After receiving over 500 entries to win the Roman Road E2 Valentine’s Hamper our cupids could only pick one winner. Halima Mostofa (right) was our lucky-in-love winner who received the prize worth over £450 just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Halima told us: ‘I have lived in the area all my life and I never normally win things. The shopkeeper persuaded me to fill in a flyer and I was so surprised when I got the email saying I had won!’
The Roman Road E2 Valentine hamper was filled to the brim with the best products available from the shops and traders of Globe Town.
