Big Birthday Raffle winner announced!
A lucky Tenovus Cancer Care supporter has won a brand new car worth more than £10,000 in our Big Birthday Raffle.
Shân Watkins, from Hirwaun, was one of the first people to buy a raffle ticket when the Big Birthday Raffle launched in March, as part of our 75th anniversary celebrations.
The Big Birthday Raffle raised £37,000 to help fund vital research, treatment and support and was kindly supported by Nathaniel Car Sales, who kindly supplied a brand new MG3 Form Sport car to be given away as the top prize.
Shân regularly supports the charity by attending events organised by the Aberdare Friends of Tenovus Cancer Care Group. It was at a fashion show organised by the group that she purchased the winning ticket!
Shân said, “When I had the call from Louise at Tenovus I couldn’t believe it. I sat there all day and all night thinking about it and even called the Tenovus office the next day to double check!”
“I’ve never won anything before and it’s a beautiful car. Thank you to Tenovus Cancer Care and Nathaniel Cars.”
Louise Swindell from Tenovus Cancer Care commented, “The winning ticket was actually one of the very first tickets sold. It’s so wonderful to be able to do this for someone, especially someone who is such a great supporter of the charity.”
“Tenovus Cancer Care would like to say a big thank you to everyone who bought a ticket and to Wayne Griffiths at Nathaniel Cars for supporting the Big Birthday Raffle.”
Jean Phillips, from Bridgend, is a founding member of the Bridgend Sing with Us choir and has been volunteering and supporting the charity since. Over the last couple of months Jean has dedicated her time to the Big Birthday Raffle by asking businesses and local people to buy a ticket. Jean handed over the keys to Shân at Nathaniel Cars showroom.
The second prize was a family holiday at a Watermark’s luxury lakeside lodge and there were five chances to win a £50 John Lewis voucher.
Thank you to everyone who supported our Big Birthday Raffle and congratulations to all of the winners!
