Fat Face Campervan winner announced!

Posted by volkszone

Steve Ralph from Hertfordshire has been given the keys to drive away in Fat Face’s £35,000 original, split screen VW Campervan, ‘Zebedee’!

The best bit is he gets to keep it forever, after winning it in a massive competition that generated interest from as far afield as Australia and America! Steve just filled out his details in a Fat Face store and was randomly selected from the thousands that applied, desperate to get their hands on Zebedee.


Steve gets himself probably the best Christmas present he’s had for some time and will be able to do some serious festive posing in his new wheels! I couldn’t believe it when I got the call telling me I’d won it,” explains Steve, “in fact I’m still bouncing off the walls now! For 2010 we had planned to cruise along to the East Coast (Great Yarmouth) and travel the coastal road all the way down and round the country to Dorset (or as far as we can get in the time period). Doing this is Zebedee is going to be amazing and we would love for summer to be here now!”

The giveaway to win the 21 window split screen beauty was launched to celebrate Fat Face’s 21st birthday. It’s the second set of Campervan keys that Fat Face has given away; the first belonging to founder Jules Leaver who had to sell his (rather beaten up) camper to fund the early days of Fat Face. However, the same sense of loss was felt by Fat Face today as Steve drove Zebedee away! However, Fat Face was delighted with the huge level of interest the competition drove and reading the many bribing and begging letters to win the Camper also made for great reading!

There were also 5 Cheeky Weekend winners who get a Vanilla Split VW Campervan for the weekend. They were Brendan Steenkamp, Jason Harling, Claire Ballantyne, Joseph Goode and Andy Hilditch. Problem is they have to give the van back but they’ll be guaranteed a good time for at least a couple of days and they also get £150 of Fat Cash to splurge in store!

Keep an eye on Fat Face’s Community pages for more competitions, event details or general Fat Face cool stuff! You’ll also be able to track where Zebedee goes as Steve will be sending through details of his adventures in Zebedee! Check out
