As we embarked on the summer of 2018, we welcomed the onset of the sun. It meant plenty of chances to get outside and enjoy riding a Hoverboard. Which is why on the 18th June, we held a competition on Facebook for someone to win an R1 Swegway Hoverboard of their choice.
The competition details
It was an easy one. In order to give the public and our loyal Facebook followers the chance to get their hands on a free hoverboard, all they had to do was enter our competition. All they had to do was let us know which colour R1 Hoverboard they’d like in the comments section and tag someone in their squad who’d love to join in the fun.
We ran the competition for just under a month, finishing on the 7th July. We had hundreds and hundreds of comments, over a thousand shares and for us this was good as we got to showcase the UK’s number one hoverboard to more people across the country. It did also add more competition though!
We received comment after comment and loved reading the reasons why people were entering. Some wanted a birthday present for a family member. Some just wanted an awesome hoverboard (who could blame them?). We wish we could give away lots more (but then we wouldn’t be the best business, would we?) as we do want to keep our Rolab family happy!
The winner revealed
As it happened, only one person could win. And that person was Tracey Butler. We gave her a massive congratulations for taking part and for winning the prize. In the comments section, when entering the competition, Tracey said she’d love to have a green R1 Hoverboard. Lucky for her, her wishes came true and as it happens, it was even luckier for Tracey’s daughter, who got the prize via her kind-hearted mum.
On Facebook, Tracey said “I have received my prize today and am over the moon. Thank you so much Rolab. My daughter is thrilled, you are superstars. I have never won anything before and I couldn’t have asked for better.”
Thank you, Tracey, for taking part! And we hope your daughter enjoys the R1 Hoverboard and has hours of fun on it.
If you want to see some pictures of the hoverboard, the grand unveiling, and the lucky winner’s beaming smile, don’t forget to check out our Facebook page. Tracey was kind enough to provide us with some pictures.
More competitions to come
It was nice to hear that this was Tracey’s first time at winning something like this. It just goes to show that it can happen to anyone. In fact, it could happen to someone again soon. Due to the popularity of the competition, we will be holding more in the future, giving more people the chance to get their hands on a unique Rolab Hoverboard. Which model? Well, you’ll just have to find out.
