Spotters seek 766 prizes in Leeds shops

June 25, 1951 | Filed under: Yorkshire Post

LEEDS shoppers eagerly scanned shop windows to-day for the 766 prizes offered in connection with Leeds Shopping Festival organised by the Leeds Chamber of Commerce as a contribution to the City’s Festival of Britain Week.

First claim for a prize – a Biro pen – was made half an hour after the competition opened. The winner can collect the prize after July 14.

Each of the 30,000 official handbooks bears a number on the outside back cover, and winning numbers are those which correspond to the numbers displayed on articles in the windows of 170 shops in the City centre.
