Well we are down to the final twenty four hours of our annual Twenty Four Days of Twitmas promotion. We have to say that we’ve been delighted by the levels of participation across the board – as well as the prizes that were donated for the cause. There really was something for everyone.
Sunday, a personal favourite of mine, was a proper Scottish Tea Break goodies from the newly-launched KILTR.com – a networking site for Scots home and abroad. The goodies included some caramel wafers, tea, shortbread and a limited edition @kiltr mug too!
On Monday, the kind folks at the Renfewshire Chamber of Commerce, offered the choice between bottle of Johnnie Walker or a Chivas – but halfway through the day, they decided to offer them both! The Chivas went to @BraeScotland & the Johnnie Walker: @globalaudit.
We followed up the festive Spirits with one for the golf lovers out there! Up for grabs, thanks to our friends at Pro Shop Direct, a pair of FootJoy Golf Shoes worth more than a hundred pounds! These went to a very happy @dsparks83, followed by the mid-week Twitmas giveaway of a £25.00 voucher to spend at Gifted People. The winner was @deepfox who may put it towards a “microlight experience”!
The penultimate day of our promotion was one especially for the ladies – an Arbonne Seasource Detox Spa Express Set worth a hundred pounds. Heavenly luxury. This was won earlier tonight go by @janicepattie. A special thanks to @thejaxxstar for donating a very popular prize!
The Final Day – Day 24!
As a result of our last day of work in the office, in a bid to tidy all our desks, we uncovered a selection of sundry items to be given away a “booby prize”…(pictured below).
As you can see – it’s probably the best booby prize of all time, including – a big Cadbury Roses Tin (granted there are only three chocolates left), a SpidaTrap.com baseball hat, the only book of numbers you’ll ever need (well, if you live in Glasgow South), an NSDesign mug, a 2011 calendar, a copy of Essential 80s Pop Music (a random trivia book written in 1998 by yours truly!) and a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc wine (and amazingly we’ve not opened it!) Just to name but a few! So a few real goodies, and a few things thrown in just for fun!
We have arguably saved the biggest prize for last – a week’s accommodation at Les Grands Arbres in France. Exclusive use of the beautiful “Le Pommier” studio cottage (self catering) for any week between January 1st and the end of May 2011 (to be mutually agreed between the winner and Les Grands Arbres)! It’s a superb prize, and we’d like to thank Irene and Jim, the owners of Les Grands Arbres for donating it to our Twitmas initiative.
The final twenty four hours of the Twenty Four Days of Twitmas 2010 begins at 8pm tonight (Thursday 23rd December), and we’ll be closing the entire event at 8pm on the 24th.
The first randomly-selected winner will be announced at half eight and will pick up the “runner up” prize. Following that – the overall winner of the accommodation in France will be announced!!
Remember to follow us on Twitter for all the instructions about how to enter, and best of luck to everyone. Thanks again to the 1000’s of people who have taken part over the past 24 days – we hope you had as much fun participating, as we (and our generous clients) had running it! Merry Christmas to everyone, and here’s to #24Twitmas!
