Plymouth resident Diana Greenlees is the lucky winner of the Hannahs Big 250 Car Draw. The winning ticket was drawn by David Fitzgerald from the BBC when he attended the Amazing Children’s Christmas Party at Seale-Hayne at the weekend.
Diana visited Seale-Hayne this week to celebrate her win before picking up her brand new car from Speedwell Kia in Paignton. Retired teacher Diana bought her winning ticket at the Hannahs Christmas Fayre in November. Through her teaching career, Diana has been aware of Hannahs and their work with disabled children and adults for many years.
Diana said “I was shocked and delighted when I heard that I had won a car as I never win anything! I bought the ticket purely as a donation to Hannahs and it was by complete chance that it turned out to be a win. I am so pleased to be supporting such a worthwhile charity”.
Emma Boulton, Hannahs Fundraiser and Car Draw Organiser, said “We are delighted with the success of our first ever Car Draw which has raised over £15,000 for Hannahs. I would like to say a huge thank you to Martin Richards of Speedwell Kia Paignton for his very generous donation of a Kia Picanto. The Car Draw has given us a valuable opportunity to go out into the community and help raise awareness of Hannahs as well as raising vital funds. Many congratulations to our winner Diana and thank you to all our supporters for taking part in the draw”.

Notes to editors
Hannahs has been enriching the lives of children and young people for 250 years. One of the UK’s oldest charities, Hannahs is dedicated to empowering children, young people and adults with a range of disabilities. We are committed to challenging societal beliefs surrounding disabled people with the aim of making disability incidental.
Our mission is simple: to empower, advocate and enrich the lives of children and adults with disabilities. Our vision is to live in a society where people with disabilities experience the same opportunities, train, learn and live. We imagine a society that advocates recognition and encourages everyone to fulfil their true potential without judgment or limit: a society where disability is incidental.
Working across two sites in Devon – at Ivybridge and Seale-Hayne, Newton Abbot – Hannahs provides learning, care, support and real choice to children and adults with a range of disabilities. A dedicated and highly trained team of staff help our students and visitors at both sites to grow and learn with confidence and freedom. At Hannahs we provide the best education, care and opportunities on offer, in a homely and caring environment.
