lunches, dinners, coffee for a year,

£300 in shopping vouchers for Eastbourne Enterprise Centre and so much more!

Two runners-up will also win £100 shopping vouchers each for Eastbourne Enterprise Centre.

But you can’t buy these tickets.

To enter, all you need to do is spend £40 in Eastbourne Town Centre at some point between 1st December and midday Christmas Eve. Take your receipt to any of the distribution points or take a photo of your receipts and send by email to christmas@youreastbournebid.com to be in with a chance to win.

Whether you spend £200 in one go or spread a £40 spend over a day by visiting several businesses, you are eligible for entry. For every £40 you spend (up to £200 a time), you can get a ticket to the raffle, which will be drawn live on Facebook on Christmas Eve.

Organisers, Your Eastbourne BID, have secured lots of fantastic prizes for one lucky winner to have the best start to 2021 and if any of the events are cancelled, the tickets will transfer over to 2022.

Stephen Holt, CEO of Your Eastbourne BID said, ‘We are so excited to be able to bring this to Eastbourne at the end of what has been a very difficult year for everyone. With people starting to think more about shopping locally, we are pleased we can offer this as another incentive and incredibly grateful to all the organisations, businesses and individuals who have donated some very generous prizes.’

Ticket distribution points will be in Eastbourne Enterprise Centre and 49 Gildredge Road, with more places to be confirmed soon.

Every £40 receipt entered must come from any of the businesses within Eastbourne’s Business Improvement District (BID), which covers the town centre from Commercial Road to Victoria Place, Little Chelsea, The Beacon, Cornfield Road, Cornfield Terrace, Mark Lane, Station Parade, Station Street, Bolton Road and part of Langney Road.
