A £1000 Moray Gift Card is up for grabs in a contest to describe your perfect Christmas.

The cash, which can be spent in more than 270 local businesses, is the prize in the 'Win Your Dream Christmas' competition.

Many of the Moray entries so far have been heart-warming, with people describing how they're looking forward to the festive period after a difficult year.

One entrant pictured their Dream Christmas as: "A family day where my children are happy and everyone has a full belly."

A second stated: "All the family, fabulous food, a few festive drams and a heart full of fantastic memories!"

Another said: "This year has had its hard times, but as a family we have worked through them. I’m so looking forward to us all being together round the table sharing lovely food."

While yet another said: "We aren't well off but my dream Christmas is seeing how happy my wee girl is on Christmas morning."

The Moray Gift Card is part of the Scotland Loves Local concept which was created by the Scotland's Towns Partnership to encourage more folk to support local business.

The £1000 prize can be spent in all sorts of ways – at shops, restaurants and attractions.

Nearly £100,000 has been spent in Moray through the Moray Gift Card since the launch of the initiative in 2021.

Lorna Williamson, Manager at Business Gateway Moray, said: "We’re thrilled to unveil the Win Your Dream Christmas competition in Moray.

"With over 270 businesses now part of the initiative, just imagine what the winner could do with a £1000 Moray Gift Card this Christmas.

"They could take their family out for a festive meal in one of Moray’s fantastic restaurants. They could treat their loved ones to everything on their Christmas list. They could even indulge in some pampering or have a night out with friends.

"The Win Your Dream Christmas competition is also a reminder of the amazing businesses we have here in Moray – everything you need for a dream Christmas is right here on our doorstep."

The contest closes this Friday.
