One of our recent winners, Carla Seathe had a great day out with her son Ronnie who is  a huge Pompey fan: “Ronnie and I had such a great day. It’s wonderful to be given opportunities at work to be able to enter competitions to win tickets to see our home team play. Ronnie was thrilled to get the chance to speak to Kenny and the Pompey Players, who were happy to take photos and answer questions – such lovely guys. A great day had by all, thank you.”
