Local Electrician wins brand new Toyota PROACE worth £32,000

Steve Tomkinson, an Electrician from Frome is celebrating this week, after winning a brand new Toyota PROACE in a Screwfix competition.

The vehicle, worth £32,000 was the top prize given away by the national retailer to mark the opening of its 500th store, which opened in Enfield earlier in the year. Steve has had the vehicle kitted out to his needs and picked up the keys this week.

Mr Tomkinson said, “It’s unbelievable. When I got the call to say I have won, I had to sit down. This type of thing doesn’t happen every day. The van is brilliant and will really help me out. I still can’t quite believe I won”

Stuart Phillips from the Bath Screwfix store said, “The opening of our 500th store was a huge milestone for us. It was a significant moment for our business that demonstrated our focus on continued growth to meet the needs of our busy customers. I’m delighted to be able to award Steve with this prize”

Since opening its first store in Yeovil in 2005, Screwfix has grown significantly and has opened one store per week for the past six years, meaning 90% of the UK population is within a 20 minute drive time of a store.
