Enamour's Lucky Shoes

Sometimes stories just like this make you smile…

While chatting to his dad, Dave, young Lachlan O’Neill, stated that he was a bit down on his luck.

Now Dave and his wife Elizabeth, who own shares in Bonita Bella, Enamour, The Champion One in Five Club and Mai Time, decided that their beloved young offspring needed a little help.

So ever the thinker, Dave, contacted us and asked for four used horseshoes that they could give to Lachlan to top up his “Luck Account”.

With plenty of shoes being removed and replaced each day, we provided Dave with the shoes. Two of which came from Dave and Elizabeth’s most recent starter in Enamour.

Dave presented young Lachlan with the four shoes and told him to place them with the open end upwards to keep the luck in. His parents aren’t quite sure where two of the shoes went but the other two have been strategically placed, one his bedroom door and the other holds pride of place above his Xbox.

Being only 11 years old, we hope that his sleep has significantly improved and if anyone is playing Fortnite or Pokemon on Xbox and gets destroyed or owned by a character named “Lachyfamcuz” please note that his Xbox is very lucky!
