Billy Graham won the top lottery prize earlier this year - interviewed afterwards at Castlebrae, Billy explains why he plays.
Ian Chalmers won the top prize of £1000 earlier this year
"Twice during my Police career and once since retiring, I’ve benefited from the superb treatment and facilities at Castlebrae and Harrogate. The standard of care in both centres is simply outstanding. I can’t thank enough the staff who got me back on the road to recovery. When the opportunity arose to take part in the monthly lottery to support the PTCs, I did so willingly and gratefully - it’s not so much to ask. They say timing is everything in life and while there is no bad time to win the top prize, to win it while recovering from emergency eye surgery leaves me speechless. It will come as no surprise to those who know me that I’ll probably put the money towards a wee holiday somewhere off the beaten track where I will take far too many photographs. Thanks so much for the prize, but thanks so much more for the care and support you give serving and retired officers every single day."
Dom Wilcox won £1000
"Thank you very much to the Police Treatment Centres Lottery for my recent win. My cheque arrived 4 days before my family holiday and will be well spent on my 5 grandchildren! Not only is the Lottery a great way of helping the Police Treatment Centres to operate and to provide the great service that they do for officers/PCSOs but there is every chance that you can win a nice sum of money, as I have just proved!"
Chris Gale won £100 - second time lucky as he also won the top prize back in 2014!
"No-one was more surprised than me to hear that my number came up again in the lottery. We didn't enter to win, however, it is a nice surprise when it happens. I have never had cause to draw upon the services of the centre (to date!!), but I know that many folk do, and reading the newsletters they are always very grateful and appreciative of the quality of services offered."
Paul Airey, a retired Police Officer from South Yorks won the 48" HD Smart TV donated by Sainsburys in our November Superdraw.
Paul was delighted to take delivery -
"I never win anything! I joined the lottery to support the PTCs and the great work they do."
Mike McDonald won £1000
“I subscribed to the PTC throughout my Police career and during the latter part of my service I had occasion to visit Castlebrae following a shoulder injury. The treatment I received was second to none and I cannot praise the facility and staff highly enough. I continued my membership after I retired and to further support the Unit, I had no hesitation in joining the PTC Lottery”
When asked how he planned to spend the money Mike said “My youngest son, Neil got married the day after I received the cheque so I think it’s fair to say that’s where the money is going although I’m sure I’ll manage a wee treat for myself!!”
Clare Lang was delighted to win £50
"This is fantastic news, you have made my day! "I have worked for Police Scotland for over 11 years having spent 6 of them as a police Constable. I joined the PTC lottery after attending Castlebrae for a shoulder injury two years ago, The physiotherapy I received was second to none and after 2 weeks my injury was practically healed, I benefited not just physically but emotionally from my stay and felt it was so important to support the Charity so that their great work could continue. I can't speak highly enough about Castlebrae and their wonderful staff."
