Seven Sharp competition.
The Toe Toe family from Murupara won a West Coast getaway in Seven Sharp’s ‘Talk up your Town’ competition.
The competition, run in partnership with Development West Coast (DWC), asked viewers to send in videos talking up their towns.
The Toe Toe family’s video of Murupara won them an ultimate West Coast holiday package. The family of nine are currently travelling around the West Coast. Their West Coast adventure will be shown on Seven Sharp next week.
DWC Chief Executive Heath Milne met the family when they reached Greymouth.
“It was really good to meet Nadine and the rest of the family. Great people and a really deserving family,” says Mr Milne.
“We thank all the tourism operators who have gone out of their way to help put together such an amazing prize package.
“A special thanks also to Westport boy Phoenix Putaura who, along with Daimon Schwalger, produced a brilliant video promoting Westport to the rest of the Country.
“In recognition of Phoenix’s great work as an ambassador for the Coast, he’ll be joining the Toe Toe family during their day in Hokitika.
“If you bump into Nadine and the rest of the family during their travels don’t be shy to say hi and show them some West Coast hospitality.”
