Scary Skoda Instagram Competition

Lightcliffe is launching its first Halloween photo competition this year, with customers being asked to create a scary scene involving their car and post the pics on Instagram. Every photo will be entered into a prize draw, with a £50 Amazon voucher being first prize and runners up being given a “Witches Brew” mug. 


The origins of Halloween are believed to date back over 2000 years and this ancient festival is one of the longest standing traditions in the UK calendar, so it seemed only right that we do our bit to join in the fun.  


Attributed to the ancient Celts living mainly in the North, they celebrated Nov 1st as their New Year’s Day and along with returning all the flocks and herds to the fold for Winter, they also believed that the souls of the departed would return on the previous evening. This slightly unnerving element of the tradition puts some context into other oft used terms such as “All Souls” and “All Hallows” …. and of course all the spooky costumes that we dust off for the night once a year!


More modern interpretations have developed over the centuries, not least the kids’ favourite, “Trick or Treat” which came from across the pond, and the pumpkin lanterns which originated in Ireland using large potatoes or turnips.


If we could take a time machine back to those original Halloween nights, I doubt the Celts would have taken too kindly to a “trick” at the cave entrance, but a £50 Amazon voucher would certainly have paid for a few treats!

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
