After a difficult year for so very many people, The Mayor of Ferryhill, Councillor Joe Makepeace wanted to spread a little Christmas joy and arranged a Christmas Prize Draw to do just that. The idea was to provide three lucky winners with a Cash Prize in time for Christmas, whilst also raising money for two local good causes, namely Seconds Out Boxing Academy and Ferryhill Indoor Bowling Club, both based at the Ferryhill Sports & Education Centre.
The prize draw took place on Monday 21st December 2020 in Ferryhill Town Hall and the winning tickets were drawn by Dr David Willis (now retired) of Ferryhill Surgery, the winning numbers are listed below.
1st Prize Ticket No. 0766 £440.50
2d Prize Ticket No. 1946 £264.30
3rd Prize Ticket No. 1781 £176.20
The draw raised £1762, 50% of which will be divided equally between Seconds Out Boxing Academy & Ferryhill Indoor Bowling Club, meaning each club will receive £440.50, with the remainder of the proceeds being awarded to the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Prize Winners.
Winners are asked to contact Ferryhill Town Hall on 01740 652157 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a convenient time to collect their prizes, winning tickets will need to be provided to claim the prize.
Councillor Joe Makepeace said “ With the help and support of local residents, those helping to sell tickets and those who bought tickets, after such a difficult year I am happy to have been able to support two well deserving local groups and also bring a little Christmas joy the winners of the draw.”
