Home and garden retailer wilko is launching a nationwide search for six deserving individuals to win their entire Christmas, including presents, for free, as a thank you for their hard work throughout the unsettled period of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The six winners of the business’ Bring Home Christmas competition will each receive a tailored prize package worth £3,000, complete with everything from decorations to dinnerware, pressies to pet toys, giftwrap to Christmas day goodies and all of the essentials in-between that are needed for a successful festive celebration. They’ll even receive a whole host of festive food and even £500 worth of wilko gift vouchers for anything else on their family’s Christmas lists this year.

All of the items will be delivered and wilko’s team of festive helpers will even install all of the decorations.

In particular, the retailer is keen for the winners to reflect the work of its Together for Families charity programme partners – and three of the six winners will be selected by these good causes, comprising Alzheimer’s Society, Save the Children and Teenage Cancer Trust.

To enter, simply send a short email to, listing why someone in your area or life deserves an extra special Christmas. Please also include:

The person’s name, age and location
Whether the amazing work they undertook was paid or unpaid
If they’re related in any way, contribute to or directly benefit from the services provided a wilko charity partner Alzheimer’s Society, Save the Children or Teenage Cancer Trust
And anything else that made them a standout figure throughout the pandemic

When it comes to reasons for the nomination, It could be that the person worked tirelessly as an unpaid carer for a family member with dementia, dished up and provided school dinners for low income families, remained positive in the face of adversity on a cancer ward – or anything else that made a real impact for local communities, a family or even one person in real need. Whatever the good work, be it professional or voluntary, front line or from home, wilko wants to hear about it.

Jerome Saint-Marc, CEO at wilko, comments: “We’re so excited to work alongside our Together for Families charity partners to get started on spreading some festive cheer for six hardworking people who went above and beyond to be helpful during the pandemic, which has touched everyone’s lives but particularly impacted upon those whose working or personal lives were already incredibly challenging.

“We can’t wait to bring Christmas home for our winners, helping them to tick off every festive job they have as well as delivering a few little surprises. We fully expect to hear inspiring and heartwarming stories from communities nationwide and I’m sure whittling the entries down to six incredible individuals will be a hard task; myself and our partners at Alzheimer’s Society, Save the Children and Teenage Cancer Trust can’t wait to start reading the nation’s nominations.”
