SPAR Shopper Wins Energy for a Year in Competition Giveaway

February 06, 2023

A convenience store shopper from Worcester has won free energy for a year after entering a SPAR Christmas competition.

Jonathan Whitwell collected a cash prize of £4,399 from SPAR Warndon after winning one of four grand prizes in the SPAR ‘Merry Textmas’ competition, which has given away up to £100,000 worth of prizes.

The £4,399 prize value reflects the average family spend on energy from April 2020 to March 2021.

Winner Jonathan Whitwell commented: “It was such a lovely call to receive on a rainy afternoon, I am still in shock as did not believe before anyone wins prizes like these. Thank you so much SPAR - this win has come at just the best time for us, and it will make an enormous difference to my family and I. Thanks again!”

SPAR Store Manager Zowie Spragg said: “It is fantastic to be able to reward our shoppers with prizes like this at what can be a difficult financial time of year for many. We really appreciate all our customers, and it’s a wonderful way of saying thank you for shopping at SPAR.

“We hope that this prize goes a long way in helping Jonathan with his bills this year and that all our customers have enjoyed taking part in our Merry Textmas competition.”

Merry Textmas was a 25-day text-to-win competition that ran in more than 300 SPAR stores across England and Wales from 8th December 2022 to 1st January 2023.

Weekly grand prize draws offered customers the chance to win one of four big budget-boosting prizes: cash towards Christmas, fuel for a year, energy for a year or shopping at SPAR for a year.

Shoppers could also play daily to win one of more than 30,000 spot prizes redeemable at SPAR stores simply by sending a text.

Other entries into the weekly grand prize draw could be won by downloading the SPAR Merry Textmas app, which featured an augmented reality game that could be played in-store.
