Hamper winner

30 January 2018

One lucky entrant has picked up a hamper full of goodies thanks to generous local businesses.

Catherine Chappell won the Christmas Hamper competition run by the Taunton Visitor Centre.  It included a champagne breakfast for two, two pairs of Crafty Crafter tickets, lip balm from Dotty’s, a bear from Calverts and much more.

During December the Visitor Centre team organised a daily Advent Calendar competition on the Visit Taunton Facebook page with prizes donated by local companies and attractions.

To be in with a chance of winning the prize of the day people had to “like” the page and post a comment.  The winner was then selected at random.

The hamper competition ran during the festive break from Christmas Day to New Year’s Day.

Marketing and Place Manager Andrew Hopkins, said: “We have run the competition for two years now and is it a huge success.

It’s a superb platform for local businesses and attractions to promote their products and events on social media, and it really captures the imagination of the public who have a chance to win some fabulous prizes.

“It was great to be able to present Catherine with her hamper which I hope she will enjoy.”
