Last week we met with Mr Brueton, a loyal Compton supporter who together with his wife has been playing our lottery for 12 years. Back in December, the couple won the top prize on our Compton Lottery Christmas Superdraw.
“It was amazing to get the call from the lottery team to say that our ticket had been drawn and that we’d won the top prize. We’d won the odd £5 here and there before, but to win this amount so close to Christmas was perfect! After winning the Compton lottery, I even went and brought a ticket for the Euro Millions!
“With our winnings, we donated some back to Compton, then we put some towards Christmas and we also shared some between family.”
Compton Care Lottery Manager Marie said “The team always try and call the top three winners for every weekly draw, and to hear the surprise and delight in their voices really does make our week!
“It’s always wonderful to hear players stories about why they support Compton Care through the lottery and superdraw. One of the main reasons people take part is not just about the chance to win a substantial prize, it’s knowing that funds raised go directly towards providing care and support to local people in their own community – a definite win win.”
Mr Brueton has a personal connection with Compton and added “I’ve lost a lot of life long friends who were cared for in the community by Compton. Everyone who works there does an amazing job, I don’t know why people wouldn’t do their bit to support Compton. Everyone should give a little!”
This year our Christmas Superdraw raised a record breaking £33,419 thanks to our incredible supporters including Mr Brueton, and for that we’re extremely grateful!
