Throughout the 2019 season we’ll be running a fantastic photo competition. All you need to do is send us your best photos from your walking or cycling trip with Sherpa Van, along with a quote for each photo describing where and when it was taken, and any other information or thoughts you’d like to include to convey the moment caught on camera.
Each month from April to October 2019, we’ll pick our favourite photo, and the lucky winners will receive an exclusive Sherpa Van branded neck warmer.
In November, at the end of the season, we’ll pick our favourite photo of the year from all of the monthly winners, and the overall winner will receive a voucher for 10 free baggage movements to use in 2020.
