You and a loved one could be jetting off to Jamaica for seven nights.

How do you fancy spending 7 nights in a luxury Jamaican resort with miles of soft, white-sand beaches, turquoise sea and delicious food? Thanks to Sandals Resorts, you and a partner could be heading off to sunny Jamaica.

We’ll fly you both from London Gatwick. You’ll stay in a deluxe room with a king size bed at Sandals Negril Resort & Spa, with 7 miles of beautiful beach just steps away. You can take your pick from 7 restaurants – including gourmet seafood cuisine right on the beach – as well as mouth-watering flavours from around the world. All your meals – plus premium house wines and spirits – are included.

After relaxing on the beach you can visit the fitness centre, play tennis or try your hand at kayaking. And if you are already a PADI qualified scuba diver you can also make the most of up to two free scuba dive trips per day. In the evening, you can chill out in one of the resort’s pools or enjoy nightly parties, including reggae and carnival vibes.

For your chance to win, text JAMAICA to 84850.

Texts cost your standard network rate, plus once you've entered we'll do the bit that raises money for all those good causes and automatically take a donation of £3, unless you text CANCEL as instructed in the first text message we send you. 100% of your donation will go to Global's Make Some Noise. You must be 18 or over to take part. UK mobile only.
