When St Albans shopper Sarah Woolard entered a shopping centre’s Christmas competition to win a variety of prizes from stores within the centre, she didn’t think she would win.

Almost 300 shoppers entered The Maltings Shopping Centre competition to win a range of prizes, worth over £250, including a bath bomb making workshop at Lush, a hamper of chocolate treats from Hotel Chocolat and a girlfriend party from bareMinerals.

Ms Wollard said: "I was on The Maltings Shopping Centre website checking store opening times for Christmas shopping and noticed the competition.

"I entered my details and didn’t think I’d ever hear back."

Ms Woolard has also been treated to a course of five eyebrow threading treatments worth £62.50 with City Beauty Salon, as well as a cut and finish with Simon Cox, Managing and Art Director of Clipso Hair Salon.
