We’ve got your chance to win a massive £2,500! And the best part… we’ll pay it in time for the Easter Weekend.

To get yourself in the draw to win, answer this question:

In which country is the Leaning Tower of Pisa?

If you think you know, text the word MONEY, followed by your answer to 65588.

Texts cost £1.50 + 1 standard network rate message. Lines will close at 8pm on Wednesday April 17.

If you text after that you won’t be entered but may still be charged. 18+ only.

Congratulations to Danica Youel, who won £3,000 in our Midweek Money competition in March! She’s spending the cash on a holiday in the sun.
