A phone call from Bluebell Wood proved a very welcome surprise for a soon to be married mum-of-two when she discovered she’s bagged the charity’s weekly £1,000 lottery prize.

Kathyrn Olding, from Doncaster, was over-the-moon to receive the news after spending the last few months on furlough from her part-time job.

With her wedding booked in for August this year, the win couldn’t have come at a better time.

“I knew the money came out of my account each month but it came as a total surprise when I received the phone call,” said Kathryn, 29.

“My partner and I are getting married in August this year all being well so it’s definitely come at a good time.

“I’ve been on furlough for quite a while now so the money will come in very handy.”

There is a £1,000 top prize up for grabs every week through Bluebell Wood’s charity lottery, and by playing you’ll be helping local families make precious memories in the time they have together.

For as little as £1 a week you could be in with a chance of scooping the jackpot or the runner up prizes of £100, £50 or £10.

“Every person who plays our lottery helps to support our life-changing work so whoever scoops the top prize, the children and families we care for are always winners too."

“If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning our weekly jackpot while supporting local families through some of the toughest times they’ll ever face, then this is the perfect opportunity.”
