***Here at Inspired by Lakeland we hate waste. Therefore we are giving away a free Foods tea towel with every £15 spent. These are almost perfect tea towels...just a teeny tiny spelling mistake (bet you won't spot it!) means we will not sell them and hope our lovely customers might like them as a free gift. (Whilst stocks last.)***
