2 - You will need to keep this tickets safe.

3 - At the start of every month I will do a draw and the winning ticket holder will get an extra £10 inc free P&P to spend.

So the more you spend throughout the month the more chances you have to win.

I have already had lots of orders (thank you) so all of you will receive numbers by email over the next day or so and I shall pop your tickets into the draw.
Winners of each monthly draw will be announced on my sidebar and also on my shop front page.
