LABASA'S oldest barber Thakor Bhai Maisuria could not believe his luck when he was announced the winner of The Fiji Times Spot The Ball promotions last week.

On Monday, the 60-year-old Namara resident was all smiles after receiving the major prize from the Motibhai Group of Companies.

Mr Maisuria won a 40-inch Sony Bravia LCD flat screen and a Sony home theatre system.

"I made it my business to buy The Fiji Times newspaper every day and take part in the promotion," he said.

"The promotion went on for five weeks and every day, I usually visit the newspaper office to drop my entries. I had high hopes of winning and when my name was published in the newspaper, I was really overjoyed.

"I would like to thank The Fiji Times, Prouds, JR White, Digicel and Shop and Save for this winning opportunity."
