Just to remind you all that the last few days of the fantastic competitions out there are ending on Dec 1st.

First up we have the Parrot Zoo – Poly Wants a Cracker huge draw. With 15 prizes and only a few hundred entrants you have a pretty good chance. We know the pay pal option is a little sticky, but it’s out of our hands and has held a few people up, but we decided to make it part of the competition – πŸ˜‰

Click here to enter.

Second is the Why Do We Read ultimate magic book comp. Win the incredible TASCHEN book of MAGIC 1400s-1950s, signed by Derren Brown himself and priced at a whopping £130 at the Taschen store – it’s a prize that any fan of magic would dream of owning. We’ve been told this is a very difficult competition and so entrant numbers are very low.

Click here to enter.

Any issues regarding these competitions please contact the relevant sites as they are not controlled by us. Good Luck (if you believe in that sort of thing).

So am now going to keep absolutely everything crossed until the winner(s) are announced!! πŸ˜€

Bloody typical – our servers went down just before db tweeted about the comp.
All back to normal now so get your entries in before the 1st Dec!
Any donations after the date will still be welcomed but you wont be entered into the draw.
Good luck!
