Win a Tyneside Home!

15 October 2021

What would you do if you won a 3-bedroom home for just £1?!

Live mortgage and rent free? Rent the property out for an additional income? Sell it? Give it to charity?

Someone is going to have to make this very decision when they win this spacious family home in South Tyneside.

Adam and Liz Thwaites decided to sell their house but wanted to do some good at the same time. After seeing other charities benefit from house raffles, they chose to support Grace House, a charity close to their hearts and are working hard to sell tickets for this incredible competition.

Adam said “Liz, my wife, works at Grace House and one day I was talking to the Registered Manager there about the need for a wheelchair accessible swing. Emily, my daughter, loves the swings in the park so much it made me feel sad that not everyone had the opportunity to have a go on them. We did a bit of googling and saw these swings are around £13,000 and I was shocked that they are so expensive.  We decided that we wanted to help and set a very ambitious goal of raising £50,000 so that not only would they be able to provide the swing but also help fund the charity so that it can continue the great work it does in the area.”

Laura Forbes, Corporate Fundraiser said “this is an incredibly generous way to support a charity and we are delighted Adam and Liz chose Grace House. The family are all working so hard to sell the tickets and are determined to raise as much for us as possible. If you are able to share their story to help raise awareness it would be appreciated!”

The draw is set to take place on Christmas Eve at the latest so you could be waking up on Christmas morning with something bigger in your stocking than you expected!
