Rotary Stickers Mean Prizes!

Mon, Nov 8th 2021 at 12:04 pm- Fri, Dec 31st 2021 - 11:59 pm

Christmas shoppers can win a £25 prize for spotting the most "We support the Rotary Club of Oswestry" stickers on display in shops and offices around town between now and the end of the year.

President Dave and the stickers you should be looking out for.

With a closing date of 31st December 2021, entrants should list all the locations where they have spotted a Rotary sticker on a sheet of paper together with their name and contact details.

A £2 fee per entry should also be enclosed and handed in with the form to Oswestry Rotary Club Christmas Sticker Competition, c/o John Davies Investment & Mortgage Services, 22 Willow St, Oswestry, SY11 1AD - just opposite The Post Office.

Inspired by his Rotary Friendship Exchange to Australia and New Zealand just before the pandemic and lockdown struck in Spring 2020, Oswestry Rotary Club President David Griggs could see that such stickers could feature in a festive competition back home in Oswestry.

David said: "Our Rotary Club receives a lot of support from Oswestry businesses throughout the year but particularly around this time when they provide crucial sponsorship of our Christmas Tree of Light Appeal raising funds for local charities. This is one way that we can show that we are grateful for their assistance."

"Plus I have visited all the premises concerned so my judge's decision in the competition is final! In the event of a tie, we will draw from the entries with the most locations listed."

All proceeds from this competition will be donated to Oswestry Rotary Club's Christmas Tree of Light Appeal for local charities.

If any shop wishes to display a sticker but has not yet been approached, please contact rotarycluboswestry@gmail.com.
