Lincoln shoppers in line for 12 days of Christmas giveaways

The Lincoln Business Improvement Group and the Visit Lincoln Partnership are inviting city centre shoppers to try their luck at winning a prize this Christmas.

The Twelve Days of Christmas giveaway is aimed to encourage people to discover more of the city’s mix of businesses – and try their luck at winning a prize.

All shoppers and visitors have to do is pop into the participating businesses and post an entry slip, found on flyers in those stores, in the entries box provided.

Lincoln BIG levy payers are giving away foodie gifts, cocktails, craft/science kits, high-tech accessories, lunch in a classy Lincoln restaurant and even overnight stays.

The draw is being launched on Thursday, November 20 – the same day as Lincoln celebrates the switching on of the city’s festive lights.

Lincoln BIG Events & Promotions Manager Michael Armstrong said: “In previous years, we have run the popular Advent Calendar Box competition, but this year we decided to put a fresh twist on things.

“We’re encouraging everyone to get in the spirit of the season, take a fresh look at the wealth of shopping we have in the city, and try their luck in this special Christmas promotion.”
