TIMES are tough and finding cash to buy presents for the family and enjoy a festive feast on Christmas Day can be stressful.

Central Telegraph has joined with 11 local businesses to make Christmas more joyous for one lucky family. We are giving away $500 for a reader to spend at the participating business, with a chance for that $500 to boosted up to $800.

To enter, simply cut out the coupon at the bottom of Page 7, fill in the details and post it to Central Telegraph, PO Box 120, Biloela 4715.

If the winning entry also contains a recent receipt of purchase from one of the participating stores, the $500 prize will become $800.

Central Telegraph managing editor Cameron McCrohon said the Santa's Stash of Cash giveaway had run successfully for many years in the mid-2000s.

"Given the increased cost of living, we thought this year would be ideal time to resurrect the competition," Mr McCrohon said.

"In previous years, the competition attracted thousands of entries from all corners of the Banana Shire, with the lucky winners spending their prize on groceries, furniture, fuel and electrical appliances.

"The best thing about the competition is that it's free to enter - easy work for a chance to win $800," he said.

This year's 11 participating businesses are: Biloela Discount Chemist; Biloela Family Pharmacy; Biloela Screens and Awnings; Callide Coaches; Caltex Space Service Station and Caravan Park; CV Auto Tyre Power; Home Hardware; Loulas; Ranbuild; Red Steer; and TBL Advantage
