Leamington motorist win parts and repairs with local supplier

GSF Car Parts, Leamington has given away around £3,000 worth of free car parts and repairs to deserving owners following a competition.

Among the winners of the ‘Get Your Motor Running’ competition was 30-year-old stay at home mum, Hayley Colburn and her Husband Matthew Colburn, who won repairs and servicing for their family car worth more than £610.

Mrs Colburn said: “It’s a huge help for us, especially with two demanding kids.

“It will give me a stress free life for a bit and I really like our car, so I’m glad we can keep it.”

Mr and Mrs Colburn had a list of faults that were repaired, a service and MOT was also carried out curtesy of GSF Car Parts.

GSF Car Parts Leamington Branch Manager, Steve Billings said: “There’s no enjoyment in having to fix your car when it breaks down so it’s a great feeling knowing that we’ve been able to help the competition winners get their cars back on the road.”

33-year-old driver, Bret Sutton was particularly surprised to win over £550 worth of car parts for his Mercedes Benz 230e.

Mr Sutton said: “My girlfriend entered me into the competition as a birthday surprise but she never imagined that I would actually win. It’s a massive surprise, ideal timing too.”

38-year-old ice cream vendor and single dad, Peter Short, won £350 worth of parts for his Peugeot 206, which was in desperate need of repair.

Mr Short said: “The car was a bit of a wreck and, being a single dad, I couldn’t afford to get it fixed.

“I’ve got an autistic child, so the car is essential for getting him about. I’d be lost without it.”

Jonny West, GSF Car Parts Managing Director, said: “With so many entrants, there were some tough decisions to be made but we would like to thank everyone for entering and congratulate our competition winners, all of whom are extremely deserving.”
