Biscuit bosses branch out in jubilee giveaway
Last updated at 15:18, Friday, 02 November 2012
Biscuit factory bosses are continuing celebrations for the Queen’s diamond jubilee year.
Management at McVitie’s in Carlisle are holding a special giveaway to mark her 60 years on the throne.
But they’re not handing out biscuits – but trees. The company has teamed up with the Woodland Trust, which has donated trees for the firm to pass on to 10 organisations.
To be in with a chance of winning, they must explain in no more than 100 words why they or their organisation should receive the trees.
An overall winner will receive 15 trees, while nine runners-up will collect 10 trees.
Entries will be judged by McVitie’s Carlisle factory manager, Angela Gibbs.
The trees will be supplied this month as saplings, which are about a foot tall.
They are from the Woodland Trust’s wildlife-themed tree pack and have been specially chosen to help attract wildlife. Species included are hawthorn, hazel, birch, rowan, oak and blackthorn. To enter, email your contact detail and nomination to marketing@cnmedia. co.uk.
The closing date is November 12.
