Grannies love a bit of gift giving. China dolls, plates with pictures of dogs on them — all the usual suspects. But wouldn’t it be ace if your Nan turned up with an exotic holiday and a DVD player all packed in her tartan shopping trolley ready to dish out for free?
Fab grandmother of three, Christine Wilkinson from Crowborough, East Sussex, has been treating her lucky family to some awesome gifts for the last 25 years. Her secret? The brilliant hobby of ‘comping’, which is entering competitions. The 64 year old enters around 600 competitions each month online and says she has won just about everything apart from a house or a car.
“You name it I’ve won it,” she says before reeling off an impressive list of prizes including three washing machines, two dishwashers, holidays, a trip on the Orient Express, jewellery, clothes and vouchers. Even a brand new kitchen, which was the prize that got her “hooked” on winning.
Christine got the comping bug after having to give up work through illness.

“It started off as a small hobby and once I started winning things it just exploded,” she explains. “I’d recommend anybody trying it. It does become addictive though I have to warn you!”
The prize-hunting grandma has her sights set on winning some premium booty this year. With her daughter in New Zealand expecting another grandchild, she’s keen to win a trip to see the new arrival due in June. Back home she’d like to replace her “really old TV” and get a garden makeover to make life easier.
