Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum raised £100 in 2015 with a lucky square board, thanks to Dorothy Copsey donating one of her miniature houses.

All the squares were sold in time for the museum’s Victorian Christmas when the winner, Mrs Marshall, collected her prize from museum chairman Gill Noble.

Museum staff thanked Mrs Copsey for her generosity, which followed on from last year’s donation of a crocheted shawl from Queenie Watkinson, which also raised £100.

The first fundraising event in 2016 will be an antique valuation day on Saturday January 23 in the museum’s community room.

Tickets for the 150 club lottery are available and most directors have tickets for sale.
