THE Herald Express today launches a once-in-a-lifetime competition — your chance to win a Great Gorilla.
The paper bought Vanilla Gorilla at auction to help support Paignton Zoo and now one lucky school is going to win him.
He was one of a set of colourfully decorated life-sized Great Gorillas to line the streets of Torbay this summer.
And as much as we love Vanilla, who currently hangs around the Herald Express reception cheering up customers, we bought him for you — and he is worth more than £3,000.
Over the past few weeks schools have been registering their interest in a chance to win Vanilla.
Between now and February 27 simply collect the coupons, like the one featured below.
The winning school will be the one with the highest coupon to student ratio — so there's every reason for smaller schools to take part.
Coupons should be handed to the schools themselves, who will send them in to us.
The winner will be announced on April 3 — and we'll even deliver Vanilla to you on the same day.
Our online readers can also vote now - one vote per computer - by clicking your school listed on the right hand side of this page
