Family. Now there’s a word with a slightly different to each and every one of us.
Obviously there are common themes we all associate with family – support, shared memories, love, and probably the odd argument! – but every family is unique, and we all have our favourite things about ours, don’t we?
The Center Parcs ‘My Family’ campaign is all about celebrating what’s special about your own family. Maybe they’re really good at big happy mealtimes, or have the best dance moves at parties. Perhaps they’re word-perfect on your favourite song, tell the funniest jokes, or organise brilliant days out together. Or it might be the bigger stuff, like knowing how to cheer you up, or always stepping in when you need some help.
Whatever it is, Center Parcs wants to hear about it! Tell them your favourite thing about your family, and you could win a fabulous Center Parcs family break worth £500 for your efforts.
To enter the competition, all you need to do is make a short video explaining what your favourite thing about your family is, and why. Maybe you could involve the kids too; here’s what my two have to say about their favourite things…
J (4): “Mum’s hair. The hugs. Kisses!”
JD (8): “Everything, really. I love how you’re all always with me all the time, even when we’re not actually there in person. And I think we’re all really generous to each other. And I love that we go on holidays and bake together.”
If you need some more inspiration check out what some Center Parcs customers have to say on this video.
You don’t need to be a budding film director, and you don’t need a fancy camera; it’s your personal story that Center Parcs is interested in.
You can upload your entry to the Center Parcs Facebook or to your on Twitter profile, mentioning @CenterParcsUK and using the hashtag #CPMyFamily. Alternatively, you can email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entries can be submitted until Sunday 3rd April. After this date Center Parcs will select their favourites and put them forward for a public vote. The video with the most votes will win an amazing Center Parcs break for the entrant and their family.
So what are you waiting for – grab your camera and make some noise about why your family is so brilliant!
