Royal Mail has launched a festive competition for small businesses across the UK, with a chance to win £1,000.

Businesses can enter by either sharing a photo of their Christmas-themed shop window display on social media, or sharing what festive communications they have planned for their customers.

Two winners will be chosen when the competition closes on Sunday, 16 December, with the two runners up for each part of the competition receiving £500.

A spokesperson for Royal Mail said: “We support the growth of each and every small business that we have the opportunity to work with and pride ourselves on being the most reliable business partner to all.

“We’re delighted to be providing small businesses with the chance to win special prizes through our festive competition.”
