Local Hull resident Gary Vickerton, 57, from Beverly has won TradePoint’s September £150K Vantastic Monthly Giveaway Competition. The monthly giveaway puts shoppers in with a chance to win a brand-new van if they shop at TradePoint twice in one month using their TradePoint card.
TradePoint launched the competition to reward customers by offering them the chance to win one of six brand new trading vans. Each month the competition is sponsored by a different brand including DeWalt, Dulux, Valspar, and Gyproc, with this month’s giveaway sponsored by Leyland Trade Paint.
This month's winner, Gary Vickerton is a domestic general builder and multi-trader who comes from four generations of builders including his brother Neil, 62 and his now retired father Brian, 82. Being part of the strong farming community in Beverly, Gary‘s building services have fared well during recent turbulent times.
Gary commented: “At the beginning of the first lockdown I broke my ankle whilst working by dropping a breeze block on my foot which meant the start of the pandemic was incredibly tough due to my injury. However, the wonderful thing about being part of such a strong community in Beverly is that everyone rallied round to support. Both customers and suppliers all stayed incredibly loyal while I recovered.
Gary will be using his brand-new Nissan Navara truck to spend more time with his family and friends and plans to keep the special van as his luxury item whilst keeping his older van for messy work jobs.
Gary said: “I’ve never won anything in my life! This van will be my pride and joy and I am incredibly grateful to Tradepoint. It has changed my life and will allow me to bring pleasure into my life now having the ability to travel, explore and go on adventures with family and friends, although it might take me a while getting used to an automatic drive!”
Claire Taylor – Commercial Trading Manager from TradePoint commented: “We want to reward our TradePoint Members this year to say thank you for their continued loyalty, especially after the pandemic, and what better way than by giving them the opportunity to win a brand-new van that they can be proud of when they arrive at their customers’ homes or sites. We loved seeing Gary’s face when we presented him with his new van, and we know there will be many more happy faces to come as we continue this monthly competition.”
Until the end of the year, TradePoint is giving customers the chance to win a new van each month. TradePoint shoppers must sign up to a TradePoint card and be logged in, and shop twice in a calendar month to be in with a chance to win one of the six new vans available.
