WOW, WHAT A DAY! My day got underway at around 6:30am with a trip to the home of the owners of Sandles Car Supermarket for a flight in their helicopter with KLFM's very own Super Trooper to the car lot for KLFM's 'Lights on, Lights off'. By 11am around 150 people had arrived in Pott Row to win a car worth £5000 and I had the job of giving it away. After 6 rounds of questions we eventually found a winner, Rowan Thaxton aged 13, who made his parents' day by collecting the keys to their new family car!
My jet set day continued with a trip back towards King's Lynn to collect my little boy for a massive suprise, I was taking him to Upton Park to watch West Ham play Derby in the Championship. It was a very long, energetic rush with the logistics of driving to the helicopter, being the man on the radio giving away a car, collecting my car and getting to London with 23,000 other people in time for the game but completely worth it just to see how excited he was about going to see the 'Hammers with Dad while my wife and daughter went 'boring' Christmas shopping.
Big thanks to Paul, everyone at Sandles, KLFM's Super Trooper and West Ham for getting 3 points and making an amazing day even greater!
It was about 10pm when I got home, completly shattered but I'd had an amazing day!
