What a year of competitions we’ve had! We have another four lucky winners to congratulate today…
Let’s start with Jenny Colgan, not only did she share her recipes for Mulled wine pear upside-down cake and Nutmeg sugar cookies with you she also gave you the chance to win a bracelet from Tiffany & Co – the perfect Christmas present! To win this amazing prize all you had to do was tell us about the worst Christmas gift you were ever given and there were some terrible ones in there! But Alice Murphy won hands down – she once received a grey self-adhesive noticeboard that didn’t even work! Well this year you’ll have some glamorous wrist bling to brighten up your Christmas!
Next we had Carole Matthews pay us a visit, to celebrate the publication of her wonderfully seasonal novel With Love at Christmas, and we gave you the chance to win £500 of Tesco vouchers! And what a response we had, understandably – think of all the great things you could buy with £500 Tesco vouchers! We asked you where you would like to spend Christmas, some of you just wanted to be at home in front of the fire and others wanted to head for the Big Apple and go ice-skating in Central Park. Lesley MacLellan we hope you have the Christmas you’re wishing for – and enjoy spending your Tesco vouchers!
Author of From Notting Hill to New York . . . Actually, Ali McNamara wanted to give one of our lucky readers the chance to win a VIP shopping weekend in London! She simply wanted to know where you want to go on a trip of a lifetime and why… So many of you wanted to head down under to Australia and New Zealand, other wanted to travel the United States from East to West and North to South, others wanted to discover the hidden treasures of India and experience the vibrant life style of Hong Kong. But our winner Diane Mooney wants to go to Bora Bora – after watching the movie Couples Retreat and taking a look outside at the cold weather we have here in the UK she decided a trip to the island to soak up some sun is exactly what she needs. Well Diane, how about a VIP shopping trip in London instead? Have fun!
We all love a heartwarming love story that brings a smile to our face, and that’s exactly what we asked you to share with us for the chance to win a luxury helicopter experience over London for two or one of ten copies of When I Fall in Love by Miranda Dickinson! We had some very sweet and some very funny stories but our star prize goes to Claire Thomson! And well done to our 10 runner-ups – Karen, Heather, Gerri, Rosalind, Sue, Fran, Tina, Mary, Sarah and Gulun!
Thanks to everyone for sharing all of your great stories with us, we loved every single one of them! And if you’ve not won this time then make sure you join us for some #FreeReadsFriday action over on Twitter!
