A WOMAN who was a lucky winner in a cash back promotion to win back the value of her shopping immediately donated her cheque to charity.

Mrs Elizabeth Acres won £117 of her cash back when she entered The Chantry Centre promotion on Thursday 13 December.

On receiving the cheque she handed it back requesting the centre put it towards the centre’s wishing well collection point in the Grotto, in aid of Naomi House Children’s Hospice.

“I just couldn’t believe that I had won, as I never win anything and I am so thankful to The Chantry Centre,” she said.At this time of year there are so many people who need it more, and Naomi House Children’s Hospice was the perfect choice, I had to give it to them.”

The Christmas Cash Back promotion at The Chantry Centre came to a close after 27 shoppers won back a total prize fund of £2,528.

Almost 1,000 shoppers entered the promotion at the centre, which ran between 19 November and 16 December, all with the hope to win back the value of their recent shopping trip.

Steve Cotney, centre manager, said: “We were really pleased at the response to our recent Christmas Cash Back promotion.

“Our customers were certainly very excited at the thought of having some extra money to spend on Christmas presents this year.

“Watch this space for more exciting promotions in 2013.”
