Competition: Win a community minibus worth over £40,000


The Press and Journal is delighted to giveaway a fantastic minibus to a local community group within our circulation area.

Last year 1st Methlick Scout Group drove away with a brand new bus and it has been put to good use transporting youngsters all over the country.

So if  you are part of any kind of community group, a sports team or even a school PTA then sign up today and encourage everyone you know to collect tokens.

Whatever you are involved with, there can’t be many groups who would turn down the opportunity to  win this fantastic bus!

And once again this fabulous competition is being sponsored by Nexen.




Nexen takes pride in building strong community partnerships where we live and work.  Our ReachOut community programme, which funds the minibus, focuses on helping to strengthen communities, not just with donations but also with the giving of our time through volunteering.  We are absolutely delighted to support this initiative.


The prize bus is a brand new white 17-seater from AM Phillip, Scotland. 

This new style Ford Transit has plenty luggage space, with increased leg room and height making it perfect for long journeys as well as short.



All you have to do is register your group from Monday, 5th November or complete a registration form in the Press and Journal.  Once you have registered you can then access support materials on our website which will provide you with everything you need to encourage your community to help collect tokens.

You will need just 50 tokens  to enter.  However to increase your chances of winning, you can send in multiple entry forms just as long as you have 50 tokens attached with each entry. 


Tokens will be printed in paper from Monday, 19th November until Saturday 3rd February.


All tokens must be in by the closing date Monday, 11th February, 2019.
