A FAMILY of four received an early Christmas present after winning £1,000 worth of vouchers from a loyalty card campaign.

Simon Johns, of Digby Road, Evesham, said his wife Nicky did not believe him when he told her he had won the YES loyalty card draw.

He had collected stamps for the winning card while shopping in Evesham with his wife and two children Freya, five, and Aaron, two.

Having done most of their Christmas shopping, the couple have decided to spend the vouchers on a meal and possibly a new mattress and tumble dryer.

Mr Johns said: “It’s a superb Christmas present.

We’re a bit of a competitionmad family and this is great timing, just before Christmas.”

Shawn Riley, market town partnership manager, presented the £1,000 in Evesham shopping vouchers to Mr Johns and Aaron the day after the prize draw.

The YES campaign was launched in October and encourages shoppers to spend their money in town businesses to be in with a chance of winning £1,000 each month. After 12 months, all cards are entered into a £3,000 cash grand finale draw.

Mr Riley said he was delighted the campaign had quickly become such a success with more than 110 businesses signing up.
