Sadolin is marking the outdoor decorating season with a football giveaway to boost sales of its woodstains, varnishes, protective oils and preservative treatments.

All merchants and specialist decorating outlets registered with Sadolin’s golden ticket scheme are encouraged to participate in the scheme, which will run until 31 July, or until promotional stocks are exhausted.

Stockists will be able to offer woodcare customers buying five litres or more of any Sadolin product in one transaction a free Mitre football.

A registered stockist is required to place an order of at least 50 litres of Sadolin products during the promotional period, which must include 10 litres of Sadolin Superdec Opaque Wood Protection.

The stockist will in return receive a ‘golden ticket kit’ containing a poster and wobblers to promote the offer in-store, 10 Mitre footballs to give to Sadolin customers and a box of biscuits for its retail team. Each kit entitles entry to a prize draw to win £100 worth of vouchers.

The company is also offering automatic entry with each kit purchased to an additional 10-year golden ticket anniversary prize draw, with a winner drawn in September 2015. The 10 special gifts to be won include a 3D 55” curved TV, £1,000 worth of vouchers, a tablet device and a games station.
