One lucky shopper has become £6,500 richer after scooping SPAR’s top cash prize in its popular 12 Deals of Christmas promotion.

Patricia McAlea from Glengormley bagged the grand finale prize, which wrapped up the 12-week campaign at SPAR and EUROSPAR stores and supermarkets across Northern Ireland, winning from thousands of entries by shoppers.

“I shop at my local Glenwell EUROSPAR store on the Antrim Road, and I’d been picking up the deals over the weeks with the 12 Deals of Christmas campaign, and entering the prize draw each week too,” said McAlea.

“I wasn’t successful with any of the vouchers, but you know what they say – you’ve got to be in it, to win it. I can’t believe my name was drawn for the cash prize.

“I got the call to say to come down to the store as I’d won £500, and then Olivia Nash is there telling me I’ve actually won £6,500. What a great way to ring in 2022.”

Patricia was met at SPAR Carnmoney Road by SPAR star Olivia Nash, the Give My Head Peace actor who had been helping SPAR celebrate 60 years in Northern Ireland in 2021, alongside representatives from SPAR NI.

“Oh, it was just fabulous to surprise Patricia,” said Nash. “I had the best year celebrating with SPAR NI and their fantastic shoppers, and to finish up the year in this way was very special.”

Sara Murphy, marketing manager, Henderson Group, said: “We had thousands of entries for our £12,000 giveaway at the end of last year and we have given away £4,500 worth of SPAR NI store vouchers, with Patricia now winning the £6,500 cash prize.

“The 12 Deals of Christmas campaign was another great success for our retailers last year, boosting sales during the crucial run up to Christmas, as well as ensuring our shoppers got top value on their festive and everyday essentials.”
