All you have to do is cut out the coupon from the June 26 2014 edition of the paper and take it to the Gardens Lane centre to use at its coffee lounge sessions, held Monday to Friday, from 9am to 4pm.

The coupon is valid from Thursday, June 26, until Wednesday, July 2.

Centre manager Lee-Ann Clark, 32, of Doncaster, urged readers to take advantage of the offer.

She said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to get something for free.

“Our coffee lounge is very popular and I would invite people to come along and have a look. There is always plenty going off at the centre every week with our tea dances, exercise classes and much more.

“We have a footfall of more than 1000 each week. It is so nice to see a community centre thriving when we are in times of financial difficulty.”

Meanwhile, other business owners who have teamed up with us for the Owt Fer Nowt offer have told how the scheme has been a success.

Phil Toone, who gave away dog chews from his Mexborough market stall, said: “I had about 30 people take up the offer. It is a good campaign, it gets new customers into the business along with existing ones aswell.”

Flower stall owner Bev Taylor added: “Any sort of free promotion is worth doing, especially when businesses and markets are trying to get more trade in at times like this.”

Kyle Rberts, 27, of the Coffee Pot Cafe in Mexborough, said: “This is a great freebie offer for your readers.”
