Central England Co-op to give one lucky customer a £10,000 trip of a lifetime this summer

Shoppers visiting Central England food stores this summer could find themselves picking up a £10,000 holiday of a lifetime along with their groceries.

Whether scaling the Great Wall of China, experiencing the northern lights in Iceland or sampling sushi in Japan, whatever the dream a visit to their local food store this July and August could make it become reality for customers.

Central England Co-op Travel has teamed up with tour operator Cosmos to give one lucky shopper the chance to tick their dream holiday off from their bucket list by winning a £10,000 holiday for two.

Paul Dale, Head of Travel at Central England Co-op, said: “We are delighted to join with our partners at Cosmos to offer this once-in-a-lifetime trip to customers visiting Central England Co-op food stores this summer.

“Cosmos has over 50 years’ experience in giving holidaymakers the opportunity to explore the world, from escorted African safaris, tours of Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon in America to rail journeys through the Swiss Alps – there is no shortage of options for the lucky winner.

“So don’t miss out – make sure you give yourself a chance of winning this incredible prize and you could be swapping marvelling at the Mexican fajita kits in one of our food stores for marvelling at the Mayan ruins in Mexico itself.”

The competition to win the Trip of a Lifetime opens on July 3 and runs until August 28.

Shoppers making a purchase at any Central England Co-op will receive a postcard with details of how they can enter the competition.
