Estate agent hides ‘golden boards’ across Leeds with £2,000 holiday prize

People across Leeds could win a £2,000 holiday for spotting one of the 20 special golden boards dotted around outside homes across the city.

Estate agent HOP has now launched the competition and will be sharing clues of where they are on social media.

Those who spot the boards can enter the competition by taking a picture of the board and posting it on their Facebook or Instagram feed.

The company, which is committed to planting over 450 trees this year, is also planting a tree every time someone enters the competition.

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.”

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.

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.”

Participants should also 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.
