No gift lasts as long as the memories made by being together there in person

Christmas is a time of year when we try to get together with friends and family, sometimes travelling hundreds of miles to celebrate the festive season and share gifts and love.

But just how far does your family or friendship group have to travel to get together?

National Express is offering you the opportunity to bring your family or friendship group together this year and make some lasting memories.

Are you spread out across the UK, with grandparents in a different city or siblings on the opposite side of the country?

Does it take miles and hours of travelling - and diary planning - to get you all in one place to celebrate the festive season?

We’re looking to bring together the nation’s most spread out family or friendship group and make it a season to be truly thankful for friends and family. This could be as simple as getting together for a meal or something more unusual such as completing a family tradition. All you have to do is tell us your story to be in with a chance of winning a very special prize.

The Prize

We’ll provide return coach travel to get a maximum of 10 people all together in one place, as well as £500 towards your festive celebrations.
