Christmas came early this year for a dad-of-four, when he received a winter windfall from Croyland Car Megastore.

James Francis scooped £250 in the Rushden car dealer’s weekly Freebie Friday giveaway.

James was selected at random on the company’s Facebook page by liking the week’s posts and took his son Connor, 10, along as his lucky charm.

James said: “I follow Croyland Car Megastore on Facebook as they are a local company and I like its Freebie Friday giveaway.

“I couldn’t believe it when I won – I was over the moon!

“Connor always seems to find money and wins things, so he spun the wheel for me and scored the jackpot £250!

“With Christmas coming up it’s a godsend.

“I’ve got four boys so the £250 will go towards making their Christmas extra-special this year.

“It’s amazing that a local company runs this every week, gestures like this really put a smile on people’s faces.”

Croyland Car Megastore has been handing out treats every Friday via its Facebook page.

Weekly winners are selected at random by liking posts put up that week.

The winner then spins the wheel in the showroom to determine what they have won.

Prizes on offer include £250 cash, Auto Glym Lifeshine treatment, £50 fuel vouchers, a meal for two and an Amazon voucher.

Croyland general manager Mark Swindells said: “We are thrilled that James won the jackpot and are delighted that our Freebie Friday giveaway has proved so popular.

“It’s our way of giving something back to the community.

“We do hope that our weekly Freebie Friday spreads a bit of Christmas cheer not only now, but throughout the year to follow!”
