Tony Moore

Monday 8th May 2017 - Congratulations to Tony from Sturminster Newton in Dorset who is our £1000 winner today!

Tony is delighted with his win and sent us this wonderful reply about what he's going to do with the windfall..

Thanks for the information about the win.
As an aside, I’m sure I wrote “Dorset” on my form when I joined the lottery all those years ago. Your website show “Devon”. [Whoops! Now corrected] One of the reasons we moved from London to Dorset, was to be closer to transport to St. Mary’s!
We have been travelling to your beautiful Isles every year for the last 26 years and count down the days till our next trip. We joined the lottery when you first began and am very happy to be a winner. Your discount card has also been very useful, as we love the range of clothes that are sold in Scilly shops.

My car is 13 years old and will need replacing soon, so I’ll be buying some Premium Bonds with the majority of the win, to try to ‘grow’ it a bit. However, I do support a charity which funds a safe house for street children in Medellin, Columbia, called “Let the Children Live”. I’ll be sending them a cheque. I’ll also be sending a cheque back to you as my thank- you for the work that you do in providing the radio service to The Isles of Scilly. It’s a great way for visitors to keep up-to-date, after our annual top-up of Scilly tonic, always on St. Mary’s.

I’ve attached a photo of us looking out over Pelistry, which is one of our favourite places on Scilly.

For the last 10 years or so, two of my sisters have travelled with us, who fortunately get on very well with my wife, but there are occasions when I’m a little ‘over-supervised’!
Kind regards,
