Competition time!

Rachel wants to know your best money saving tips and ideas

“Our Helping Families Work project are running a competition to find the best money saving tips and ideas you or your family have come up with to help make your money go further in lockdown.

“You can share your ideas on our Helping Families Work Facebook page. Your ideas might help and inspire others to come up with ways to help ease the pressures of working and juggling family life.

“These are very different and challenging time and there are lots of working families across Torfaen who are struggling at the moment due to loss of jobs or being furloughed.

“The winner will  receive a 8” tablet and the 3 runners up will receive £10 love to shop gift vouchers. Please send your entries to our Helping Families Work Facebook page by Friday 3 July.

“Of course we haven’t forgotten the children. We have teamed up with Head4Art and have a arts and craft competition just for children!

“If your  children love arts and crafts then this is their chance to get creative. We would love to see what they are most looking forward to doing once lockdown is lifted. This can be anything a picture, a model , a painting , whatever. They just need to have fun creating.

“To enter your children’s art please send us a photo via our Helping Families Work Facebook page of your finished entry by Friday 3 July. All entries will receive an art pack from Heads4art just for taking part !

“First prize will receive a 8” tablet and the 3 runners up will receive a £10 Hobby craft gift card to spend on all their favourite arts and crafty things !

“The team and I are excited to see what your children come up with to bring their fun activities to life!”
