9:50am Thursday 12th December 2013 in Keighley
A Keighley woman has won a cracker of a prize in a Christmas competition.
Nazia Khan, of Mornington Street, took top spot in a contest staged by the Keighley News and the Town Centre Association.
She won a giant teddy bear from Conways, a necklace from Raffles jewellers, vouchers from Amici Italian restaurant and a Fairtrade hamper, which was donated by Keighley’s Fairtrade steering group.
Entrants were asked what date the town’s Christmas lights were being switched on and then to post their entry in a special box outside Next, in the Airedale Shopping Centre, on the day of the switch-on – November 24.
Entries could also be submitted online.
Mrs Khan, a mother of three young daughters, said she was delighted to win.
“I was shocked but pleased when I got the phone call,” she said.
“The teddy is huge and the girls love it – it’s like having another person in the house!”
Second prize went to Anne Birtwhistle, third Rachel Bates, fourth Caroline Rhodes and fifth Roger Bullock.
