Derby installer strikes gold with Worcester ticket

A Derby installer has discovered the next of Worcester, Bosch Group’s golden tickets as part of the UK boiler manufacturer’s nationwide competition, which forms part of its 50th anniversary celebrations.

David Newham, of David Newham Plumbing & Heating Ltd, discovered one of the five golden tickets as he came to fit the new Greenstar boiler for his customers Vince and Becky Riley at their Chellaston property.

His discovery follows that of Ben Eyres, of Ben Eyres Gas Ltd in Devon, who discovered the first golden ticket back in April.

Five of Worcester’s Greenstar boilers were picked at random by Managing Director Carl Arntzen on 1st February 2012 and had a special golden ticket inserted inside their temporary gold casing before being distributed to stockists across the UK.

Within just a few months of the launch of the campaign, David had discovered the special boiler and installed it at his customers’ home.

David’s customers have now claimed £1,000 towards the cost of their boiler installation as part of their prize, plus a five year manufacturer’s guarantee and free servicing for the lifetime of the boiler. David meanwhile, has won a Bosch power tools kit worth over £200.

David commented: “Myself and all the staff at David Newham Plumbing & Heating Ltd were delighted to find a golden ticket. We were even more surprised when we came across a Greenstar gas boiler that was actually sprayed gold.

“We had read about the competition in a magazine and when we read the ticket we were only too happy to tell Vince and Becky they could claim £1000 off the cost of their boiler. They were a bit shocked but completely over the moon with their prize.

“We thank Worcester, Bosch Group for a fantastic promotion and feel very lucky to be the one of the companies to have found one of the five tickets.”

For further information on Worcester’s golden ticket campaign and its 50th anniversary, a dedicated microsite has been launched –  – which details Worcester’s history and will be kept up to date with all of the year’s events as they unfold.
