A motorist from Sunderland has won the top prize of a European holiday in a competition run by Gulf.

As part of the customer engagement campaign, Gulf worked with 20th Century Fox and its recent animated film Mr. Peabody and Sherman. All customers who purchased fuel (petrol or diesel) at Gulf forecourts over a four-week period were entered into a competition to win a European family holiday for four.

Entry to the competition was through a special transaction reference, given when fuel was purchased, which was used to enter the competition by SMS or online.

The winner of the holiday, Angela Reynolds, was selected after filling up at her local Gulf garage on the Harbour Road, Sunderland.

She said: “I can’t wait to be walking along the historic streets of Paris, soaking up the culture and the sunshine, with my family by my side – and Katie is so excited to get on the rides at Disneyland!

“We still have one space on the holiday but it’s proving difficult to choose who to take with us – everyone wants to join us on our adventure!”

Christina Doughty, from Gulf, the retail brand of Certas Energy, said: “I’m sure it’s nice to pick up an action-packed adventure in Paris while you’re filling the car up. We had lots of entries to win this fantastic holiday and we are delighted Angela and her family will be the ones enjoying it. We hope they have a great time together and remember it forever.”
