Richard was the lucky winner of Scope’s £4,000 Summer Jackpot prize. Below he tells us how excited he was to win and why he supports us every week by playing the Scope Friday Lottery.
How did you feel when you found out you won the top prize?
Unbelievable! We always get a lot through the post and we just thought it was another letter. Then our son said “no, you’ve won!” We’re really grateful!
What are you going to spend your winnings on?
We haven’t decided yet but we think some of the winnings will go towards our mortgage. We’ve also just come back from a holiday in South America (my wife is from Chile) so it will help to pay for that!
What does Scope mean to you?
I’ve been supporting Scope for years as I was born with cerebral palsy and it has been difficult at times, but I’ve coped well. I’m an artist and I paint.
When we retired the money went down and we stopped some of our charity donations but we couldn’t bring ourselves to stop our donation to Scope. It means a lot.
