This is your chance to escape on a dream holiday for two to the beautiful island of Mauritius.

Thanks to Flight Centre, you could be enjoying seven nights in a Prestige Ocean View Room, with a balcony overlooking the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

Your holiday at the InterContinental Resort will be all-inclusive, so you can take your pick from four restaurants. There’s also the sauna, steam room and whirlpool bath to help you relax and unwind.

Once you’ve wined and dined, you can take a dip in one of the two infinity pools and sip cocktails, with panoramic views of the bay.

Our concierge team will be on-hand to help advise you on how best to explore the island, including the pristine beaches, lagoons and coral reefs. Or enjoy a range of water sports. Return economy flights are also included.

For your chance to win, text the word BEACH to 84850.

Entries close at midday on 11th October. Keep your phone handy, we may be calling you. 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. You’re playing across all participating radio stations, a list of which can be found below with age and date restrictions and full Ts&Cs
