A woman from Ripon has scooped a VIP experience at Ripon Races as part of our latest competition.

Wendy Hunton, who lives in Littlethorpe, was named as our winner and will be heading to Ladies’ Day by helicopter.

The competition saw us team up with Ripon Races and Heli-jet Aviation to offer up the VIP experience to the first post-lockdown Ladies’ Day in the UK.

Wendy will be taking her daughter, her sister and her niece to the event on Thursday (17th June) after securing the day off work!

She said:

“We absolutely can’t wait, especially with Covid and everything that’s going on, we can’t wait, we’re buzzing and we’re really excited for it.”

Your Harrogate’s Nick Hancock chatted to Wendy – our big prize winner – ahead of Ladies’ Day:
