The excitement of signing for a new house is something that all students look forward to. It marks the start of an exciting year of living with friends and making memories as they enjoy student life. Our Parklane Selfie Sign Up competition added to the excitement of signing with us as students got the opportunity to win £500, by simply doing what students do best and taking a quick selfie in our office!
This year we congratulate a group of friends from Leeds Becket University, crowning them as the winners of our 2016 Selfie Sign Up competition! The prize will be enjoyed by a group of five students: 20-year-old, physical activity and health student, Jordan; 20-year-old Primary Education student, Jen; Sport Science student, Aaron; Graphic Design student, Paul; and 22-year-old Maths student, Pete. These lucky housemates gave there all by striking a pose for the camera as they signed for a year’s tenancy with us here in our Headingly office.
Our Selfie Sign Up competition really did challenge each group of housemates to ‘get their thinking caps on’ (or more like their swimming cozzies on in our winning houses case) to create the winning selfie! It seems that the trick was to do something different, as groups of housemates were in competition to rack up the most Facebook likes and shares for their Parklane selfie.
The group of Leeds Beckett students didn’t fail to show their fun and vibrant personalities as they got creative with props to get the most likes and shares, to eventually have it go viral on their social media channels. Their set of fun poses obviously worked, with both the shares and likes reaching triple figures – an impressive 110 shares and 100 likes were received for their top efforts!
Our winners have decided to split the £500 so that each person can decide what to spend their £100 on. With there being a lot of sporty interest in the household, particularly with Jordan, Aaron and Pete regularly training and competing for the Leeds Beckett Triathlon team, it’s likely that this extra cash would help them with this.
With the summer well under way for students, it’s a perfect time to win some extra dosh. Other thoughts in the house are to either save the money for travelling in the future or to put the money towards this year’s summer adventures. All five in the house are jetting off somewhere nice this summer. Aaron’s travelling around Europe and Jordan is using the money a little closer to home, as he plans to make more trips to the Lake District to see his girlfriend before the next university year starts…Awwwwwwh!
The winners tell us that they love their ‘lush pad’ with Parklane as it’s a brand new property with fresh and modern furnishing. Plus, it’s great location in Headingly puts them right in the centre of Leed’s student hub!
Congratulations Jordan, Jen, Paul, Aaron and Pete – enjoy your prize and have a great summer! We hope that you’re winning selfie now sits proudly on your mantel piece!
