A family from Surrey are the lucky recipients of a De’Longhi Prima Donna coffee machine worth over £1000, after winning a competition organised by Pallant House Gallery and the Premium Italian coffee machine brand, De'Longhi, who have been Headline sponsors of the Gallery for five years running.
Their names were selected from over 700 entries which have been received over the past few months.
Nigel Wainwright, Commercial Director of De'Longhi for North and East Europe and Gregory Perry, Director of Pallant House Gallery, presented the prize to Emily and Ian Cunliffe and children Daisy and William during a special trip to the Gallery.
On hearing the news of her win Emily Cunliffe said: "How very unexpected, I am absolutely delighted. It means so much, as after visiting the gallery for the first time in the summer with my family, we became instant fans and vowed to make special trips to Chichester to visit the Gallery and restaurant."
"The whole experience was delightful, from the warm welcome at reception to the wonderful, eclectic pieces displayed in a very interesting building. Finished off by the most delicious meal in the sunny garden of the restaurant where the staff were happy to adapt the menu to suit two young children. Not forgetting the great shop where the children spent pocket money and we browsed through some interesting books and affordable art."
"This prize is the icing on the cake for us and our wonderful summer experience at the Pallant House Art Gallery! Thank you so very much - not only for the prize but for all your great work to make the gallery a very special place."
