Emma

I’ve been a member of the lottery at St Ann’s for at least five years. It’s easy to pay on direct debit. They need it and deserve all the money they can get. It’s a brilliant place.

Emma will always have a soft spot for St Ann’s which cared for her late father Jim, 71, who died of cancer in 2016.

Her sister, Anna, won our lottery two years ago and now it was Emma’s turn to receive a nice surprise through the post.

Emma, an accounts executive at Hi-Way Components in Chadderton, has raised thousands of pounds for good causes, including St Ann’s, from charity runs over several years.

“I ran the Great North Run and thought it was another thank you note for raising money, so wasn’t going to open the envelope straight away. When I did open it, I thought it was a joke. The win came just at the right time. We’re doing our new house up and will get a new floor in the conservatory. I’ve been a member of the lottery at St Ann’s for at least five years.
