Shopping centre flying high after a £600 prize fund giveaway attracted hundreds of shoppers during mid-term break
a sun tan may not be your first thought when it comes to February half term,
but one Ashton-Under-Lyne shopping centre gave shoppers the chance jet off as
part of a huge prize giveaway.
Shopping Centre transformed four of its retailers into popular travel
destinations for its Wanderlust event, which even saw staff dress the part too.
shoppers didn’t need their passport to participate, an air stewardess was on
hand checking customers’ unique boarding cards which they could pick up from Holland
and Barret (Hawaii), Cardzone (France), Max Spielmann (Mexico) and Millie’s
were then informed on the spot as to whether they were a lucky winner of one of
the gifts in the £600 prize pot.
Mellor, winner of a £100 Hays Travel voucher, said: “I just couldn’t believe my
luck when it flashed up on the iPad that I’d won.
loved that you found out there and then, it really encouraged me to head down
to the centre and enter.
staff all looked great and I’d like to thank
Ladysmith for putting on another great event. I will certainly be keeping my
eye out for the next one being announced.”
prizes up for grabs included £25 voucher for Netflix, 2 £50 perfume sets and family
day out vouchers to Cineworld to name but a few.
