Ben Holtaway

Monday 15th January 2018 - Congrats to Ben over the water in Hayle, Cornwall who has won £1000 today in the Scilly Lottery draw!

Ben is very chuffed with his win this week, and has sent us a fab montage of pictures of happy days of gig rowing revelry aboard the Azook.

I can’t tell you how delighted I was to receive this news! A much welcome boost to the New Years otherwise negative bank balance! We’ll be spending the windfall on a trip to Scilly later this year. My wife is helping run a student field trip on St Mary’s during May and it’s my youngest daughters birthday during the same week. The lottery win means I can bring my 3 girls out on the boat and have a couple of nights camping altogether so Mum won’t miss her 3rd birthday.

I’ve found a few old photos of fond gig weekends spent on Scilly, you can take your pick!

Thank you once again. I have been telling my friends they ought to play the Scilly lottery, perhaps now they will ;-)

All the best
