We’re all winners  

"I never expected to win but couldn't have done it at a better time! My car had a problem the week before which was going to cost me £1800. I got my car fixed and gave the rest to my daughter - it was her birthday that week."

"I couldn't believe it when I heard I had won. I'm glad I can play the Poppy Lottery whilst supporting our Armed Forces. I've spent the winnings on my family."
