Couple enjoy honeymoon thanks to Rainbows Lottery

Two Rainbows supporters have enjoyed an extra special honeymoon thanks to our charity.

Last year, Lee Mann scooped £1,000 on our Lottery, which enabled him to spend a week away with his wife, Nicola, following their wedding.

Lee is now encouraging people to sign up to our Lottery, which each week has a jackpot of £1,000.

Lee has played our Lottery for four years. He said: “I signed up when I was approached by a volunteer who was fundraising near some local shops. My young daughter was with me at the time and the fact that she is fully healthy, possibly something that I took for granted, made what was said about the work of Rainbows even more impactful.

“I was keen to make a regular contribution in some way to brighten short lives and this is something that I will continue to do. The £1,000 win was a complete shock. I did a double take when I opened the envelope, such was my disbelief.

“Nicola and I were considering a few days out after the wedding day having covered all the expense of the wedding between us. However, the win enabled us to enjoy a week away at the beautiful Rowden Mill Station, in Herefordshire. This was a lovely and peaceful place to unwind. So, a big thank you to Rainbows Lottery for all the great work that you do and for making our wedding week extra special.”

As well as the top prize, our Lottery also has a second prize of £250, which is a rollover draw with the potential to reach up to £10,000. For every week the Rollover isn’t won, the prize increases by £250. Having a unique number in our Lottery draw costs £1 a week.

Jennifer Varnam, Lottery and Supporter engagement Coordinator at Rainbows, said: “Every day our lottery members, like Lee, are playing an important part in caring for babies, children and young people with serious and terminal illnesses. By joining our Lottery, you will be helping to make a real difference to families who need our support the most.”
