£100k winners

Christmas has come early for one lucky Dorset couple – who have scooped £100,000 in a “life-changing” giveaway

Retirees, Elizabeth “Libby” Hewlett and her husband Martyn, won the incredible sum of money after entering a nationwide competition from RoyaleLife – the nation’s leading bungalow provider for the over 45s. The Hewletts decided to take their chances after discovering the competition was open to all new RoyaleLife customers who bought a home between March 1st 2021 and 30th November 2021.

The couple were already in the process of purchasing a stylish two bedroom bungalow at RoyaleLife’s stunning Silver Mists development in St Leonards, meaning they were eligible to join the draw for the tax-free lump sum. After they were drawn as winners on December 10th, the thrilled pair were informed of the incredible news by RoyaleLife ambassador Jane McDonald, who had recorded a personal video message to the lucky duo. The video was shown to Libby and Martyn by Ben Smith, RoyaleLife’s Marketing Director, who, along with delighted members of the Silver Mists sales team, presented the couple with a giant cheque, champagne and flowers.

Ben said, “With such a high-demand for single storey homes – and retirees facing a huge financial burden thanks to the pandemic – we thought our exciting prize draw will not only highlight our response to this national issue but change the life of somebody in the process. In fact, the odds were so good that the chances of winning trumped popular large-scale events such as the National Lottery.”

He added, “We had a fantastic response to the campaign, and we are over the moon that the Hewletts have won this incredible prize – they really are a lovely, deserving couple. We hope that the money will bring them a huge amount of comfort and joy.”

Silver Mists is a residential development set within the beautiful location of St Leonards, Dorset. A true hidden gem in the RoyaleLife crown, the development is set in beautiful surroundings close to the New Forest and Moors Valley Country Park, while offering easy access to the idyllic Mudeford Quay, as well as nearby shopping in Bournemouth and Poole.

Prices for a two bedroom bungalow start from £275,000.
