A COMPETITION has put one Oldhamer in the driving seat as he drove home with a brand new Nissan Micra.

Anthony Reeves was the lucky winner of Howarth Timber & Building Supplies' ‘golden ticket’ giveaway on their third annual Trade Day Bonanza.

The competition was open to anyone spending £250 in a single transaction before and during the event itself with more than 1,300 "golden tickets" redeemed.

Anthony said: “I’m a long-term customer of Howarth Timber’s Oldham branch, so when I found out about the ‘golden ticket’ and the fantastic prize on offer, I knew I wanted to be in with a chance."

Over 1,000 people streamed through the doors of the Leeds United Conference Centre in November, – the company’s biggest and best event to date.

Neale Brewster, Howarth Timber’s marketing and product development manager, said: “The ‘golden ticket’ giveaway created a lot of buzz around the Trade Day Bonanza, with thousands of qualifying orders going through the tills in the lead-up to the event.

“I’m very happy that the prize has gone to a loyal Howarth Timber customer and we look forward to seeing Anthony pulling up at the Oldham branch in his new car in the future!”
