Say hello to our £4000 jackpot winner, Liz!

Liz was the lucky winner of £4000, in our Christmas 2016 Jackpot Draw. Liz has been giving to Scope since the late 1990s, and started buying raffles in 2003. She tells us how she felt when she found out, and why she supports us by joining in with our raffles.

How did you feel when you found out you had won top prize?

I never thought I would win! My first reaction was that I wanted to give some of the money back to charity. I found out just after Christmas, and it was nice to have all my family there to tell them. Everyone was so surprised and excited!

What are you going to spend your winnings on?

I’m going to give some of the money back to Scope, and some to another charity, where a family friend works. We’re then going to split the rest of the money between my family. My daughter has recently become engaged, so the timing of this win was perfect.

What does Scope mean to you?

Scope seems to be a very worthwhile charity- I’ve been supporting Scope for a number of years. I used to be a teacher and I taught several disabled students, I once went on a trip with one girl who had cerebral palsy and she joined in with everything. I think it’s important for people to not be treated as different, and I think this is something Scope is really passionate about. I always liked to buy raffle tickets to support Scope, but I really never thought I’d win!

Would you like to win the top prize like Liz did? You’ve got to be in it to win it! Join our Super Jackpot today for a chance to win £10,000, whilst supporting our vital work with disabled people and their families.

Meet our £4,000 raffle winner Richard

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.
