Hello compers! August is here, can you believe it? What has been your highlight of the summer so far? Mine has to be taking my eldest and her BFF on a day’s outing to celebrate her 8th birthday this week. This consisted of the zoo, the beach, ice creams, picnic, a few beach-side rides and the obligatory burgers, fries and milkshakes on the way home! Let me know what you have been up to in the comments below, we love to hear from you!
Have you been watching and enjoying the Commonwealth games the last few weeks? We enjoy all kinds of sport in our house – football, golf, snooker, darts, athletics, swimming, gymnastics, you name it. I often think we husband would watch meerkats playing in a five-a-side football match if it were televised! If the Commonwealth games has spurred you on to get involved with a local sports team, Lucozade Sport have a great on-pack promotion to help. From now until 31st March 2015 all participating promotional Lucozade Sports products will include “Kit Out Project” codes, which can be collected, logged online and redeemed against sports kit for you, your local school or your local team!
Anyone aged 18 or over can register a club or group and administer the codes, and anyone 12 or over can add codes directly to a registered club account. The project includes football and rugby match and training kits, general athletic wear and sports equipment. This is a great project and, along the same lines as the big supermarket coupon collects, this will make a big difference to your local schools and sports teams. So grab a promotional can or bottle and get entering those codes!
On the sporting theme, here are a few late-entry comps for you to get the heart racing this weekend too:
- If weight training is your sport, then Sky Sports have the perfect competition for you. They are giving away a Premium Weight Bench and Fitness Kit in association with the new Hercules movie Simply log onto the website, and answer the question (Our advice – Lion) by 6th August 2014 for a chance to win.
- If rugby is your sport of choice, and you would like the chance to attend the World Club 7s tournament at Twickenham, then head over to the Great British Life website and enter their competition to win 1 of 5 pairs of tickets. Simply answer the question (Our advice – England) and email your details to email@example.com by 9th August 2014 to enter.
- Do you enjoy watching the golf? My husband would spend hours per day watching golf if he were allowed to! I know he would love to enter the Golf Monthly / Visit Scotland competition to win the Ultimate 4 night Ryder Cup break for 4 people! To enter you need to supply your details by 15th August 2014 and that’s all there is to it!
- Does your child like to hula-hoop? My eldest is a demon hooper, and I know she will definitely be entering the Valentines Sports competition. For this one children aged 5-11 can decorate the blank hula-hoop sheet provided on the website, and answer the tie breaker “I love Hula Hoops because…”. They then need to either post or email it in, for a chance of winning themselves a hula hoop, and one for every person in their school class too! Entries need to be in by 31st August 2014, and I am afraid this one is only open to UK Mainland (not Islands, Highlands or N Ireland).
Happy sporty, weekend comping, and lots of Lucky Dust to you all.
