Estate agent HOP is offering eagle eyed Leeds residents the chance to win a £2,000 holiday if they spot one of 20 special golden boards located outside homes across the city. The company is also planting a tree every time someone enters the competition.
HOP’s special golden competition boards have been interspersed with the hundreds of purple boards that the company has across Leeds and beyond.
Anyone who spots a golden board can enter the competition by taking a photo of the board and posting it on their Facebook or Instagram feed. Entrants need to use the hashtag #HOPGoldenBoard and tag one of HOP’s pages on either Facebook or Instagram.
Participants can enter each time they track down a different golden board, and the competition will run until midnight on the 20 May 2022. A winner will be chosen at random shortly after this date.
HOP has also committed to planting over 450 trees this year, with one tree being planted for each competition entry, as well as every board that goes up during the competition dates.
As part of the green initiative, HOP has partnered with GreenTheUK, which connects businesses with local wildlife projects and works in partnership with the Royal Forestry Society (RFS) planting thousands of climate resilient trees across the UK.
Luke Gidney, managing director at HOP, said: “We’re very excited to launch this competition with 20 of our special golden boards now sitting outside various HOP properties throughout Leeds, waiting to be discovered and photographed.
“We’ll also be posting clues about their locations on Facebook and Instagram over the coming weeks, so we’d advise anyone who wants to play to follow our social media pages. Participants can enter the competition each time they find a board, so anyone who finds them all will have 20 chances of winning.
“Joining forces with GreenTheUK is also a great opportunity for competition entrants, home sellers, landlords and ourselves, to support our local community with a wonderful green initiative. We’re estimating that we can plant more than 450 trees over the next three months which will be a brilliant achievement and a great way of giving back to our local environment and its wildlife.”
Ed Caldecott, CEO of GreenTheUK, said: “We partner with all types of ambitious and forward-thinking UK businesses to support local wildlife projects with measurable impact. We are really looking forward to working with HOP and planting hundreds of trees in the local area.”
