Ballymena BID manager Emma McCrea said: “There’s no doubt this has been a very difficult year, and we really wanted to give something back to the local community, shoppers and traders alike. With £20,000 worth of vouchers available, this could really be life changing for some families this winter.

“This is a real feel good event that benefits everyone and a chance to give back during these hard times. Christmas is a time to look out for one another and to treat yourself and the ones you love, so we’re combining these elements into an amazing opportunity to spread some festive feeling around Ballymena this November and December.

“Safety is also so important to us and our retailers so if you’re popping in, don’t forget your mask, use sanitiser and enjoy yourself as you get entering by supporting local retailers.”

You can enter with as many purchases as you like that make up at least £30 from November 10-30.

Winners will be announced from November 15
