MORE THAN 5,000 tickets were issued for a free prize draw as retailers in Barnard Castle said a 'thank-you' to customers for their support.

The draw was organised by the Barney Guild – the town's traders' association – and tickets were handed out between December 1 and 6.

The first prize, of £150 cash, was won by Adrian Dack, from Esperley.

A further 19 prizes were offered from a range of retailers. All winners have now been notified.
