Real Radio has given away two cheques for £50,000 to a couple of listeners in Scotland and the North West of England.
Fifty Grand Friday, a competition sponsored by Subway Stores, saw listeners in Scotland and England and Wales, compete for a place in the grand finals for a chance to win the massive prize.
Paul Lemon from East Kilbride took home the £50,000 from Real Radio Scotland, and Adrian Thompson from Royton took the big prize for England and Wales. In the video you can see how Adrian was in the network studio when he won £50k and later went to the Cash Machine to see his money had arrived.
Across the month of September all Real Radio breakfast shows played a daily ‘Fact or Fiction’ competition, with each week’s winner going forward to the grand finals, hosted by Real Radio Breakfast with Ewen and Cat in Scotland and Darren Parks on the All Request Workday in England and Wales.
Chris Stevens, Deputy Group Programme Director for Real Radio said, “Giving away £100,000 in one day was just phenomenal. £50,000 is a massive amount of money for each winner to take home and potentially change their lives; I know they are still taking in what has happened to them and I’m sure over the course of the coming weeks, will decide how to spend their winnings!”
This is the second time Real Radio has given away £50k this year; Gillian Tetlow from Fife (now residing in St Helens), won the same amount in June, in the Fifty Grand Friday competition which then ran across the Real Radio network, UK Wide.
