Last week, with a free family pass to see the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ this Friday at the Dublin Horse Show on offer, we asked you:
Why you would deserve such a prize?
‘Neighbour from Heaven’ won the pass with this desperate plea:
“Not wishing to be pushy,but I deserve the family ticket as my landlord has decided to sell up. The wife and our two kids have been lucky to find a new place to reside but the rent increases by €300 a month. We both work full time and any savings are now going to be lost on rent. She’s horse mad. Please give her something nice. Please :(“
