Kwik Fit calls for nominations for local NHS heroes
Kwik Fit has launched a campaign to recognise NHS and emergency service heroes helping to keep the nation going during the coronavirus crisis.
As a thank you, the fast-fit and servicing specialist is calling on people to nominate the community heroes from their local area for the chance to win free tyres for their vehicle.
In total, more than 60 local heroes will be selected to receive a new set of four tyres.
To nominate someone who deserves a free set of tyres, people should go to their local Kwik Fit centre’s Facebook page and complete the entry requirements. Entries must be submitted by midday on Monday 4 May, and entrants can nominate themselves if they are eligible.
Roger Griggs, communications director at Kwik Fit, said: “Throughout the last few weeks we have served many NHS and blue-light workers at our centres, both in emergency vehicles and in their own cars, so our staff have heard lots of stories from the frontline. One of our centre managers had the idea to provide community nurses with protective seat and steering wheel covers and gloves and we have now provided hundreds of thousands of these across the country.
“Offering free sets of tyres is a further way that we can say thank you to these heroes for keeping the nation rolling. We encourage anyone who would like to nominate a local hero to visit their nearest Kwik Fit centre’s Facebook page and let us know the reasons for their nomination.”
Kwik Fit is providing 10% off all its products for NHS workers and is also raising money for NHS charities through its website. Any customer buying tyres or other services online at www.kwik-fit.com is able to make an additional contribution to the charities.
