At Bill Plant we always like to give back to our loyal followers and this holiday season was no exception. We ran an iPad competition throughout December on our Bill Plant Driving School Facebook Page for our ‘likers’ as a way of saying thankyou for their support. Due to the amazing response from this competition we have decided to make it a regular occurrence! Not only will we give away an iPad one month but we will also give away a £200 driving lesson voucher the month after.
Here is the lucky winner from our December 2013 iPad competition, courtesy of Bill Plant Ltd. Many congratulations Rose! We hope you’re enjoying

Deputy chief executive Julie Townsend of the Road safety Charity Brake said:
‘These irresponsible individuals have shown disregard for the law and the lives of other road users, time after time. Allowing these drivers to stay on our roads puts innocent members of the public in danger and makes a mockery of the system. Drivers who clock up 12 points have had ample warning to stop breaking the law and avoid disqualification.’

This January has seen the ever popular return of the Dryathlon, which raises money in aid of Cancer Research. For the first month of the year Dryathletes go sober not only to raise money for the charity but to also raise awareness about cancer, in the hope that one day soon we can put a stop to this devastating disease.
Last year the organization raised 4 million pounds and this year Bill Plant Ltd wants to join in.
