Robert Russell from Raphoe, received one of the best phonecalls of his life a few weeks ago, when a representative from Rehab called to tell him that he had won €11,500 in the Bonanza Draw. Robert, who has worked has a farmer’s assistant on a pig farm for over 40 years, travelled to Dublin with his partner Angela and daughter Margaret to collect his winnings. He said “It’s great to be here today to collect my winnings. Margaret is the designated driver. Although she prefers driving down country roads rather than the motorway so it took us a little bit longer to get here than we thought!”

“I decided to enter the Rehab Bonanza draw after receiving a phone call from the Bonanza team. And then I promptly forgot all about it, until I got the phone call from Wayne in Rehab. My first reaction on hearing of the win was total disbelief. I was gob smacked! I shouted the news to Angela, who couldn’t believe our luck either. This is my first ever win, so they are both over the moon. We have plans to get married in the middle of 2015, so this win couldn’t have come at a better time. I’d recommend the Bonanza draw to everyone because I believe it to be a truly wonderful cause.”
