OFF TO THE SUN: Jim and Elaine Wright have scored a trip to Niue in a Fairfax competition.

Nelson Mail readers Jim and Elaine Wright have won a trip to Niue.

Every day this month Fairfax Media is giving away a trip for two to the tropical Pacific island with Mondo Travel, staying at the Matavai Resort.

The Wrights are the day two winners and are happy at the prospect of the trip they will take at the end of the year. Jim, a retired West Coast police officer, entered the draw.

"I thought it would be good to have a look at Niue," he said. "It looks an interesting place."

Elaine took the call yesterday morning that told them they had won.

"I thought it was quite exciting," she said.


They are looking forward to some outdoor activity, including biking around the island.

"It's an opportunity," Jim said.

The prize includes return airfares to Niue flying Air NZ, including domestic flights to Auckland Airport, with seven nights' accommodation staying at Matavai Resort.

Readers can enter daily using a different code word found each day in the Nelson Mail. Details p16.
