Complete your stamp card and return for chance to enter a prize draw. (Note there is no restriction on number of stamp cards you completely fill up and return).
- Also take part in the #Local4Lent Hashtag Challenge by completing one or more of the listed local challenges and then tag your name, #Local4Lent, name of local business(es) with one or more photos to prove your completion of the challenge to either @totallylocallyleightonbuzzard (on Facebook) or @TotallyLocallyLB (on Instagram) also for chance to win in prize draw. (Again you can enter multiple times).
