Branch Christmas Competition 2020 - Results

15th December 2020

Christmas TreeThe branch held our prize draw for our fantastic Christmas Competition and we're pleased to announce we now have our 5 prize winners and eight runners up for this year.

The prizes this year were:

  • an amazing Lenovo Legion 5 top-of-the-range Gaming Laptop.
  • a lovely Prosecco and Chocolates Hamper (x2)
  • a great Wine and Snacks box Hamper (x2)
  • and Eight runners up received £20 Vouchers!

Our prize winners draw was overseen by our Branch Chairperson, Julie Yackiminie on Tuesday and were:

  • First Prize:  Carol McKerron
  • Second Prizes:  Roy Glennie & Ruth Steele
  • Third Prizes:  Lauren Hossack & Iain Bell
  • Runners-up: Janice Wright, Rhona Skene, Joanne Procee, Scott Murison, David Milne, Alison Mcleod, Wendy Arthur, and Shirley McQeen

Our competition this year was an odd one out and people were asked to select the odd one out from A: Christmas Pudding, B: Chocolate Yule Log, C: Christmas Tree and D: Brussel Sprouts.

We know there are a number of ways you could look at it, but we were only looking for one right answer and that was "C: Christmas Tree" as the other things are all things you would eat (although we do admit some people would debate whether Brussel Sprouts are edible!).  Well done to everyone who got the answer we were looking for!

Congratulations to all our winners, and to everyone out there, have a Happy Christmas and New Year!

Free £20 Gift Voucher for Branch Members!

6th November 2020

£20 VoucherAs you know the branch receives money each year to use on a variety of things, including social events.  We'll be running our Christmas competition as usual, but we have also run coach trips and other events in the past.  This year, as you'll appreciate, we haven't been able to do that.

We know however how difficult this year has been for all of us, and the branch committee would like to say thank you to all our members for all the fantastic work you've been doing under very difficult circumstances.  For that reason we are offering all our branch members a £20 gift voucher of their choice!

To claim your gift voucher please register online - we'll then get them ordered and codes distributed to everyone which will allow you to claim your gift voucher from the many available at www.love2shoprewards.co.uk

All registrations should be received by Sunday 15th November 2020 to allow us time to process the order and get the codes out to you by early December - in time for a bit of Christmas shopping!
