Australia-bound IT consultant Adam Trutwein is offering a once-in-a-lifetime chance for someone to live an up-market London lifestyle for free, by offering up almost everything he owns as a prize in a ‘how many sweets in the jar’ competition!

Up for grabs for a lucky winner in the £20 per entry competition, is a luxury £375,000 fully furnished, two-bedroom apartment in London’s trendy Islington.
The apartment, which would be mortgage-free for the winner, is for keeps and is packed full of high-spec goodies such as a 50" HD plasma TV and hand-made Italian furniture.

The winner literally won’t have to spend a penny as full running costs and bills are thrown in for a year – from Sky HD subscriptions and utility bills, to groceries - and there’s even the service of a cleaner!

Adam, 26, explained that he came up with the quirky life-changing package idea after deciding to leave his top city-based IT career behind to follow his own dreams of a fresh start in Australia.

He said: "Making the move to Australia is a fresh start for me and I thought it would be a great idea to offer someone the opportunity to change their life too, particularly as everything seems to be a struggle at the moment.

"Offering up everything I own in a competition provides a wonderful opportunity for someone to kick-start their life in London – be that a new career, a year off having fun, helping out your son/daughter or simply getting that crucial first step on the property ladder.

"The package really does include everything – there’s even a free pass for underground and bus travel thrown in for a year, £200 a week for 1 year in cash and the use of an on-site gym."

Adam has put the competition in the hands of London solicitors Turbervilles who hold the sealed jar of sweets. All the cash raised will be held by Barclays Bank until the winner is announced.

A total of 30,000 tickets are up for grabs at £20 a go through his website The closing date will be when the 30,000 tickets are sold or 30th July 2010, whichever comes first.

Adam, originally from Gillingham, added: "The chance of winning this competition far outweigh the odds of winner the national lottery!"
