After a summer of giveaways, Shaun Michaels from Belfast has bagged the top prize of £6,000 cash in SPAR NI’s 60th birthday bonanza.

A regular at SPAR Titanic, Shaun scanned his way into the grand final draw by picking up his favourite enjoy local products each week and entering via the QR code. He is now planning to fly stateside just as soon as he can, thanks to his winnings.

Give My Head Peace star, Olivia Nash, who made SPAR a household name back in the ‘80s as the voice of the “Fred, we’ve no bread” TV ad, presented the winner with a cheque for £6,000 recently.

Shaun, who lived in the U.S for 12 years says he’ll be putting some of his winnings towards a trip back to see friends, but also spending it closer to home. He commented; “We just can’t believe it! We love shopping at SPAR, so it was easy for us to just scan through and enter once we got home.

“It’s great that SPAR is doing giveaways like this to make us all feel a part of their birthday celebrations, especially when it means we can do fun things like travel and enjoy a swanky meal, but also be a little bit sensible and pay off a bit of the mortgage!”

Jonny Agnew, Food Development Marketing Manager at Henderson Group added; “We received over 16,000 entries for the giveaways, where two shoppers per week won a £600 SPAR voucher over the past five weeks, and of course Shaun picking up the £6,000 grand prize.

“Connecting with our shoppers is very important to us and is what makes us part of their local communities for 60 years now. We’re delighted to share our celebrations with our shoppers and retailers and look forward to doing more over the remainder of the year.”

Olivia Nash added; “It’s been a pleasure being part of SPAR NI’s 60th birthday celebrations. I want to wish Sean a big congratulations, I hope he enjoys spending his winnings! Many happy returns to SPAR NI, here’s to the next 60!”
