Lottery deal returns but must be quick

A National Lottery campaign offering families the chance to enjoy a day
out at Clacton Pier for just £2 is back – but you need to be quick.

The scheme, which is run in collaboration with VisitBritain, was first
launched last month and it proved so popular that funding ran out in around three

Now more vouchers are up for grabs in the campaign which has a large
number of attractions signed up.

Pier director Billy Ball said that more than 3,000 families have already
benefited by booking a Big Day Out Band, normally priced £24.99, for just £2.

“It was great that so many people got their bands first time around –
but many were left disappointed due to the huge take-up,” he said.

“We have been informed by VisitBritain that more vouchers are being
released today (August 9) so there is another opportunity for those who missed
out, but they will need to act fast.

“It is expected the vouchers will only be available for around seven to
ten days, given the expected interest.”

Anyone wanting to benefit from the offer needs to buy a National Lottery
ticket, Scratchcard or Instant Win Game.  

The 19 digit lotto code is then entered onto the National Lottery
website to obtain a voucher code from VisitBritain to save the £25 on a date of
your choice up until the end of the year.

The voucher code is then taken to the pier’s ticket box on the ride deck
and exchanged for the Big Day Out Band.
