Ben Eyres strikes it lucky with an oil boiler
A lucky installer from Devon is the first to have discovered a golden ticket as part of Worcester, Bosch Group’s nationwide competition, which kicked off the company’s  50th anniversary celebrations.

Ben Eyres, of Ben Eyres Gas discovered the first of five golden tickets when he came to fit a new Greenstar Heatslave oil-fired boiler for customers Helen and Nigel Paver. As a result, his customers received £1000 off the cost of their boiler, plus a 5-year manufacturer’s guarantee and free servicing for the lifetime of the boiler.

Earlier this year, five Greenstar boilers were picked at random by managing director, Carl Arntzen.  A special golden ticket was then inserted inside the gold casing before the boilers were distributed to stockists across the UK. Within just a few weeks, Ben was installing the gold floor-standing Greenstar Heatslave boiler.

Ben, who also won a Bosch power tools kit worth, commented: “Myself and all the staff at Ben Eyres Gas were delighted to find the first golden ticket. When we read the ticket we were delighted to tell Helen and Nigel they could claim £1000 off the cost of their boiler – they were a bit shocked but completely over the moon. We thank Worcester, Bosch Group for a fantastic promotion and feel very lucky to be the first company to have found one of the five tickets.”

Worcester’s Carl Arntzen added: “The 50th anniversary is such an important milestone for us, we wanted to involve everyone around the UK in the celebrations.”   A dedicated microsite – – which details the company’s history, is being updated with all of the year’s events as they unfold.
