Nicky has our support in the bag

We’ve already distributed masses of high quality Vote Nicholas McDonald posters, and this week we’ve teamed up with Motherwell Shopping Centre to offer readers something special in time for the X-Factor final.

Everyone who wishes the local boy well in his bid to take the ultimate TV talent title will want to own this cracking FREE* shopping bag.

It’s perfect for taking the groceries home - and for showing your support for the biggest local musical success since Neil Reid won Opportunity Knocks.

In addition to our fabulous shopping bags you can also grab yourself a leaflet from the ‘Nicky’ bus which contains travel discount vouchers which can save you and your family £££’s on First Buses,

Our recent visits to the shopping centre - where we regularly canvas readers’ opinions - have shown local support is at fever pitch as the minutes tick away towards Saturday’s three-cornered contest between Nicky, Sam Bailey and Luke Friend.

But once that grand finale has been played out our fabulous I Love Nicky bag will be a great souvenir of a contest virtually guaranteed to give Nicholas a major career in music to look forward to.

The Motherwell Times and Bellshill Speaker street team will be near Argos in the shopping centre along with the special ‘Vote Nicky’ bus from 11am to 2pm on Friday. First Lanarkshire have been 
supporting our ‘Vote Nicky’ campaign and our posters have been seen by our local community throughout Lanarkshire.

So come on down and say hello, buy a paper and grab a free* limited edition shopping bag.
