Gary made the decision to enter the Charity Lottery as having attended on a number of occasions as a patient, both as a Serving and Retired Officer, he realises that a Charity as worthwhile as the PTC requires support and the Lottery is a brilliant way to do this.
Gary plans to spend his winning cheque on a well deserved Holiday and made the following, heartfelt comments about his feelings towards the PTC.

Mr Martin Richard Johnson, serving Dog Handler with the Ministry of Defence Force won the top prize of £2,000 in our Festive Lottery Superdraw
Upon signing up to the Police Treatment Centres, Martin noticed the opportunity to enter the Charity Lottery and thought it would be a great way to contribute to a fantastic cause whilst at the same time earning the opportunity to benefit from a chance of scooping a prize but in all honesty, never really expected to.
Martin has not required the use of either of the Centres within his career but appreciates the peace of mind knowing it is available, should he need time and space to recover and rehabilitate.
Martin plans to spend his winnings on a lovely holiday for him and his wife, he then hopes to use the remainder to contribute saving towards the deposit for a new home.
We wish Martin and his wife all the best.
Mrs Susan Flannigan, a Retired Officer from the Durham Constabulary won one of our five spot prizes in our Festive Lottery Superdraw, the Police Treatment Centre Cycling jersey signed by the Australia Cycling team
Mrs Flannigan was delighted to win the Cycling jersey as her and her family are massive cycling fans. Mrs Flannigan first heard about the PTC Charity Lottery when it was very first established via a communication at work and although Mrs Flannigan has been fortunate enough to never need the use of either Centres, she knows through the testimony of many of her colleagues who have, the invaluable service that the Police treatment Centres provide. "I know colleagues who have attended the Centres who have benefited immensely from the treatment they have received and who speak very highly of the services provided with regards to recuperation both physically and mentally. I decided to become a member of the Lottery to raise funds for this valuable service with the added benefit that I may one day win a prize".
We wish Mrs Flannigan and her family all the best and hope that they enjoy their well deserved prize.
