"My feet haven’t touched the ground since winning. I’m over the moon to have won and hugely surprised too. I support Growing Together because Blackthorn good neighbours do fantastic work and are fantastic people.
I have played the lottery for many months and it adds a sparkle to the month as well as being rewarding to know you’re doing your bit for the community.
It's wonderful to know I can help my children in their studies as mature students and spoil myself too with something special. The smile hasn’t left my face! Play the lottery to assist a very worthy cause and the chance to win" anon Jackpot winner
Kathryn White from Growing Together was over the moon to discover that one of their supporters won the jackpot. Kathryn said;
"Growing Together is a local charity working in the estates of Lings Lumbertubs Blackthorn and Goldings – some of which are the most deprived in the country (Blackthorn is in the 5% most deprived estates). We work with the local community to offer support and to run the services they want. We work with partners to do this.
We run the BGN Nursery on Blackthorn for 2, 3, and 4-year-olds accessing their free entitlement to childcare and we offer community support from Brookside Hub in Lumbertuibs and from Blackthorn Community Centre. This includes clubs and groups such as Tots, crafting, health and wellbeing gardening along with regular litter picks. We also run activities for children in school holidays.
We heard about the lottery from NBC and it seemed an easy way to make some extra income without having to do much work! I attended a workshop about it at the Guildhall.
We are always trying to raise funds to do more in the community – set up more groups and do more for children in school holidays
We are raising a small amount each year and it all helps but we need to promote it more – we are working on improving our marketing and we hope this will make an impact on the Lottery income.
The Lottery is easy to set up and there is nothing to lose! We have not had any complaints or negative comments about it." Kathryn White, CEO of Growing Together
