Winner of the AutoCare Big Winter promotion has now been revealed: Fakenham resident, Graham Goodberry gets an early Christmas present for taking his car to his local garage – B C & R Car & Van Centre Ltd!
This very lucky AutoCare customer will be swapping his old car for a brand-new Citroën C3.
Graham Goodberry booked his car in at B C & R Car & Van Centre and he was the first out of the draw in the AutoCare Big Winter Giveaway; a prize-draw open to anyone who has taken their vehicle to an AutoCare garage between 1st October and 30th November for an MOT, Service or Repair.
He collected his brand-new Citroën C3 from his local AutoCare garage B C & R Car & Van Centre Ltd in Fakenham, after he was drawn from over 19,288 entries to win the top prize in AutoCare’s Big Winter Giveaway.
Graham and his wife Doreen have been taking their cars to B C & R Car & Van Centre Ltd for years. Hayley from the garage was particularly happy that one of their most loyal customers had won the car; she said, “We always get behind the AutoCare giveaways, as we are located in a very rural part of Norfolk we make sure everyone who visits the garage knows that they have the chance to win a prize. To help them we offer to enter on their behalf and hand them a leaflet to take away with them, this helped us get over 214 entries in the winter giveaway!”
Graham visited B C & R Car & Van Centre for a service on 30th November and was persuaded by the garage to enter online which he did just online just hours before the competition closed, he said, “We have never won anything, you always hear about other people winning, but you never think it will be you. My wife and I are so happy to have won and so grateful to the garage for telling us about the competition.”
Steve Johnson from B C & R Car & Van Centre’s parts distributor A.T. Johnson was at the car handover with Maria McCullough, AutoCare Garage Networks Manager, he added, “We are very pleased for both Mr & Mrs Goodberry and the garage. B C & R Car & Van Centre are a very good customer of ours, and fully embrace the AutoCare programme.
19,288 motorists entered the competition online after having a service, MOT or repair carried out at one of the 631 garages on the AutoCare network. No other garage network in the UK gives their garages the opportunity to offer their customers the chance to win a brand-new car.
Maria McCullough, also said: “These fantastic promotions that AutoCare run twice a year for all of their garages are a sound way to bring new business to the garages on the network and to give existing customers another reason to keep coming back.
I’m pleased to hear a loyal AutoCare customer won the car, but raising awareness about the quality of AutoCare garages amongst new customers is also what we achieve with this promotion. It’s phenomenal how this promotion is growing each year - over 19,000 motorists entered the Big Winter Giveaway which generated more than £2.8m for the network of garages."
