More chances to win in re­vamped char­ity lot­tery

Glossop Advertiser - - Front Page -

THE Wil­low Wood Win­ners weekly lot­tery has been re­struc­tured so that from to­mor­row, Fri­day, Septem­ber 1, there will be an ad­di­tional 10 win­ners ev­ery week – that’s over 500 more mem­bers of our com­mu­nity who will be re­ceiv­ing a Wil­low Wood cheque ev­ery year!

Diane Austin-Hughes, Wil­low Wood’s lot­tery manager, said: “It’s got to be worth just £1 a week to en­ter.

“Where else would you get the chance to win one of 40 cash prizes each and ev­ery week, and to know that your money is go­ing to help lo­cal peo­ple?

“Those weekly pay­ments re­ally add up and help us to im­prove the qual­ity of life for so many of our pa­tients and sup­port their fam­i­lies through some dif­fi­cult times.” l

The Wil­low Wood Win­ners first prize will re­main at £1,000 and as Diane said: “It’s not a life-chang­ing amount, but it is a great feel­ing to win it.

“One re­cent win­ner used the cash for a ticket to Aus­tralia to see fam­ily, an­other to have a new bath­room fit­ted, and I re­ally love phon­ing them up each Fri­day to hear their re­ac­tion to the news.”

It’s so easy to join, just go to www.wil­low­wood. info and fol­low the link on the home page to set up your di­rect debit, or ring the lot­tery of­fice on 0161 330 1133.

Good luck!

THE Kids-Com Car Boot Sale is back, and it’s big­ger and bet­ter than ever!

Yes, Wil­low Wood is hold­ing an­other ta­ble top sale of any­thing and ev­ery­thing to do with ba­bies, tod­dlers and chil­dren.

Sun­day, Septem­ber 24 sees this com­mu­nity car boot sale com­ing to Ast­ley Sports Vil­lage, a great lo­ca­tion.

Eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble, it has free car park­ing and is big enough to hold up to 60 stalls.

The sale runs from 10am to noon and re­fresh­ments will be avail­able.

Chris Hay­den, or­gan­iser of the event, said: “We all know just how ex­pen­sive it is to bring up a fam­ily, and chil­dren shoot up so quickly that clothes and shoes can be barely worn be­fore they’re out­grown.

“Kids-Com Car Boot is a great way to re­coup some of your costs – and help the en­vi­ron­ment by re­cy­cling goods at the same time.

“And it’s not just clothes. Pre-loved games, toys, books, DVDs, baby gear – any chil­dren’s items – can be bought and sold. It’s pri­vate sellers only, we can’t ac­cept traders.”

Pitches are £10 and must be pre-booked, ei­ther on­line at www., or by tele­phon­ing 0161 330 7788.

With en­try on the day at just £1 (un­der 16s are free) it’s a great way to kit out your kids!
