Joseph’s ‘heartbeat’ was definitely racing when he discovered he was a lucky 1st prize winner on the Treetops Lottery. Paying him a visit with the giant cheque, Joseph told us how happy he was to win and that the timing is perfect as in 3 months he and his wife are expecting their first baby. Not surprisingly, some of the winnings will be spent on the new baby. The rest will go towards Joseph’s other love – his classic car business. His classic cars are hired out for weddings and other events and they even have the Ford Anglia car from the TV show Heartbeat in their collection.
Joseph had close relationships with Treetops when he was part of Ilkeston Rotary Club and his veteran great grandfather, George, was always a loyal supporter of the hospice. Believing that the charity does a lot of good, he signed up with our canvassers at Ilkeston carnival in 2018.
Congratulations Joseph and good luck with the new arrival.
