Cathy Todd, our software support technician from Huddersfield, was delighted to win a diamond necklace when she stayed at the Jurys Inn hotel in Southampton. She was in Southampton to attend our Christmas work party.
This year Blue Rock Systems went out for an afternoon involving excellent food and later dancing – some even made it through to the early hours of the morning. When Cathy returned to her room after the night, she did not pay any attention to a cardboard star which had been left on her bed.
“I just thought it was a satisfaction survey thing” said Cathy, not thinking much of it. As she was checking out, the hotel staff asked her if she’d found anything in her room. They then revealed that the necklace was a gift for her, as the Jury’s Inn was celebrating its 20th anniversary, and by chance she had booked in to stay in the room that the necklace was hidden in.
The handcrafted diamond is set in an 18K white gold pendant and is worth £750. It was supplied by The Diamond Store and hidden in Southampton’s Jurys Inn, chosen at random from their 25 UK hotels. They released a press release and tweeted about the gift that was in store for one lucky visitor.
Cathy was very pleased to receive the beautiful necklace just before she returned home.
