken between the 13-15th September. Of course, I'm guessing their offices are closed today with it being Sunday but I might hear something tomorrow.

    That is a real shame. Congrats on the win though. It has happened to me too. I won a trip to the Bahamas and couldnt take it as it was in term time. I hope you manage to sort something out.

    Hmm.... Now, if I were your Grandma I would insist that you went on the trip. Those chances don't come along very often.
