£2k winner in last weeks lottery draw!

Last weekend saw our first big lottery winner! Mr B won a massive £2,000 in the West Berkshire Lottery's 23rd draw, supporting The Mary Hare School for Deaf Children. Mr B explained why he chose to support the school in Newbury and what winning the money means to him.

He commented:

“This has come as a big surprise and glad to support a lottery that helps local charities.

I have a big birthday in December and we were already planning a party so this will go some way towards it. Mary Hare have a charity auction tonight so I may buy something at that. 

Mary Hare is a fantastic school and does amazing work with the children. Current fundraising for the new Primary school will be an amazing asset when it is finished. I also like attending concerts at Arlington Arts which is a wonderful theatre.”
