Leeds Building Society celebrated the 2021 Super League and 15 years sponsoring Leeds Rhinos with an exclusive giveaway. There was a chance to win one of 15 match day hampers including signed Leeds Rhinos merch, a £40 Just Eat voucher and a full to the brim 18 inch Great Yorkshire Hamper.
The history of the Christmas hamper teaches us that the holidays are just as much about giving as receiving. The concept of hampers was first introduced to England by France and gained popularity during the Victorian period. The wicker basket filled with delicious and savoury treats dates back to 1066 when William the Conqueror ruled Britain.
With the crisis COVID-19 has brought into the mix, many local businesses face expanding competition from a growing number of big-box stores and online retailers. Shopping locally has never been more important.
