Our Vera Summer Raffle has been drawned on Tuesday 21st August and the winner was Lilly Jones!

The raffle ticket was bought by her son Paul, without telling her, because he knew she was a huge fan of Vera, and she was 'ridiculously excited' when he phoned to tell her about winning. She's had a tough few years; her husband was an invalid and she cared for him until he died. Then almost immediately afterwards, she was diagnosed with cancer. She's just finished a period of treatment. So it's terrific taht she's going to have a very special day.

Well done Lily! Have a great day and thank you very much Ann Cleeves for donating this fantastic prize and helping us raise £1,500.
