How to enter

  • To enter, entrants must share the specific Facebook post about the prize draw and tag the person they’d like to treat on Mother’s Day in the comment section on the same post

Winner Selection

  • Three winners will be selected through a random draw conducted by an independent person on 27 March (the ‘Draw’)
  • The three winners will be notified of the fact that they have won by 9am on 28 March via the original prize draw post on Facebook.
  • Each winner will then be required to private message FSS and provide the following information: their preferred restaurant choice (this must be a food hygiene ‘Pass’ establishment in Scotland – this can be searched using the tool on our website) and a UK postal address to send the prize vouchers to 
  • Prizes will be delivered as soon as possible – there’s no guarantee vouchers will arrive with the winners by Sunday 31 March 2019 (Mother’s Day), especially if the restaurant selected does not support digital vouchers (digital vouchers will be sent through Facebook Messenger)
  • The prize winners are responsible for securing their own reservation ahead of their visit to the food establishment of their choice
  • There’s no guarantee that the winners will secure a booking at their chosen establishment on Mother’s Day
  • FSS will use reasonable endeavours to contact each winner through the Facebook account used to enter the prize. If a winner does not respond within five working days of the first notification, then that individual forfeits the right to claim the prize and FSS is free to nominate another winner
  • In the event of unforeseen circumstances beyond reasonable control, FSS reserves the right to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the prize draw or these T&Cs, either in whole or in part, with or without notice
