The Friends of Headstone Manor, a group of dedicated volunteers at the historic Headstone Manor Park, have emerged as winners of the £1,000 prize in Harrow Wins’ 4th birthday prize draw.
Harrow Wins, a community lottery, offers tickets at just £1 each, providing participants with a chance to win the £25,000 jackpot while supporting local charities and community organizations.
The prize money, combined with over £2,000 raised through their supporters’ purchase of lottery tickets over the past four years, presents an incredible opportunity for the Friends of Headstone Manor to further their initiatives.
Their plans include the installation of outdoor art displays, acquiring better litter picking kits, and enhancing the park’s natural beauty by introducing more bulbs, wildflowers, and hedgerow plants. Over the years, Headstone Manor Park has undergone a remarkable transformation, captivating visitors with its abundant flora, fauna, and remarkable historical significance.
Adrian (Adie) Doyle, a dedicated volunteer at Friends of Headstone Manor, expressed his gratitude, stating, “If you visit the beautiful Headstone Manor Park, you will find it full of flowers and birds – but there’s so much more that happens on the historic grounds.
“From regular water monitoring and pollution-filtering reed beds to community events such as Bat Walks and Children’s storytelling, there’s lots to see and do. Not forgetting the huge amount of work that recently went into achieving Green Flag status.
“Volunteer-led park groups like us are transforming our borough – and members of the public buying Harrow Wins tickets contribute to the funds to bring our projects to life. Thank you to everyone supporting us.”
Harrow Wins, led by Harrow Council in collaboration with various voluntary organisations, welcomes participation from all community members who seek to make a positive impact on Harrow and its residents.
Whether representing a local charity, sports club, project, park user group, scout or cadet organisation, Harrow Wins provides an avenue for funding through the sale of lottery tickets.
Cllr Jean Lammiman, Cabinet Member for Community and Culture, extended her congratulations to the winners and expressed her delight that the prize money would continue to empower the dedicated volunteers of Headstone Manor Park.
She emphasised that Harrow Wins is not solely focused on monetary rewards but also serves as a means of fundraising for local groups, including charities, scout troops, and sports organisations.
Cllr Lammiman expressed her gratitude to all participants, stating, “I’d like to thank everyone who is taking part.”
