The date: Friday 14th October 2016 will be one of the days forever imprinted in the mind of 22-year-old Dandra Vanterpool of Horse Path, who was beaming from ear to ear, simply because he had more than a reason to do so.
He was on that day been officially declared the winner of the free fuel for a year promotion by SOL at the popular hangout spot at the Tortola Pier Park- Myett’s Chill Zone.
Despite being employed at Sterling Group BVI Ltd, Vanterpool is a Business Administration student at the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College and travels quite a bit for school, work, and recreational purposes. He sees his win as a way to keep money in his pocket and in the bank. “This will definitely do me good and at the end of the year, I expect to have thousands…that’s the plan,” he said smiling broadly.
After a few years of having his driver’s license, Vanterpool acquired his own vehicle last December.
The free fuel for a year promotion started on July 22nd, 2016 and came to an end on October 9th, 2016. To be a part of the promotion, users of SOL fuel had to spend a minimum of $20 at any of SOL’s Service Stations. Next, they would be given a Web Card with a code which had to be used to log on to www.solpetroleum.com/gofurtherbvi, where an entry form had to be filled out.
General Manager of Sol BVI Liz Wyatt, promised that the promotion will be on again in 2017.
