A motorist from Shefford has won more than £2,000 worth of fuel in a national competition.

Tom Barker is one of a number of customers at JET fuelling stations who have won £2,015 of fuel run by the company.

Tom entered the Kick Start your 2015 promotion at JET’s John R Ford & Sons Ltd forecourt based in Ampthill Road, Shefford, earlier this year.

To enter customers simply had to spend a minimum of £20.15 on fuel to receive a unique voucher code to enter the competition in store or online.

Tom is one of 21 lucky JET customers who were selected at random at JET’s head office by the fuel brand’s ambassador for 2015, Nicolas Hamilton, the brother of Formula One World Champion, Lewis Hamilton.

Each of the 21 customers have won £2015 to spend on fuel at any of JET’s forecourts throughout the UK.

Richard Ford, owner of JET’s John R Ford site in Shefford, said: “We’re delighted that one of the 21 national prize winners entered the draw at our forecourt.

“It’s been an exciting few months for us as we’ve just completed a major refurbishment project, including increasing the size of our forecourt shop by a third.

“We’ve now got a bigger, brighter and better Premier-branded shop, offering our customers a much wider variety of fresh and frozen produce and necessity buys.

“Having a winner in JET’s national competition is the icing on the cake and the promotion was a great way to thank our local community for their continued support and custom during the refurbishment period.”

JET, established in 1954, has a well-established network of more than 350 independently-operated service stations throughout the UK.
