Zopa's marvellous Marmite giveaway!

Posted on 16 Aug 2010 by Adam

Roll up, Roll up!

Zopa is holding its very own marvellous Marmite giveaway tomorrow!

Starting from 10am we will be announcing one question, every hour until 5pm.

The questions will be posted both here, and on our Twitter @Zopa

To enter, all you need to do is submit your answer via a comment below or via an @ or DM message on Twitter. Once the next question is submitted we won’t accept entries for the previous question - A winner for each question will be selected at random by our unique winner selecting machine, conveniently named “Jenny’s Hat”.

“What do I win?” I hear you yell. Well, my curious little nipper, you must have heard about the day we had Marmite chocolate? Each lucky winner will win their very own bar of the chocolately Marmite goodness, and some Zopa stickers!

Good luck!
