Star Radio NE announces £10,000 giveaway
Darlington-based Star Radio is to give away a ten thousand pound prize to one listeners in a duck race.
Leading up to the main event on 13th May, the station is giving listeners and Facebook fans the chance to win their own racing duck.
100 plastic ducks will then race down the River Skerne in the town’s South Park on 13th May, with the first duck to cross the finishing line winning £10k for its owner.
Its the second year the station has done the promotion. Managing Director Mark Reason told us: “As a UKRD station we love changing people’s lives and last year’s £10K Duck Race did just that. The winner was a local listener called Val I’Anson who had always dreamed of setting up her own business. With the £10,000 she won from Star Radio, that dream became a reality!”
After last year’s success, the station has created a human-sized station mascot called ‘Ziggy StarDuck’. Star Radio says their £10,000 prize will be the biggest giveaway in the North East this year.
