And the winner is…

And the winner is…

125752533Last month we launched a Facebook competition to give one lucky person the chance to win a whopping £1,000 towards creating their dream home. And we’re now pleased to be able to announce that the winner is Lauren Pilkington, from Leeds in West Yorkshire.

“I can’t believe I have won. I’m so pleased,” Lauren told us when we delivered the exciting news.

Lauren lives with her family in a terraced back-to-back house. She told us that they have recently added a partition wall to the dormer room upstairs, giving each of her children their own space. The partition wall means her kids no longer have to share a bedroom.

When we asked Lauren what she plan to do with the £1,000, she explained the funds would allow them to make further progress in the room and redecorate it, as well as introduce a skylight to let some natural light come flooding into the room, which currently only has a side window.

The family is also planning to lay brand new carpets on both sets of stairs and redecorate other rooms in the house. In addition to interior décor improvements, Lauren also wants to install a gate at the top of the set of steps leading to the cellar door. By doing this her kids will be able to play safely outside without needing to be fully supervised at all times.

Lauren’s parting words were: “This money would help us do this all sooner than planned. Thanks again!”
