Telford shopper scoops £1,000 spree

A happy shopper from Donnington is celebrating winning a bumper £1,000 spending spree.

Donna Mason scooped the prize in a competition organised as part of Telford Shopping Centre’s spring fashion and beauty event.

The delighted mum said: “I put in my entry form and forgot all about it. I really didn’t expect to be lucky so it was a great surprise when I got the call to say I had won.

“I love Telford and come into the centre two or three times a week. My favourite stores are House of Fraser, Diffusion and Debenhams because they have a good choice of designer ranges.

“I’m not sure what I’ll be spending the prize on. My son has just finished his GCSEs so maybe I’ll treat him for working so hard, or put the money towards a family trip.”

The competition was open to anyone who spent £50 in the Centre during the weekend of the fashion and beauty shows, with the winning entry receiving a £1,000 Telford Shopping Centre gift card.

Katie Broome, marketing manager for the Telford Centre, said: “We are thrilled that Donna has picked up the prize and it’s great to hear how much she enjoys shopping at Telford.

“The fashion and beauty weekend allowed us to showcase many of the top brands available in the Centre, and the live shows and demonstrations were very popular with visitors. We are already planning more interactive and engaging events for shoppers through the rest of the year.”

The Telford Shopping Centre gift card can be used throughout the Centre against purchases within stores that operate a swipe credit card facility, including shops, restaurants and cafes and travel agents.
