OFM has started to fulfil its goal of turning 2022 into #Twenty20You, by awarding  another lucky listener with a significant prize. 30 March 2022 saw an end to the OFM’s Real Good Travel Book Competition, held in collaboration with Hinterland and Hinterland Fuels.  Mari le Roux walked away with the grand prize of R15 000 and ten lucky listeners each received Hinterland vouchers worth R1 000, just for signing up.

The 33-year-old Le Rouw from Hartbeesfontein in the North West, was surprised by the OFM team at her workplace in Klerksdorp with a huge cheque for R15 000. Le Roux explained her entry was about De KrantzHuis in Niewoudtville in the Northern Cape. “It is a house built on a cliff. I think it’s the only place in South Africa where you feel like you are waking up on clouds. And the sunset is incredible,” Le Roux explained.

She said the prize money will come handy when she and her loved one depart on their next travel adventure in two weeks. “We try to explore South Africa, rather than travel abroad,” she concluded.

Managing director of Hinterland Fuels, Derik Wolmarans, said at the prize-giving ceremony that it is important for them to get involved because their customers are in Central South Africa. “And it’s always nice to give back. We can’t actually believe that the winner came from Klerksdorp. It was a big surprise for us,” Wolmarans said.

The Real Good Travel Book, a summary of must-do travel experiences in the Free State, Northern Cape, North West and the Vaal Triangle, will soon be available digitally for free download. Copies of the book will also be sent to each entrant whose contribution has been placed in the book. Copies will also be made available as giveaway items on OFM.

Stay tuned to OFM for more chances to win big. There is still a chance to enter the #OFMFanWall Competition where R20 000 cash is up for grabs for one lucky winner.
