|An activity funded by Sense, |
the UK charity for deaf blind children and adults
As for my part of the deal (£60 of Amazon vouchers for me, too) I'm opting to donate them to Sense, a national UK charity that supports and campaigns for children and adults who are deaf blind. They offer specialist services, community resource centres, living options, one-to-one support, children's support, short breaks and fun groups as well as advice on issues relating to dual sensory impairment. My late Mother-in-law barely had two pennies to rub together for most of her life but still supported many charities including Sense, which was one of her favourites; it was an easy decision to allow them to benefit from a blog affiliation on my part.
What do you have to do to be in with a chance of winning the vouchers? You have to take a short shopping quiz - click here - (and it is really short - 60 seconds tops) to find out your personal shopping style. (You're all welcome to do the quiz but the giveaway itself is only open to UK readers). ">Barclaycard and Brunel University have collaborated to research the modern way in which we shop and how UK shoppers can now be defined into four new shopping tribes. The online quiz will identify whether you are a Bargain Hunter Gatherer, a Screen Saver, a Profit Prophet or a High Street Pounder!
|The shopping quiz - |
what kind of shopper are you!
I took the quiz and apparently I'm the latter - a High Street Pounder. That'll be because I answered that I do much of my shopping locally and am on first name terms with many of our local shopkeepers. Remember that our high street is not a big city high street full of big high street names. The kind of pounding the streets that I do is in and out of our local Co-op, a quick browse of the three local charity shops, and popping in for a chat with the owner of the local antique/bric-a-brac shop (as featured on Celebrity Antique Road Trip yesterday) or my friends in the book shop!

Once you have taken the quiz, please leave a comment on this blog post or on the blog's Facebook page and share your own shopping style. I will let the giveaway run until 7pm on Saturday 30 November when I will choose a winner at random. Please come back to find out if you have been lucky on Sunday. If you are the lucky winner, you will need to contact me by email so I can send you the voucher codes. To ensure that I can contact you it would help if you are a blog subscriber or follower.
