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.
