H&T Pawnbrokers, with over 70 London stores, is a keen supporter of local events. In the run up to the Notting Hill Carnival, budding photographers can take their chances in the H&T Carnival Photography competition.
Participants are encouraged to send in carnival photos which represent the competition title ‘Golden Selfie’. This can relate to jewellery, costumes, people or even food! A golden jewellery voucher worth £100 will be awarded to the photo which represents this title in the most creative way. Entries to be submitted by end of day Friday 29th August via H&T Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/HTHand

Regional Manager Mark Harrold says: ‘We love to celebrate local events alongside our customers, especially one so big as the Notting Hill Carnival. So many visitors to our store are regulars, and we’re sure they enjoy coming to see us for one of our fun days. And to all the new customers out there – we look forward to welcoming you!’
In addition, H&T Pawnbrokers are running some promotions alongside the carnival celebrations. Customers who visit the London stores, with the reference ‘carnival fun’, can take advantage of:
- free jewellery cleaning, to make you sparkle
- a 10% discount on competitively priced jewellery

Harrold continues, ‘Everyone looks forward to the bank holiday weekend, and we think this is a great opportunity for a treat over the carnival week. Come and join in our events and enter our photography competition, one lucky winner will walk away with a golden voucher to spend in store!’
