Disneyland Paris awaits March family which won our Cooperative Travel Holiday Competition
YOUNG mum Tina Varney hoped to save up and take her two children to Disneyland Paris next year. But the 22-year-old scooped the first prize in our holiday photograph competition and will soon be packing the family suitcases ready for a fabulous half-term break there.
The trip, worth more than �1,200, was offered through the Cambs Times/Wisbech Standard by Co-operative Travel based in the Westgate department store in March, in association with Leger Holidays and Disneyland Paris.
They combined to offer a wonderful three-night, four-day trip staying at the four-star Magic Circus Hotel.
Tina, of Harvester Close, March, sent in a photograph of her two children, Leah and Ollie Connolly, on the beach at Mablethorpe. Readers readers voted it the holiday snap of the year.
Tina said: “I was going to try and save up so we could go next year. I went when I was younger and had always wanted to take my own children while they are at the right kind of age. Leah is already excited and Ollie loves Toy Story.

“When they told me I had won I said ‘are you being serious’. I telephoned my mum and just started screaming down the phone.”
Tina’s mum, Susan Varney of Guyhirn, will be accompanying her daughter and grandchildren, aged four and two, on the trip.

Ashley Dellow of Leger Holidays said: “I am really pleased for Tina and her family. It will be Halloween at Disneyland and I am sure they will have a great time.”
