Joan Chatwood has been involved with Chestnut Tree House for more than a dozen years.
“It had been open for only a short while when I first went round the place. And I immediately felt that I had to do something for this wonderful organisation. Along with some friends in Petworth I’ve visited Chestnut every year – but I’m 85 now and haven’t been for a while.”
Joan won £250 with the Chestnut Tree House Lottery, and said: “I thought it was just another letter. But when I opened it I thought ‘Oh my God, this can’t be true!’ because I had never won anything in my life before. I was absolutely staggered.
“I’m giving the money to my son, Tim, whose hairdressing business closed recently. So this will help him when he starts up again.”
