Prize draw update: 22 March

The prize draw update is back at its usual time this week, and one branch has leapt up the rankings since the last update.

Special congratulations are due to the Cheshire Police branch who managed to achieve sign up a whopping 20.6% of their members since the last update, launching themselves into first place in the Medium branches category and fifth place overall.

This week saw Strathclyde University branch become the first branch to have signed up more than 50% their members. They remain in first place in both the overall competition and the Small branches category.

There’s also been change at the top of the Large branches category, with Liverpool Acute Hospitals branch finally deposing Shropshire General from the top spot.

We’d also like to give a shout out to the University of South Wales, Northumberland and Bridgend branches for being the most active on twitter with the prize draw. Remember everyone that there is a prize for the best branch on twitter using the #heartunison hashtag!
