Over the past few weeks Hull-based bakery, Jackson’s, has been offering one lucky street the chance to win a van packed full of their delicious Yorkshire’s Champion bread.
Opening the competition at the start of the bank holiday weekend, Jackson’s asked the Yorkshire public to visit their Facebook page and explain why their street deserved to win the tasty prize.
Now, 72 year-old Margaret Morris from Beverley, who lives in a local retirement complex, has been announced as the lucky winner.
“I’m absolutely delighted to have won- I really wasn’t expecting it so it was a lovely surprise! I’ve lived in Harvest Court for four years now and decided to enter the competition because the prize was something that the whole complex could enjoy. All of the residents are really close and we’re friends rather than just neighbours. We organise lots of social activities and all this bread will come in really handy for sandwiches at one of our coffee mornings!”
On Saturday 7 September, approximately 150 Yorkshire’s Champion bloomers arrived in style to Harvest Court via one of Jackson’s traditional delivery vans. Alongside the bread, Margaret and her friends also received some Yorkshire’s Champion coupons so they can continue enjoying Jackson’s bread even after their free supply has run out.
Marketing co-ordinator for Jackson’s, Katie Seddon, said:
“We were really impressed by the response we had to the competition and we had a tough job selecting a winner. Yorkshire goodness is one of the key themes behind the Yorkshire’s Champion brand and we were extremely touched by Margaret’s entry where she explained how the residents at Harvest Court are always working to support one another. They’ve got true community spirit and we hope they enjoy their van full of bread and coupons!”
Jackson’s Yorkshire’s Champion bread is now available in five different varieties: white, brown and seeded bloomers, as well as white and brown farmhouse loaves, all of which boast 100% Yorkshire provenance. From field to oven, every ingredient is carefully selected and blended to create a loaf that’s wholesome and nutritious and always makes the perfect snack.
