Jeannette said: “I support Newark Patriotic Fund and this local lottery simply because it helps local people, particularly those who volunteer to protect us all in times of conflict and have to deal with the consequences of that mission. Winning the £2000 was a wonderful surprise as I found the email on my return from holiday and so it paid for that holiday and probably another later on!”
