We made Zoe and her family’s Christmas when we surprised them with the incredible news that they had won the top prize in our first-ever charity Christmas raffle!

Zoe was so excited when she found out she had won a £500 voucher that she rushed to our Fledglings shop to see what she could spend it on. Spoilt for choice, Zoe eventually selected products to help with her daughter’s feeding, sensory and communication skills, plus a few extra items for her daughter’s school.

She told us:

“I’m still in shock! I purchased raffle tickets from a few charities not expecting to win anything – let alone first prize! What an amazing call to get on a Monday morning and I’ll admit, I did a little dance!

My daughter has been through so much in her short life, always facing everything with tenacity, strength, and a good dose of cheekiness. She spreads joy with her beautiful smile and personality, so it’s incredible to be able to support her and help her shine like the superstar she is.

Thank you so much! This will make a huge difference for my daughter and her future.”

Winner of Contact's raffle, parent Zoe, stood next to a stone wall with her partner and two children
Zoe and her family.

A huge thank-you to everyone who played our charity raffle and donated money to help fund Contact’s vital support services for families with disabled children!
