Hull eco company’s 25th anniversary competition winner celebrates birthday with prize

Mr and Mrs Metcalfe toast their success in anniversary competitionThe lucky winner of Sutton Fields-based business The Bio-D Company’s competition was able to celebrate her birthday in style after winning the top prize.

The Bio-D Company, an ethical cleaning and laundry products manufacturer, teamed up with The Ramblers’ Rest in Millington to offer a two nights’ stay for the winner of its 25th anniversary competition

Alison Metcalfe and husband Kevin from Hull were picked at random after Mrs Metcalfe entered the competition ‘by chance’, and researched the company online to find the correct answer to the question ‘In what year was Bio-D founded?’

The full-time carer said: “It was really nice to stay at The Ramblers’ Rest following my 58th birthday and we were well looked after by Angela and Jeremy Sissons.

“I couldn’t fault them – Angela really was the host with the most and a highlight was the lovely evening meal by an open fire she’d set up for us. I’d like to thank Bio-D and The Ramblers’ Rest for a lovely time.”

Mr and Mrs Metcalfe visited Millington Woods and neighbouring Yorkshire Wolds villages, as well as spending time in Naburn and the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet in York.

Mrs Metcalfe is now considering recommending the company’s products for her sister-in-law’s cleaning company.
