A GIANT advent calendar has arrived at Warrington Market, giving customers the chance to win 1 of 24 prizes.

Traders are inviting customers to come into the market and enter for free, for a chance to open one of the advent doors every day in December, with a selection of secret prizes hidden behind each door.

Gary Jaques, Market Traders liaison officer said: “We’re really excited to launch our Christmas promotion this year with our giant advent calendar. We have a selection of amazing prizes on offer, all donated by Warrington Market traders. With each day’s prize having a minimum value of £50, this is definitely a competition not to be missed and we’re all really excited to see the smiles on people’s faces as they open the boxes.”

To be in with a chance of winning, simply visit the market and complete a quick entry form located on the giant advent calendar stall – situated in the middle of the market – and pop it in the entry box.

Winners will be selected at random each day in December, until Christmas Eve, with an additional chance to win a Christmas dinner food and drink hamper via Warrington Market’s Facebook page.

Entries are now open, with the first winner being drawn on Saturday, November 30 ready to open the first calendar door on Sunday, December 1.

On the stall there will also be a food collection for Warrington Food Bank and handwritten, bespoke letters from Santa for sale, courtesy of young trader Kat Reid of Cats, Tea & Calligraphy.

Kat will be popping up in the market every Saturday in November and every Saturday and Sunday in December, from 10.30am.
