This Christmas season, telecommunications company Digicel is taking the anxiety out of the grocery shopping experience with its 'Brighten Someone's Christmas' promotion.

In the promotion, 100 customers have been winning Hi-lo supermarket shopping vouchers valued at $10,000 each per week. Four weeks into the eight-week promotion, Digicel has already awarded 400 customers with Hi-lo supermarket vouchers.

Cyrstal Forte, a lucky recipient, is thankful for her prize and finds it timely. The proud mother of a one-year-old daughter, said: "The prize came just in time because I was able to get some food items for myself and baby products for my daughter just before payday. I am grateful for this prize and I would like to thank Digicel for giving back to customers."

Another winner, Stephen Chambers, 22, is saving his prize to buy groceries for his Christmas family dinner. "I am definitely getting a ham this Christmas and ingredients to bake a Christmas cake for my family. This prize is appreciated because it will help me with buying some of the items on my shopping list," he said.

Commenting on the promotion Annalise Harewood, Digicel's head of recharge, said: "This Yuletide is all about giving back for us at Digicel, and we are happy to help our customers with their Christmas grocery shopping. We are also happy to have Hi-lo on board to help brighten the Christmas for so many of our customers."

Omar Barrientos, CEO of Hi-lo Food Stores, is also happy for the partnership with Digicel. He said: "Hi-Lo is delighted to partner with Digicel in giving value to customers. We have a wide selection of items available for the winners to purchase that will fulfil their needs during this festive season"

The Digicel Brighten Someone's Christmas promotion is scheduled to end on January 9. At that time, another 400 customers will win Hi-lo supermarket vouchers in time for the New Year.
