Scruffs offers more than £1,200 worth of prizes in Christmas giveaway


Manchester-based pet bed specialists Scruffs has announced the return of its annual social media mass giveaway event this December.

Scruffs® will give away more than £1,200 worth of products (RRP) during the 15-day event, running from today (Thursday) until december 13.

A company spokesperson for Scruffs said: "’Scruffsmas’, as it’s known to our followers, is our favourite time of year and one of the most opportune times in which we are able to give something back to our community of fans.


"This year, we’re thrilled to be able to offer a range of fan-favourite Scruffs beds, along with new product launches which will be revealed along the way. We’re looking forward to everyone joining in with the festive fun."

The company has given away more than £4,000 worth of stock in Christmas giveaways alone in the past five years.


In 2015 the company notably donated a Grizzly Bear Bed (RRP: £199.99) to Border Collie Rescue UK as part of their Christmas event. In 2017 it ran a 10-day giveaway event which amassed to £1,000 worth of prizes during the festive period.
