£25K Holiday Win for Retired Midwife - The Health Lottery

On a snowy morning in Perth, Scotland, retired midwife Maureen Cotterell was left feeling as though Santa had popped by with an early Christmas gift!  She’d won £25,000 through The Health Lottery.

Maureen delightedly told us: “I have been playing the Health Lottery for years, so this really is a dream come true.  Really, this is the best Christmas present I could ever imagine!  We always spend Christmas at home – but this year, we’re going to the local hotel to really celebrate as a family.  The champagne corks will be popping!” Maureen’s husband, Fred, added: “We’ll definitely be having an amazing Christmas this year.”

Maureen also revealed how much it means to her to see local causes receiving vital support.  “I’m a big supporter of The Health Lottery,” she said.  “It means a lot to see money going back to charities in Scotland, and I will continue to play.”

Martin Ellice, Joint Managing Director at The Health Lottery, said: “We wish Maureen our warmest congratulations.  What a great surprise just before Christmas!  Wonderful to see such a worthy winner, who regularly supports The Health Lottery and the local projects it funds in Scotland.”

During January 2019, The Health Lottery will be raising funds to support local good causes and projects across Scotland.
