Bells jingling all the way from Toby to Lapland

Bells jingling all the way from Toby to Lapland

Toby Carvery's Christmas campaign has been gathering momentum since it launched in November and one lucky family has now scooped the top accolade.

Toby played host to the 'Toby's Got Talent' competition via Facebook to encourage guests to submit videos of their special talent in return for the chance to win a fantastic family trip to Lapland.

There were lots of amazing entries - everything from singing to street dance, playing of instruments to a vegetable carving artist. But Toby Facebook fans voted with their feet and chose Ruth Smith's daughter doing the hula whilst reciting "I love Toby Carvery" over and over.

Ruth commented: "This is an amazing prize and we're really excited about going to Lapland. I never thought I'd win, but we're absolutely over the moon and can't wait to go."

The family will be treated to activities such as a snowmobile search for Santa's log cabin home, a husky sled ride and for the kids, a souvenir 'driving licence' for reindeer and huskies.

The Facebook activity has engaged Toby fans in a new and fun way, bringing with it a multitude of content that adds richness to Toby's Facebook pages. Anyone wishing to take a look at the various entries and try their hand at showing off a talent of their own can do so here.
