A lucky office worker has become the envy of all her colleagues after winning a highly sought-after Apple iPad.

Kate Merrifield, PA to the Chairman and Chief Executive of the Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust, scooped the top prize as part of Mitsubishi Pencil Co.'s attendance at office*.

Attracting big crowds to the fresh new event, the leading stationery firm asked visitors to throw their name into the ringmaster's top hat to win a great range of prizes. The promotion formed part of Mitsubishi's campaign to bring the office circus to life to celebrate the arrival of its Jetstream 101 writing instrument.

Kate said on hearing the news: “I’m over the moon to have won. I never expected to win such a great prize. It was great to be part of the office circus and I'm sure I'll put my iPad and Jetstream 101 to good use."

Presenting Kate with her prize was Stuart Barker, marketing manager at Mitsubishi Pencil Co. Stuart said: “office* had a great atmosphere and proved the ideal platform for us to promote our range of writing instruments. The show presented us with a fantastic opportunity to connect with office workers face to face and we will definitely consider returning next year."

Runners-up from the competition included Elinor Rowley, office manager at London’s Hyper Happen, who claimed a premier office lunch and Nicola Mardon, office manager at RBS Group, who collected a uni-ball professional gift pack.
