The 41-year-old from Harlow works at a production manager the leading sign, poster and banner maker in Chelmsford. He won the prize after landing the top prize in a draw at a trade show in Birmingham.
And after celebrating his wedding anniversary last month he is planning to treat his wife Diane to a top of the range break.
The father of three explained: “We went to The Sign Expo event at the NEC in Birmingham which is one of the biggest exhibitions in the country for the printing trade. It is great chance for us to take a look at what is going on in the sign and display trade.
“You get to see the latest products, lines and technology in the trade and it is a great place to meet new people, share information and make contacts.
“While I was at the exhibition we visited the Antalis stand. The company supplies materials for large format printing which is something we are involved in and we are always keen to keep abreast of the latest developments.
“I entered my name in their free prize draw and was delighted when they got in touch with me a few weeks later to tell me I had won the top prize. I was thrilled and never expected to win.”
Brad and Diane celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary in June.
He said: “I have got a year to spend the vouchers and we can do anything we want to do with them, there are no restrictions.
“It would be nice to do something special to celebrate our anniversary and we will probably go for a weekend break in a nice hotel for the weekend.”
