A LOCAL mum and her family were the fortunate winners of a charity's 25th anniversary celebratory fundraiser.
Home-Start Uttlesford made and raffled off a special Jubilee Quilt - complete with a Home-Start 'H' - towards the end of last year to raise some cash for the charity.
And the lucky recipient was Hilary Russell.
"It is a beautiful quilt - a labour of love - and I feel very fortunate to own it," said Mrs Russell.

"My young daughter thinks it will look perfect on her bed and since her name begins with an H and there is the Home-Start 'H' featured on the quilt I think I will let her have it for the time being."
Home-Start Uttlesford supports young families with children under the age of five in the district. To find out more about the charity, call 01799 520728 or visit the website at homestartuttlesford.co.uk
