Not even the snow will stop us!
One week in to our road trip and the country has come to a standstill with blankets of snow! But that isn’t stopping our Woolies’ road trip team, who are touring the country with the largest ever pass the parcel!
Freezing conditions have been doing their best to hamper our journey, but we’ve made it to our first four destinations – Liverpool, Aberaeron in Wales, Dudley and Littlehampton, bringing presents, pic n’ mix and festive cheer to so many families. The bitter weather has meant that we have had to divert our journey from Ashford to Buckinghamshire today. Because we hadn’t planned to stop in Buckhinghamshire, we literally spotted and surprised a local family whilst passing through their town and parked up by their house to let their little girl, Abi, be the fifth person to tear one giant layer off our record breaking parcel. The surprise was a really wonderful moment; this sort of thing is what the magic of Woolies is all about.
Stan and Ollie, Woolies’ playful snowmen, were delighted to give Abi such a happy Christmas surprise.
We’re continuing our drive further north tonight, heading to Leeds, weather permitting!
