Forterra is giving away £5,000 worth of holiday vouchers each month to celebrate the 140th anniversary of its iconic London Brick, as well as various other prizes, worth a total of £50,000, for builders purchasing London Brick until the end of October.
Weekly and daily prizes – including football tickets, in-store credit and goody bags – are on offer to builders in addition to the holiday vouchers.
Over their 140-year history, billions of London Bricks have been produced, with output reaching 16 million bricks per-day during the post-war housing boom. Today, London Brick is produced almost exclusively for the residential renovation, maintenance and improvement market, at Forterra’s Kings Dyke facility, which employs 260 people.
Imran Khan, owner of SK Building Solutions, was the first recipient of the holiday vouchers after he entered the prize draw when purchasing London Bricks from his local builders’ merchant for an extension project.
Imran said: “I couldn’t believe I’d won the prize draw, because I’ve never really won anything in my life. It was a very nice surprise, and I’m planning to use the vouchers to take my family to Dubai.
“I regularly buy London Bricks for the jobs I’m doing, because I work in the London area and many of the properties around here were built using them, so they blend really well with existing houses if you’re doing a renovation or extension.”
