SP Xtra: Editor's Blog

Hi, my name's Sammy and I'm the Editor of Simply Prizes magazine. Every week I'll be bringing you an update or two about any interesting competitions I find or any comping news. Plus I'll bring you any competitions or offers I find.

The Great British Bake Off!

If like half the nation you are now glued to The Great British Bake Off then you might just want to keep an eye on the Lakeland blog. They are running a weekly competition in conjunction with the show where you can show off your own baking skills with the opportunity to bag yourself a prize too!


They will be running a new #MyLakelandBake theme every week where the top three bakers will each receive a £50 Lakeland gift voucher and also be entered into the grand final.


There are several ways of submitting your bake; you’ll need to take a pic and enter it via Twitter, Instagram or upload to their blog. If you are using social media be sure to tag them @LakelandUK and use the hashtag #MyLakelandBake.


If you’re quick you’ve just about got time to enter the first week’s comp – which is bread week! Entries close at midnight tonight!


Happy baking!

Week six – summer holiday kid’s comps! The end!

That’s it; the end is in sight - the kids are back to school next week! I actually can’t believe how quickly it has gone and it seems odd as we are still on our summer holiday. Back home Saturday though to a mountain of washing and getting the kids prepped for school. Although I was ultra-organised this year and all school uniform was bought, washed and ironed in the first week of the holidays; which is a nice feeling knowing it’s already done!


And to keep them occupied for the last few days, here are a couple more comps for the kids to get stuck into.


Win some Emoji merchandise by helping the kids to upload a fun selfie. Under 16’s must be entered by a parent. You can enter up to three times every day until 30th November although a maximum of one prize per week can be won by one person. More details and info on how to enter can be found here .


Draw your dream dinosaur and have the chance to get it printed on a giant bean bag and a family ticket to the Dinosaurs of China exhibition. Open to entrants aged 11 and under you have until midnight on 30th September to enter. Full details and entry info can be found here .


Have fun with these ones and remember normality is nearly here! Keep an eye on the website tomorrow for your update of social media comps too. I may not be around tomorrow evening as will be getting ready to leave the lodge early Saturday morning but I’ll catch up with you all via our Facebook page when I’m back.


Have a great weekend.
