Shake My Hand For A Grand

Shake My Hand For A Grand

It’s radio’s easiest competition.

There’s no complicated questions or expensive text entries.

Simply shake Claire or David’s hand and you could be in with the chance of winning £1000!

It could be at an event. It could be in Asda. Doesn’t matter where! Shake Claire or David’s hand and you’ll be in with the chance of winning the grand!

We’ll be sending Claire and David out and about the North East so keep listening to Original 106 to find out where they will be.

The following rules are together with, and in addition to, Original 106’s Competition Terms and Conditions.

Anyone who enters the Competition (an “Entrant”) will be deemed to have understood these rules along with the Terms and Conditions and will be bound by them.


To enter “Shake My Hand For A Grand”, an entrant must have met either Claire and/or David in person and shaken their hand between 00:00 on Saturday 5th October 2019 and 23:59 on Thursday 24th October 2019.

After shaking their hand, the entrant will be handed a card with full entry details including a web page form where they must provide all requested details. The entrant must fill out their details by 23.59 on Thursday 24th October 2019 to be eligible to win the prize. The entrant must also retain the card as they will be required to surrender this as proof of entry in order to win the prize.

Entrants are required to respect the privacy of Claire and David, who reserve the right to deny participation of any potential entrant at any time during the competition period.

On the morning of Friday 25th October 2019, Claire and David will pick an entrant at random to win the prize. The entrant must answer their phone (calls going to voicemail will not qualify to win) and the selected entrant must subsequently produce their card in order to win the prize. If the entrant does not answer the phone call or is found to be unable to produce their card – another entrant will be selected. 

The winner will be drawn at random from all the entries.

The decision of Original 106 will be final in all matters relating to the competition activity.

Entrants contact details are not shared with any other third parties. See the DC Thomson privacy policy for more information.

Entrants must be aged 18 or over to enter.

Entrants must be a resident in the Original 106 transmission area and have a AB, DD9 or DD10 postcode.

Entrants cannot enter if they are an employee, freelance worker, or live with an employee or freelance worker of DC Thomson Media.

All participants must agree to being aired on the radio at any stage of the promotion and by taking part in this competition, the entrant will agree to the phone call being recorded, played out on air and used for promotional purposes including on air promotions at the discretion of Original 106.


If the selected entrant answers their phone during the final on Friday 25th October and is able to produce their card, they will win £1000.

Prize is as stated and will be paid by bank transfer, normally within a period of 28 days. There are no alternatives, nor will the prize amount be paid in cash.
