Leeds lorry driver Roger Rushfirth showed he was top of the shops as he tackled a madcap trolley dash around a city supermarket.
Roger, 65, from Bramley, won the free three-minute dash at Moor Allerton’s Netto Leeds store in a Yorkshire Evening Post competition.
He ensured he got full value from the experience, shovelling items worth a total of £709.38 into his trolley as he raced up and down the aisles yesterday morning.
And afterwards even a cursory glance at the goods he collected made it clear what had been at the top of his special shopping list.
Roger said: “I didn’t want tins of beans and vegetables and that kind of thing, so instead I got wine and champagne and about 60 cans of lager!
“We have family get-togethers so I’ll definitely be taking some bottles along to those.
“The staff at the store were great, they pointed out where things were beforehand, which was a massive help.
“I’ve never done anything like this previously and I really enjoyed myself – although I’m glad it wasn’t me paying for it all!”
Netto Leeds shop manager Dave Charlton told the YEP: “I thought Roger did fantastically – I think [the value of the goods] could actually be a record because I know we have done it in other stores.
“I think his strategy was perfect and hopefully I might get an invite to a party!”
Readers were asked to collect tokens from the YEP to gain entry to the trolley dash competition.
