Do you know a family in need this Christmas season?


slimstyresThe generous team at Slims Tyres Service (STS) Bridgestone Bullsbrook have set out to make Christmas a bit more special for one family in need this year by offering

a free set of tyres for their family car to ensure they are safe on the road this Christmas holidays!

Natasha Zeplin, office manager of STS and fiance of part-owner Ryan Lancaster, set the plan in motion. “I got the idea from Zambreros, who donate a meal to someone in need for every burrito

or bowl you purchase there,” she said. “Some people’s tyres are so bad it’s really dangerous and if you live in Bullsbrook or further north you’re probably doing a lot of kilometers at 110 kph and doing a lot of driving too.”

“I know there are a lot of families who really need new tyres on their car but it’s probably the last thing on their minds with Christmas approaching.” Natasha said Slim’s Tyre Service would supply and fit whichever tyres the family needed. With the cost of a new set of tyres starting at around $400, and up to $900 for a 4-wheel drive it’s a substantial gift for the family chosen.

The new business, which only opened in March this year, offers a full end-to-end tyre management service, logbook servicing and mechanical repairs. The shop is owned by Ryan, a former sprint car driver and his step-dad Craig, however Ryan and Natasha are the face of the operation, and also own the 24-hour gym next door. The couple, who plan to marry next year on their 10-year anniversary, have a strong local focus and the slick shop fit-out reflects their long-term investment in the business and the area. The massive funky wall mural which was commissioned by an artist to celebrate the town of Bullsbrook and the bright clean reception gives the big wharehouse situated in the industrial estate a distinctive and professional feel.

“We wanted to do it right,” says Natasha.

“We want to support locals, and hope they’ll support us in return.”

She is asking people in the region to help them find a family who would really benefit from the free tyres. You can nominate by going to their Facebook page ‘STS Bridgestone Bullsbrook’ or email your suggestion to sts@outlook.com.au. Don’t forget to include why you think the family deserves this special gift.

“Please ensure you also leave a contact number so we can call the deserving winning family. You can nominate your own family, a friend, your sister or your neighbour,” says Natasha.

The winning family will be notified on Monday the 19th of December so please be sure to have your nomination in by then.
