A NEW unusual Christmas gift is on offer in Somerset this year – a chance to win £1,000 and help a charity into the bargain.

Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance has launched a ‘Flight for Life’ lottery gift voucher offering entries in its weekly lottery draws to win £1,000.

Tracy Bartram, from the Air Ambulance, said: “Not only will you show your support but you are giving a loved one or friend the chance of winning a cash prize.”

Vouchers are available in different denominations – for details call 01202-849530.
