It came as a lovely surprise for Mr Champman, the winner of the guess the position of the Snowball competition, learning that he had won. The hamper, his prize for guessing the nearest position of the snowball, was full of Extra Special goodies: from Mince Pies to a cheese board. There was everything there that would make his Christmas 'Extra Special' this year. All the money raised will go to the local children's charity, Jessie May, which is based near the store. The charity provides care to terminally ill children in the community and support for their family.
