January Blues Busting

22 January 2018

There’s nothing worse than that January slump when Christmas is over, we’re skint until the end of the month and … it’s cold!

Well, this year we kicked off our popular Random Acts of Kindness campaign to help solve that problem … by giving lucky shoppers money to spend in the stores here at Alhambra Shopping Centre.

On Friday 19th and Saturday 20th January – Dearne FM Street Team set up home outside of Primark from 11am and waited for shoppers to give them the phrase that pays ... CURE MY BLUES! 

In return shoppers were able to choose from a handful of envelopes – some containing shopping vouchers and others for Alhambra and Dearne FM goodies. Over the 2 days we gave away a whopping £1000 worth of shopping vouchers. 

We had some overwhelming feedback from our customers including Barnsley residents, Jane Goldthorpe, who said "It's fantastic, £10 voucher for TK Maxx!" Sandra Churchill said "Best day ever, it's not often you get owt for nowt!" and Jean from Barnsley said "Thank you .. The game that pays"

Random acts of Kindness will continue with even more giveaways and competitions throughout 2018 giving the people of Barnsley a little something to smile about. Keep up to date with our latest events by visiting our website, following our social media pages and signing up to our newsletter.
