Karen’s Story

Karen purchased a single-ticket for £1 on the off-chance she may win. That particular ticket was certainly golden as she found out that she won the top prize of £1,000 in the weekly draw! We got in touch with her a few days later to talk to her about her bank balance boosting sum:


“I couldn’t believe it when I won £1,000, I was absolutely thrilled. It’s a great way to support your favourite local charity and potentially win a fantastic prize in the process.”
