Every month until December Stork is giving away R2 500! Congratulations to V Sewdan from Scottburgh, our previous winner.


Buy any Stork BAKE brick, SMS the words STORK BAKE5, plus the last 5 digits of your Stork Bake barcode followed by your name and surname to 34923 by 5 pm on 25 November 2011. Each SMS costs R1,50. There’s no limit to the number of entries – you may enter once for each Stork BAKE brick you buy (hang on to the barcode in case you win).
