Herfa Gayle from St Elizabeth is one step closer to finishing her house after winning $1,000,000 in Digicel's Brighten Someone's Christmas promotion.

Gayle, a creator of straw baskets and fans, has completed one room on her new house and is excited to start stacking blocks to finish another with the money that she has just won.

As a supportive mother, Gayle is also planning to brighten her 20-year-old daughter's life.

Gayle, who was accompanied by her daughter to collect her winning in Kingston last Wednesday, made no effort to hide her joy.

"I am so happy that I have won this because I am looking forward to finishing my home and I can also help my daughter Shawday begin her studies as a nurse ... next year."

After handing over the cheque, Annalise Harewood, Digicel's head of recharge, pointed to how easy it is to win $1 million.

"By simply topping up her prepaid phone, Herfa is today a millionaire and we are so excited for her. The promotion is now in its second week and already we've made two customers millionaires.

"So far, over 4,000 Digicel customers have won 4G data plans, 4G enabled handsets, and supermarket vouchers and we have many more winners to come over the coming weeks," said Harewood.

The Digicel executive noted that to enter the Brighten Someone's Christmas promotion, which ends next January, customers can top-up with $120 or more on their prepaid devices, pay their 4G broadband bills in full and on time, talk for 10 minutes on their post-paid devices or purchase a handset or other device.
