LONDON, December 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
An iPad 2, London Eye tickets and more are up for grabs in a new festive competition that will also help support homeless charities across the UK
Christmas is coming early for 13 lucky winners in the Carrentals.co.uk '12 days of Christmas' giveaway, which is offering the chance to win a prize a day in the run up to the festive season.
An iPad 2, Amazon vouchers, tickets for two for the London Eye, a vineyard tour and tasting, and more are all up for grabs starting from 12 December.
The competition will offer a prize a day for 12 days, followed by a prize draw of all entrants on the 24th December for the chance to win the iPad 2.
Carrentals.co.uk is also donating the total cost of the prizes to the homeless charity, StreetSmart. StreetSmart helps over 90 homeless charities in 19 cities across the UK, and has so far raised and distributed over £4.7million to support a range of work including education and training initiatives, supported housing and health issues.
To enter the competition, each day visitors are given a clue to find a Carrentals.co.uk snowman hidden on the site. Once customers find the URL where the snowman is hiding they use it to enter the competition.
Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, says: "We have some great Christmas gifts to give away this year - it's up to the winners whether they keep them or give them to friends or family on Christmas Day! But we also wanted to give something to help the thousands of homeless people who can find it particularly hard at this time of year. StreetSmart helps many of the smaller homeless charities across the UK whose work is vital, and we hope our Christmas campaign will go some way in helping provide a range of support."
