Golden Charter, the UK's leading pre-paid funeral plan provider, is appearing at this year's Ideal Home Show between 27th and 30th May in Glasgow's SECC for a second consecutive year.

Set across 20,000 square metres, the show has six dedicated areas of the home under one roof, with over 400 exhibitors to give visitors the ultimate shopping experience. Representatives from Golden Charter will be on hand at stand S132 to offer advice on its range of later life planning products and services including pre-paid funeral plans, Will writing, Powers of Attorney, Probate and Asset Protection.

Karen Trickett, Director of Marketing at Golden Charter, said: "Whether it's writing or updating your Will, considering ways to protect your assets, or organising a funeral plan, many of us don't get around to making arrangements for the future. But we should. At Golden Charter we believe that everyone should plan ahead and that by doing so they can save their families (and themselves) unnecessary grief and expense.

"With a comprehensive range of products and services aimed at helping people plan ahead, we believe that every household across the UK should have at least one Golden Charter product.

"Come along and speak to one of our advisors for the inside scoop on how we can help you plan ahead for the future. It promises to be a great day out and, among other things, we will be offering FREE ice-cream to visitors to our stand!"

Golden Charter's presence at the Ideal Home Show is part of a wider integrated campaign which aims to raise awareness of the brand as well as the products and services it offers. With all messaging centred around the slogan, 'Do something amazing', the campaign will include TV, radio and digital display.

As an exhibitor at the show we're giving away five pairs of tickets. All you have to do is send your name, address and telephone number to competition@goldencharter.co.uk  before 1pm on Wednesday 25th May 2016. Winners will be notified by email later that day. All data collected will only be used for entry to the competition and you will not receive marketing correspondence.

We'll also be running a prize draw at the show where one lucky winner can win a £250 M&S shopping spree. Just visit us at stand S132 in the Ideal Shopping section for details on how to enter.
