Shopping Spree Competition Winner
As part of our Spring/Summer fashion event, we ran a competition to win £500 to spend in the Howard Centre, with personal TV personality Wendy Elsmore.
The lucky winner, Helen Giles was absolutely delighted with her prize. Helen said "I am a regular shopper at the Howard Centre and entered this competition without really thinking that I would ever have a hope of winning it. I was so excited to to find out that I had won £500 worth of shopping vouchers and even more so meeting Wendy Elsmore and having her expertise and enthusiasm with me all day. The shopping spree was so much fun. I have never spent £500 so quickly. Wendy did a wonderful job of understanding what I wanted and what suited me and has really helped me to move away from my "safe" baggy everyday clothes."
"I managed to get a whole new summer wardrobe from head to toe, including make up from Boots, shoes from Clarks, a dress and tops from Monsoon, jewellery from Accessorize, underwear from M&S and skirts and jeans from Dorothy Perkins! The timing was brilliant as I am off on holiday soon! Thankyou to the Howard Centre for giving me a wonderful day of pure extravagance and fun!"
