It was a week to remember for primary teacher Laura Swanson after she scooped the top prize in Forth 1’s “Pay Your Bills” radio competition.
Laura, from Bonnyrigg, received a very welcome early birthday present when Forth 1 breakfast presenter Boogie rang her up to let her know she was the lucky £10,000 winner of the station’s first big competition of 2015.
The good times kept rolling when drive time presenter Mark Martin travelled to Laura’s classroom in Loanhead to present the cheque and help celebrate her win, just before the P6 teacher’s half-term break began.
Travelling Europe is top of the wish list for Laura and she plans to whisk her mum off on a girly trip to Dublin this Easter.
The travels won’t stop there for the Paradykes Primary teacher who is also organising a holiday to Florence following her windfall.
