Seventy-seven-year-old Brian has been committed to supporting Compton for over a decade by playing our lottery and fundraising.
“I first started supporting Compton over 10 years ago when I became captain of Swindon Golf Club in 2005 and knew I wanted to help a couple of charities. One was a charity supporting children with Leukaemia, and I knew I wanted to support someone local too, which is when I thought ‘well it has to be Compton’.
“We’ve raised thousands over the years through ticket selling, dinners with auctions and captain’s nights. I even wore a tutu and went around Wolverhampton City Centre with collection buckets!”
As a Compton Care Lottery player himself, when Brian received his own Christmas Superdraw tickets, he contacted our lottery team about selling them to his friends and family.
“I’ve sold Superdraw tickets at Oxley Park Golf Club, to my family and I’ve even sold some to friends down in Cornwall. I’m so proud, not of myself, but of what the people around me have achieved.”
Speaking to our Lottery Manager, Marie Von Wurzbach, Brian said “I know that I’m very lucky. I can get in my car, go off to play golf and do whatever I want, and so can my wife. Supporting Compton is the least we can do. All I’m doing is putting a few bob in the bucket, it’s you that does the job.”
So far, Brian has sold £100 worth of tickets for our 2018 Christmas Superdraw and has collected 5 more books of tickets to sell before the draw date on 19th December.
“The dedication from the staff at Compton is tremendous, you lot are great. There’s only one word for it, beautiful!”
