Local Torbay resident, Kathryn was delighted to learn of her big prize win recently in the Cockington Green Heart Appeal Annual Raffle. Lucky Kathryn, of Paignton, has scooped the top prize, a whopping £1,000, in the annual draw and visited the Farm to meet some of the team, last week. 

Kathryn said,

“I was really shocked and thrilled on hearing this fantastic news. I bought the ticket whilst at this summer’s Occombe Festival. How brilliant that we came for a party and a few drinks and have ended up winning £1,000!”

The raffle was drawn on Wednesday 31st October at Occombe Farm Cafe and a cheque for £1,000 was presented to the winner on Thursday 8th November. 

Damian Offer, Chief Executive, TCCT, said:

“We are delighted for Kathryn and would like to thank her and indeed all those who bought a raffle ticket and supported the Green Heart Appeal.  This project is restoring key heritage assets in Cockington for the benefit of the local community and visitors. We have so far successfully restored the derelict Linhay, Gamekeeper’s Cottage, desilted the ponds and are currently restoring the landscaping around The Lakes. Our annual Green Heart Raffle helps raise much needed funds towards the overall £1.66M cost of the restoration scheme and we could not achieve this without such generous support”

Whilst the Trust have successfully notified the first and second prize winners they have been unable to contact the third prize recipient. They would really like to hear from them, so if you have raffle ticket number 08462, please do get in touch because you have won £50!
