In April of 2012, Falkirk resident, Melanie Greig, was surprised on her doorstep at home by the PCH Prizes Team with a giant cheque for £20,000! Melanie entered the FREE £20,000 Jubilee free prize draw online which offered the chance to win big cash prizes for free.
Melanie said: "PCH Prizes could not have knocked on my door at a better time, I'm absolutely delighted. I've been entering the free prize draws on the website every day for the past year and never dreamt that I'd win!"
This £20k windfall came at just the right time for Melanie who was due to embark on a 4x4 European Rally in aid of Help for Heroes a couple of weeks later. Her team had been fundraising since 14th April and were struggling to raise all the money needed for their equipment, supplies and truck.
The Help for Heroes 4x4 European Rally launched on Armed Forces Day in 2010 and has since raised over £410,000 for the charity. The 2012 event started on 16th June and 40 vehicles, including Melanie's, travelled for 16 days, following the path and telling the story of the Allied Invasion through Europe.
This latest Prize Draw giveaway of £20,000 brings the total amount given away by PCH to over £130 million
It's been a fantastic first year for us, and with £100,000; £60,000; £15,000 and an unbelievable £2,500-a-week for life still up for grabs on the site we're not showing any signs of slowing down!
So learn from Melanie's success and make sure you enter the Prize Draws as often as you can – every day really is another chance to win!
Best of luck!
