IF YOU heard screams recently it may well have been Bethany Carter and her friends. Bethany is the lucky winner of four tickets to see British boy band One Direction at an exclusive concert in Sydney. According to Bethany's mum Helen, screams could be heard for two hours after the win was discovered.
The competition was run by Coles supermarket earlier in the year with 10,000 tickets up for grabs. Bethany has been a fan of One Direction for a couple of years and was keen to enter the competition and try her luck.
Helen said Bethany asked her for all her shopping receipts and then went online to enter the competition. But when Bethany received the email to say she had won her initial thought was that it was spam.
"She didn't believe she could have won," said Helen. Until the win had been verified Bethany refused to tell anyone.
But once it was confirmed the email was legitimate, 12-year-old Bethany (who turns 13 in two weeks time), was able to break the exciting news to her friends and offer three of them a ticket also.
Helen will transport the girls to Sydney this Sunday for the matinee concert.
"I'm glad it's a long weekend, it will be a big day," said Helen.
