“We know just how difficult this year has been, and helping charities such as the Alzheimer’s Society is more important than ever. They provide vital support for people across the UK and need donations to continue making a difference.
“We would like to thank everyone who purchased a ticket or provided a prize – thank you all and have a very merry Christmas.
