You could join £75 Cash in a Flash winners in this week’s Scunthorpe Telegraph
Twenty Scunthorpe Telegraph readers had reason to celebrate this week after winning the paper's Cash in a Flash competition.
Each won £75 after successfully identifying 15 Telegraph 75th anniversary logos in last week’s paper.
There is now another chance for readers to get their hands on the £75 prize. Another set of logos have been hidden in this week’s paper, with a further 20 readers able to share in £1,500.
Among the winners last week was regular reader Alice Farrell, 54, from Scunthorpe.

She said: “I have just come back from a week’s holiday in Spain so it will help to put a bit of money back in my pocket.”
Mrs Farrell, a regular reader of the Telegraph, said she was happy with the weekly format.
“When it went weekly, I was a bit upset as I used to pick up a copy of the Telegraph every night, as I liked to read up on all the gossip, like who had been to court,” she said.
“I have got used to it now and I get the people at the Post Office to save me a copy on my way to work and I really enjoy reading it.”
Another avid Telegraph reader was successfully picked as a winner.
Linda Clark, 70, from Scunthorpe, said she could not live without the paper.
Mrs Clark said: “It is very nice, but unexpected news.
“I avidly read the Telegraph. I always bought it when it was daily and read it cover to cover.
“The weekly Telegraph has taken some getting used to.
“It takes me longer to get through it now. I could not live without it.”
Maurice Tomlinson, 76, from Scotter, also welcomed the news.
“I am a pensioner, so anything like this is great news,” he said.
“You will always welcome £75, especially at my age.”
The competition is a thank you to readers of the Telegraph for their continued support as the paper celebrates its 75th year. The closing date for this week’s competition is Sunday evening, with the winners announced in next week’s paper.
Many of those lucky enough to win said they would be using the money to help treat other people.
Clair Johnson, correct27, from Scunthorpe, said: “My mum saw it in the Telegraph and told me to enter. I never usually enter these competitions, so it is great to win, but I think I will need to buy my mum a drink to say thank you.”
Joan Matthews, 66, from Scunthorpe, said: “I am going on holiday to Majorca as soon as I have got grandchildren over there, so it will be nice to get them a little treat.”
“We get the Telegraph delivered every week. It has taken quite a bit of getting used to, but now that I have, I like it.”
John East, 45, from Scunthorpe was another Telegraph reader to correctly guess the number of logos in last week’s paper.
“I think I will use the money to treat the kids,” he said.
The Telegraph is celebrating its 75th birthday, having formed on September 8, 1937, as the Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph. The newspaper then became known as the Scunthorpe Telegraph in 2002.
As part of the Cash in a Flash campaign, some of the lucky winners will get the opportunity to step in to a Grab A Grand machine to win a potential £1,000. The air-blown machine is similar to that used in TV show The Crystal Maze.
