A Swansea local has won an incredible £10,000 in a ‘Spinner Winner’ competition run by the food convenience store SPAR.

The competition, known for its focus on money-saving opportunities, was launched this Easter following the success of the ‘Yule Spinner winner’ back in February.

Karen from Swansea who discovered the competition at her local SPAR store on Mount Cresent, Swansea said: “I am ecstatic to have won SPAR’s Spin & Win Grand prize. I’ve never won anything like this, it feels amazing. When I received the phone call from SPAR, I thought it was a prank I was totally shocked. It feels amazing to win.”


The Easter competition ran from 14th March until 3rd of April and saw 247,444 spins of the digital wheel leading to over 43,106 entries in the grand prize draw.

The Easter Spinner Winner not only offered customers the chance to win £10,000 cash, but it also gave away 367,999 instant prizes including cupboard food items and vouchers.

When asked how she’d spend her new fortune, Karen added: “I plan to pay off some bills, do some DIY around my home and spoil my dog and cat.”


Sharon Thomas, store manager at SPAR Mount Cresent said: “It’s great to see a regular SPAR customer win such a large cash prize. The Spinner Winner draws are a fantastic opportunity to create a buzz in the local community and give back to those who always support our store.”
