Toolstation - Winter Bonanza
Tim Bedson receives the keys

A builder from Stoke-on-Trent has won a brand new Ford Ranger pick-up truck worth £29,599 in ’s Winter Bonanza prize draw.

Tim Bedson, a general builder and joiner, scooped the top prize in the annual prize draw and received the keys to his new truck at the Stoke-on-Trent Toolstation branch.

Toolstation’s Winter Bonanza prize draw received over 150,000 entries and awarded over 150 prizes. Other winners got their hands on some Toolstation’s products, including a Milwaukee six pack power tool kit, Draper kits, Makita drills and torches by Nightsearcher and LED Lenser.

Top prize winner, Tim Bedson, who initially started out as structural steel engineer before turning his hand to property maintenance, plastering, plumbing, general joinery and building, commented: “I still can’t believe I’ve won. Nobody ever expects to win when they enter competitions, so it came as quite a shock. A brand new pick-up truck is an incredible prize, especially for those of us who work in the trade. Now that I’ve got the keys, I can’t wait to take it out for a spin.”

John Meaden, director of marketing at Toolstation, said: “Our annual Winter Bonanza is our chance to say thanks to Toolstation customers and this year I was pleased to be able to hand over the top prize to Tim – a very deserving winner with many years’ experience in the construction trade. The prize draw was a huge success and it’s brilliant to be able to reward so many tradespeople and home improvers in this way.”
