HELPING THE HUB

HELPING THE HUB

The most humbling bit about running the Livingroom House Lottery with Hope for a Child was raising so much money for worthy causes. The hardworking team behind the lottery sold all 5,000 tickets before the deadline raising an amazing £260,000 for Hope for a Child, The HUB, the Saumarez Park Playground Appeal and Action for Children.

It was with real pleasure that Livingroom and Hope for a Child presented a cheque for £10,000 to The HUB’s treasurer Karen Gamble. Karen told us how important the donation is to the charity.

This week the UK Chancellor, Philip Hammond, announced that lettings agents in England will be banned from charging fees to tenants as part of his first Autumn Statement.

Many agents on the island follow this model and it reflects a very fair market for tenants on the island.

All 5,000 tickets were sold and the first prize, a stunning house forming part of the Infinity Gardens development worth £430,000, was won by ticket number 2617.

The winner of the house, who has opted to remain anonymous, said: “We are so happy. It’s life changing. We never win anything so this is just amazing and surreal, I am not sure it has sunk in just yet!”
