BWOC raises money for ‘Help for Heroes’
Posted on the 15th October 2014 in the category Announcements
The BWOC Telesales and Field Sales teams went head to head in a charity football match on September 26th, raising money for the very worthy ‘Help for Heroes’ charity.
The 5-a-side game, which took place at ‘Goals’ in Darlaston, West Midlands, managed to raise a grand total of £230.30.
Telesales were victorious after beating the Field team 20 – 7 and Scott Fillingham, National Field Sales Manager said afterwards ‘that is was a very close result’.
The game was spearheaded by James Heath in the Telesales Department.
He had this to say….
‘’ Help for Heroes is a very deserving charity, with every penny raised going towards helping to rehabilitate our wounded soldiers.
There are currently about 75,000 members of the UK military needing help, and hopefully the money we raised will go towards helping them”

Transparent Fuel Prices
Posted on the 22nd August 2014 in the category Fuel News
According to the AA motorists in the UK have seen a fuel price fall of 2.7% this summer and over the last few weeks, BWOC diesel prices have been at their lowest level for 2014.
The AA have revealed that petrol prices at the pumps had fallen to to a three-year low with an average price of 129.72ppl in mid-August and diesel averaged at 133.94ppl, the lowest since February 2011.
In Northern Ireland the average is currently 130.6ppl for petrol, the most expensive in the country, whereas Yorkshire and Humberside are the cheapest for petrol at an average of 129.4ppl.
At the moment, East Anglia are averaging 134.5ppl for diesel, knocking Scotland off their usual spot as the UK's most expensive.
One way to combat unpredictable & varying fuel prices is with a BWOC fixed priced fuel card. You get a fixed cost per week, given in advance & you pay the same price at every site on the network, regardless of what the polesign states! Having this level of convenience also saves you precious time on admin & chasing down receipts.
With no minimum term contract or drawing commitment, what have you got to lose?

BWOC's birthday gift to Weston Hospicecare
Posted on the 1st July 2014 in the category Announcements
BWOC Limited has created a colourful new livery for its newest tanker.
The Weston Hospicecare livery - designed as a gift for the charity's 25th Birthday - will adorn the side of the tanker as it travels 70,000 miles every year in the South West.
Supplying the majority of independent distributors in the South West, the Weston-based fuel supplier is a long-time supporter of the local charity. The Tanker is the latest in a line of BWOC activities to raise awareness and money for the Hospice.
Mark Wayne, BWOC's Managing Director, said: "Weston Hospicecare is a charity close to the heart of BWOC and we are proud to be recognised as one of the many companies that support them locally.
"With the Hospice celebrating their 25th anniversary this year, we as a company wanted to present them with a special present of support. We hope that through the branding of this vehicle, we will help them to continue lifting their profile in the local area and making people aware of the remarkable job they do in supporting our community.
"They are a charity made up of very special people and I would encourage local businesses to support them however they can".
Gill Auden, Chief Executive of Weston Hospicecare was thrilled by the gesture: "What an incredible birthday present! We're very proud to see our logo alongside BWOC's as testament to the strong relationship we have built over the years. Everyone at the Hospice will get a flutter of pride every time we see it!
"They have let me close enough to have my photo taken with the tanker, but thankfully they have not asked me to drive it!"
