May bank holiday offers and ideas

theatreLast week we took a look at offers for your garden, and this time round we’re looking at offers and ideas for the next bank holiday (remember, we have one on May 6 and another on May 27).

There’s no need to scratch your head for something to do this year.

In fact, there are even some special treats below which won’t break the bank, thanks to some fantastic bank holiday offers from Give as you Live retailers.

Booking a short break or family day out is a great way to ensure that three-day break feels a lot longer.

LateRooms is currently offering a “75% off bank holiday sale“. If you’re signed up to Give as you Live you’ll have probably been told about this in your weekly shopping email, and the offer is still running. 2.5% also goes to your chosen cause through Give as you Live.

Lastminute.com is offering a May Fever Sale on theatre tickets. A great way to spend a little time with a loved one over the Bank Holiday weekend. And up to 6.5% goes to your cause.
