Not just one but four shoppers were rewarded in the first anniversary Superdraw of the Shop Clitheroe loyalty scheme.
Clitheroe Chamber of Trade and Commerce, who run the scheme, splashed out on the extra prizes to coincide with the recent Clitheroe Food Festival.
One of the four winners, Mr Richard Chew, from Barrow, opted for the luxury food hamper with lots of goodies in it, donated by companies exhibiting at the festival.
“This is great” said Mr Chew. “I am absolutely delighted. I have been telling all my friends and neighbours they should join the scheme, but they seem to think they won’t win. I hope my good fortune will change their minds.”
Mum-of-two Wendy Kitching, from Pendleton, was a first-time winner and received £50-worth of Shop Clitheroe vouchers at DJP Electrical, King Lane.
She said: “I’ve not had my card for very long and this was the first time I have filled one for the monthly draw. How lucky am I?”
Maureen Holt, shop manageress at DJP electrical, said: “We have had a lot of positive feedback and our customers have really taken to this idea. It is one of many initiatives from Clitheroe Chamber of Trade, and during these difficult economic times it is great to be able to offer a little extra to our customers.
“With 80 businesses, shops and cafes participating, the cost to each trader is negligible and yet this month the chamber is giving away prizes worth over £200.”
Winning £30 Shop Clitheroe vouchers was Stonyhurst resident Hilary Hopkins.
She said: “Great! Thirty pounds more to spend in places I already frequent. This is music to my ears.”
The fourth winner, who did not wish to be named, will get a long-stay car park permit courtesy of Ribble Valley Borough Council.
The Shop Clitheroe scheme, promoted by the Clitheroe Advertiser and Times, offers a loyalty card stamped by participating businesses, for a monthly £50 draw.
