The very last giveaway starts today. Start searching now ▶

And here’s Sophia’s email she’s penned for us!

Today I’m feeling hopeful,
That my luck will strike gold.
I’m hunting for a guinea,
Let the mystery unfold.
I start at the chocolate,
Those strawberries tempting me.
I’m distracted, I am hungry,
And I need a cup of tea.
Moving swiftly o’er to biscuits,
Black peppercorn – how odd?
Sea salt and caramel, more my thing,
But still no sign of gold.
Onward bound to condiments,
But then an email comes in.
‘You’ve won!’, says Josh, I check it twice
My head is in a spin.
The timing is so spooky,
This poem here, half done.
And at the page I’ve landed,
When you tell me that I’ve won.
And there it is – that shining coin,
Bouncing round so merrily.
‘I’ll send this anyway’ I think,
Not to win, but to show I’m happy.
