Champion Timber branches out in Weybridge

Published:  01 July, 2016

Champion Timber enjoyed a successful opening event for its 10th branch on 28 June.

Tradespeople were invited to the brand new Weybridge branch on Vickers Drive and were greeted with complimentary refreshments from a vintage style posh burger van, goody bags and special offers in celebration of the company’s expansion.

Special free raffle tickets were available with the first prize being a VIP driving experience at Mercedes-Benz Brooklands and runner-up prizes of 4x4 experiences.

Visitors also met and kindly sponsored yard sales manager, Kraig Seymour, who is fearlessly taking part in two extreme challenges over the summer to raise funds for Shooting Star Chase, a children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.

Mr Seymour will be abseiling down the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth and doing a sky dive, kitted out in his very own Champion Timber / Shooting Star Chase branded onesie! He can be sponsored in-branch and also online at

Branch manager Kevin Simper and operations director David Lincoln officially opened the branch with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The Champion’s Angels, a fleet of branded trikes, were also on-site offering free hot beverages and fun photo opportunities.

Mike Bird, director of marketing at Champion Timber, said: “The Weybridge branch launch event went really well and we had lots of customers in. The atmosphere was great, with enthusiastic staff and customers, and our raffle ticket collection box is filling up quickly. We’re excited to choose the winner on 4 July. The new branch offers tradespeople the brand’s usual, exceptional range of timber products and accessories, and we’re very happy to have had such a positive welcome to Weybridge.”

The new Weybridge branch is located at:

Unit A303, Brooklands Industrial Estate, Vickers Drive, Weybridge, KT13 0YU
