Campden Park resident wins Courts Sleepathon


While most persons wake up to go to work so that they can get paid, Monique Lampkin got into bed and got paid for going to sleep.

Lampkin was the winner of the Courts St Vincent Sleepathon competition, after staying in bed and asleep longer than five other competitors last Friday morning, in the newly furnished Courts Sleep Centre at the Kingstown showroom.{{more}}

The Campden Park resident outlasted Jerimiah Mckie, who placed second, and third placed Mark Roache, as well as Hannah Felix, Lenox Browne and Olivia Lanferman.

Mckie received an Alactel Phablet, while Roache earned himself an Alcatel Pixie Tablet for his effort.

All contestants received Courts vouchers.

With the help of local comedian Shevrell “Candyman” McMillan, the competitors were tormented during their morning siesta, with various distractions aimed at getting them out of bed.

They were subjected to popping balloons, clanging pot covers, ringing bells, food and water, all in an attempt to disrupt their morning rest.

One by one the sleeping beauties were roused by the disturbances, until it was only Lampkin left. She was happy to receive the funds and thanked Courts for the opportunity to win the much needed cash.

The in-store event was a part of Courts’ launch of the new sleep centre, where customers may choose from a wide assortment of mattresses, frames and bedding accessories to suit their sleeping needs.
