NEWYou can now listen to Loop News articles!
The Caribbean has an all-new online home makeover show – Operation Home Transformation – launched by Loop News in partnership with COURTS. The new show features a lucky guest whose home is transformed thanks to a J$500,000 budget from the Caribbean’s largest furniture, appliance, and electrical retailer.
The first episode in the Jamaica series features Cecile Bowen from Clarendon, who entered the COURTS Operation Home Transformation competition on Loop News and was selected as the lucky winner to have her living room transformed by the expert team at COURTS led by interior designer Charlene Brevitt-Rose.
Hosted by Debbie Bissoon, the new online show tells the story of Cecile and her family and chronicles the incredible transformation of their home, which has been in the family for generations.
Cecile entered on behalf of her mother, Shirley, as a surprise and way to say thanks for all she has done for her and her siblings.
Reacting to the transformation, Cecile said:
“I was overjoyed; I had to stop myself from screaming when I got the news. I’m so happy to be able to do this for my mom, who raised us by herself since my father was killed 17 years ago. It’s a blessing for our family, and I’m so grateful.”
Loop News readers who would like to be considered for COURTS Operation Home Transformation’s next episode should keep an eye on the app for updates and opportunities to enter. More details will be shared in the coming weeks.
