A NEW competition has been launched by two Barrow business owners who say the prizes are set to get bigger and bigger. 

Siobhan Rooke, 37, and Kade Kendall, 37, have already launched a plethora of successful businesses in the region.

Siobhan, who owns Hustle, the studio and Kade, who is behind the 24-hour Transformation Unit gym, recently got together to launch the venture.

Siobhan said: "We have been best friends for over ten years and we both have backgrounds in business and we said we would do something. We had the idea to set up the competition so we went for it - we're a bit like that."

The pair approached other local businesses such as Matt Johnson Prestige Cars, Carpet World, Hays Travel, Swiss Timepieces and Barrow Eats who were all delighted to get on board.

Kade said: "Siobhan and I have set this up out of our own pockets and we're so thankful to have these great businesses on board who have put their trust in us and to have their backing."

The competitions were launched at the beginning of the month and have already amassed 3.5k followers on the Play Competitions Facebook and 1.5k followers on Instagram. 

Giveaways so far have included many cash prizes during each competition ranging from £25 to £250 and hundreds of pounds worth of vouchers from the likes of JD, Smyths Toys, Barrow Eats and Amazon.

Contestants have been asked to comment and share to enter and the duo has done random free, cash giveaways with winners revealed in live draws on Facebook.

The pair regularly engage with their followers and hold online surveys to see what people would like to see next.

Kade added: "We know times are hard at the moment and we just want to give something back to local people.

"Christmas is just around the corner and we're set to launch a brand new website next week.

"The prizes and cash giveaways are set to get bigger and someone could really appreciate the likes of a PS5, a Smyths Toys voucher or a cash giveaway. 

"Participants can opt to be anonymous too so if they win, their name won't be posted and we offer cash alternatives for each prize.

"We've really researched what people and what other competitions have failed to do to try and give local people the best. 

"Siobhan and I have really used our extensive clientele to help too. We don't believe that anyone in the area is doing it quite like us - we're not here to take part, we're here to take over."
