We said a big thank you this week to a whole host of tenants who won prizes in our December Northwards Xtra draw.
Molly McLelland won first prize and was presented with a cheque for £1,000. She said: “I was so shocked when I got my letter I said a little prayer of thanks. I’ve never won anything before.”
Jim Newton won £500, which will come as a big help as he is saving for a disability scooter. Jim said: “Getting around is getting harder and harder, so I’ve been saving for a scooter for a while now. This will make a really big difference to my life.”
Music lover, Jaqueline Lodge won £250. “I was chuffed to bits when I found out.” She told us.
“MY CD player is broken so I can buy a new one now.”
Koyar Sohrabi (pictured) also took home £250 which will probably be spent on treats for his gorgeous little boy.
The Northwards Xtra draw takes place three times a year. All tenants who are up to date with their rent and haven’t broken the rules of their tenancy agreement are automatically entered.
The rest of the winners took home special prizes including iPads, TVS and hampers filled with Christmas goodies: Roy Foden, Patrina Lovelace, Victoria Wilson, Beverley Dargan, Helen Farrell, Paul Rowe, Keith Stringer and Christina Kunda Muskuwa.
