What’s in the giveaway?

Washing machine and hamper of towels (RRP £340)

The ACE Christmas addition is a Zanussi Lindo300 washing machine worth £319 to make Christmas dinner stains a thing of the past. It probably won’t be a white Christmas this year, but yours can still be merry and bright with a wicker hamper of fluffy, white towels.

  24. Kristyn Harris - 14th December 2017 11:09

    I would love my family to win with ACE
    As we need all our bad luck to erase
    We’ve had lots of problems with building work
    Our kitchen is a sight and I’m going berserk
    A hamper of towels with a washing machine
    Would mean all our clothes would again become clean!
    An Itsyourstory voucher would be great fun for daughter
    And make her smile more – like she really oughta
    A radio & bluetooth speaker could play me some tunes
    While I’m washing the clothes in the afternoons
    And a stunt scooter would be such a scream
    And take me back to when I was a teen!
    Building a Giant Dinosaur sounds quite complex
    But I’d love to find out more about Tyrannosaurus Rex
    The books with animal sounds would be cool
    I could give them to my nephew to show at his school
    I need a botanical Cam’pouch for my bits
    To put in my handbag, ensuring everything fits
    Sugru kit could help me store my pan lids
    And stop then being used as cymbals by the kids!
    To build our own MEGA-BOT would be fun
    A team-building project for my daughter and son
    A beautiful birdcage would be a lovely sight
    We could make it a feature – even in a spot light
    And finally a frog egg mould – the perfect piece
    To make tea time fun – also perfect for my niece!
    Look – so many ways ACE could help me and my kin
    Please make everything perfect and let us win!
