Softie 3

Give your cuddly toy a day out and win a prize

Everyone has a favourite cuddly toy – some of us grown-ups have had ours for decades, while children all have their own one of choice.

And now your cuddly chum could help you win a fantastic prize, with Almond Valley’s Softie September.

If you post of photo of your soft toy enjoying a day at Almond Valley in Livingston, then you’re in with a chance to win an annual family pass to the West Lothian venue.

To celebrate the soft toy competition, the team have who work there brought their own furry friends to the farm. Due to the huge response, Almond Valley have decided to run the competition throughout September with anyone taking a photo with their toy at the site in with a chance to win.

The bond between the team members and their soft toys is strong and most have had their furry friends since they were babies – and some are in better condition than others!

Front of House manager Rhiannon Murray said: ‘It was so nice having Sloth with me while I greeted guests into the site. I’ve had him for so long and it’s always a nice comfort having him near by.

‘I always love seeing families with their toys to share their fun day and now there is an even better reason to bring them along. It’s a great prize and I’m sure we’ll have lots of creative entries.’

If you’re visiting before the end of September, remember to bring your soft toys. Anyone posting a photo of their softie enjoying a day at Almond Valley will be in with a chance to win a free family annual pass.

This pass is worth over £100 and will enable a whole family to come back to Almond Valley as many times as they like for a whole year.

Whether your softie prefers the trampoline, bouncer, pedal carts, or the new goods train, post a snap of them having fun @AlmondValleyHC using #SoftieSelfie. The competition will run until the end of September.

If you would prefer your photo not to be shared on social media, please send the photo by private message on Facebook or email
