Virgin Holiday is a travel company with Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Australia Airlines. All three companies are owned by philanthropist Richard Branson. Therefore, it only makes sense that Virgin Holidays has fantastic freebies. In the company's latest donation, it offered a free flight to St. Lucia to a legally named resident in the UK called Lucy or Lucia.
The cause of the competition
This exciting competition was launched in honor of International Women's Day. Believe it or not, St. Lucia is the only country in the world named after a woman. St. Lucia is also famous for female chefs!
In the tropical nation, the number of female chefs in all sectors correlates closely with the number of women in the population. In other words, the number of women in leadership positions is similar to the number of women in the country. As far as employment practice is concerned, it seems that the people of St. Lucia believe that women are as capable as men.
Rules of engagement
To win, a woman would have to be called either Lucy or Lucia and she would have to live in the UK. To ensure that everyone plays fair, Virgin Holidays has also stated that the winners must include their names with Lucy or Lucia in their passports.
The competition was not a guaranteed victory for Lucys. There was a draw between the participants, and the winners will be notified shortly. The winners will receive a free flight to and from St. Lucia.
Lucys is having fun
To begin the # Lucysinstlucia celebrations, Virgin Holidays sent three of her own employees named Lucy (Lucy Hudson, Lucy McManus and Lucy Messina) to St. Lucian travel of a life.
Although the deadline for participation in the competition is suspended, we keep the overview Virgin Holidays Instagram page to see all the fun of the winners.
