Customers shopped at their local county Iceland stores and ended up with not only their weekly shopping but £250 worth of Iceland food, plus all the goodies needed to host the biggest Diamond Jubilee party in town.

Three shoppers are the local winners of Iceland’s nationwide Jubilee competition to reward one customer from each of their stores with enough Iceland food and goodies to stage a celebration to remember on the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend.

They beat thousands of other hopefuls to the prize – a party pack stuffed to the brim with party food, Jubilee bunting, table cloths, crowns and lots of other Jubilee themed goodies to make their own Jubilee party on Sunday, June 3.

Family, friends and neighbours of Julie Nice, 44, from Corby will join her for a garden party to celebrate the historic occasion. The mother-of-two couldn’t believe her luck at winning the prize and is crossing her fingers for good weather.

Ramandeep Kumari, 33, from Kettering will be celebrating by hosting a party at home with close family and friends.

Mother-of-three Sharon Mclennan, 40, from Wellingborough is hosting her party at home for family and friends. There will be plenty of activities throughout the day for the children to make the event extra special.

Alison Laverick from Iceland said: “We are delighted that they are the winners of the competition from our Northamptonshire stores, and are now able to throw a fantastic Jubilee party. The Jubilee ties in nicely with Iceland’s ethics and, as one of the UK’s leading high street retailers, we wanted to give something back to the local community. There will be Jubilee parties taking place all over the country so it makes sense that we help our customers celebrate.

“It’s great that they can host her own Jubilee parties and invite all their friends and family to come and celebrate with them.

“We’re so excited about the extended Jubilee weekend and hope we can do our bit to make it the biggest party weekend Britain has seen in a long, long time.”

Iceland is giving away 726 Jubilee parties worth over £250,000, with a winner from every store. The parties will take place around the UK on Sunday 3rd June. Plus one lucky party winner will celebrate the occasion with a life changing £25,000 in cash.
