THIS week we went off to the Brighter Blinds showroom to surprise Rob Ashton.

Unfortunately, when we arrived, he wasn’t there! Thanks to the help of Rob’s mum, Olive we were still able to surprise him with the cheque.

We snuck into the warehouse just next to the showroom and we waited for him to return. Luckily, he was only a couple of minutes away and we were able to jump out and surprise him!

Managing director Rob was made up with his £2,000 win and he intends to spend his prize on a holiday to Menorca.

He also said he would make a donation to the East Lancashire Masonic Charity, as he is the District Mentor of the Bury district.
