Walkers Garage, based in South Otterington near Northallerton, is celebrating after being named the national winner of the Ring Golden Bulb Grand Prize, which will see the company receive more than £1,000 worth of workshop equipment and accessories.
The Golden Bulb Campaign, hosted by Ring the vehicle lighting, workshop equipment and vehicle accessories supplier to the aftermarket, launched in August and attracted hundreds of entries from workshops and garages throughout the country.
The prize package for Walkers Garage includes inspection lights, battery care equipment, vehicle lighting and accessories including dash cameras.
Service Manager at Walkers Garage, Steve Shaw, comments: “I am both delighted and still coming to terms with actually winning something, I am usually one of those people that never does. I had to speak to our local motor factor to make sure I hadn’t misunderstood. I can’t believe we have all of this Ring equipment free, it’s going to really support the technicians that work here.”
Marketing Manager at Ring, Henry Bisson, comments: “With faulty bulbs up there as one of the main reasons for vehicles failing an MOT, we know that mechanics fit plenty of them. With that in mind, we came up with the Golden Bulb campaign to make this everyday task a little more exciting and to say thank you to our loyal customers for choosing to fit Ring.
He adds: “We are really pleased with the response from the Golden Bulb campaign. Steve and the team at Walkers Garage are worthy winners and we know that they will be putting the equipment to good use.”
The prize is part of a wider campaign which has seen hundreds of golden tickets feature in the Ring H7 bulb boxes giving vehicle owners and garage technicians the chance to win individual prizes.
