We’ve just launched another huge giveaway game – just because we love you

The look of love is in our eyes and we're looking right at you, dear readers. It's true – we really, truly love you. That's why from February 14 – Valentine's Day, in case you forgot – until Thursday February 16, we're showering you with gifts. Forget the mushy cards and long-stemmed roses, we're giving you the opportunity to take part in another huge giveaway game so you can share the love.


Note: if you haven’t yet found all of the candy hearts, we’ve made it easier for you! Keep searching – the more you find, the more chances you have to win. 

Whether you like the celebration or not, the thrill of getting a secret Valentine is hard to beat. And this Valentine’s Day, we choo-choo-choose you! The Weekend Edition is getting ready to launch an exciting game with its readers – a little game called Share the Love. Starting from Valentine’s Day, Tuesday February 14, until Thursday February 16, readers have the chance to join in a scavenger hunt on The Weekend Edition websites, hunting for randomly placed candy hearts that will reveal one of eight different types of love each attached to one of three amazing prizes.

So how can you play? All you need to do is visit The Weekend Edition between 10:00 am Tuesday February 14 and 5:00 pm Thursday February 16. As you search through the site, you’ll find randomly placed candy hearts in a number of stories. Simply click on the candy heart to reveal your type of love, which will prompt you to share the love and send someone special a Valentine, giving you an entry into the competition. Remember to keep searching – you’ll have up to 80 chances to win. Here’s what you can find …
