Jordon Puddefoot, a Milton Keynes-based plumber has been selected as the winner of JG Speedfit’s 20 Grand in your Hand (20GIYH) competition from tens of thousands of entrants. The winning ticket was purchased at Wolseley Plumb and Parts in Bletchley, Milton Keynes.
JG Speedfit launched the 6-month 20GIYH promotional campaign involving its best-selling product, the 15mm Equal Elbow, back in February 2023. The Equal Elbows were made available to stockists in specially branded packs of 10 for the duration of the campaign. Each pack had a unique code allowing installers to enter the competition.
Jordon is a qualified plumber with over 10 years’ experience working for L & R Plumbing and Heating, a family run business established over 40 years ago by Les Bullock, entered the 20GIYH competition and like many others with the hope of winning £20,000.
“Whilst on my way to visit my future father-in-law in hospital I received a call from Mike Risely, RWC’s UK & Ireland Sales Director, to inform me that I was the winner of the 20GIYH competition. It was an unexpected call but very welcomed,” said Jordon.
He also shared how he was going to spend the money: “My fiancé and I are getting married in March 2024, so we will be using the money towards paying for the wedding and honeymoon.
I have used JG Speedfit products for most of my career as they are easy to install and reliable products that I can’t fault. I use Speedfit fittings most frequently for first fixes in bathrooms and heating systems as well as stop ends to test pipework and fittings,” said Jordon.
On 7th September 2023, Jordon accompanied by his apprentice, Josh Hawkins, were given a tour of RWC’s UK state-of-the-art factory and testing laboratory where JG Speedfit products are made, followed by an official presentation of the £20,000 prize.
Throughout the competition period, JG Speedfit stockists were also given the chance to win Love2Shop vouchers. Each month, £500 worth of vouchers was awarded to the most impressive point of sale display in store. Alongside that, a £250 Love2Shop voucher was awarded to the stockist that sold the winning installer ticket for the monthly JG Speedfit Tech Bundle.
“The 20GIYH campaign was a huge success and it is great to see the positive impact it has had on sales for JG Speedfit and our distribution partners. Without the ongoing support of our stockists the success of this competition would not have been possible. The 20GIYH campaign was a brilliant way for us to reward both our loyal installers and distribution partners,” said Mike Riseley, RWC’s UK & Ireland Sales Director.
