When Digicel representatives arrived at Bridget Dundas’ home, she was at work but her 18-year-old son Carl McKenzie and some of his siblings were totally shocked and surprised. When contacted by phone, Dundas was very thankful, according to Digicel.

The company also said that as part of its anniversary celebrations, customers would enjoy seven days of prizes and surprises starting today and ending next Thursday. Customers are encouraged to keep their phones on  and to  tune in to Digicel Morning Vibes on 100.1 Fresh FM from am to 9 am (Monday to Friday) to see if they are lucky winners of ‘FREEBIES.’  Seven lucky customers can win an identical Smartphone purchased for their Valentine in its anniversary phone sale.
