WATCH: Harrogate woman wins £1,000 in time for Christmas with Slingsby Gin

A woman from Harrogate has received a £1,000 cash prize in time for Christmas thanks to Slingsby Gin and Your Harrogate.

A woman from Harrogate has received a £1,000 cash prize in time for Christmas thanks to Slingsby Gin. We teamed up with Slingsby to give you the chance to nominate someone worthy of the huge cash prize this festive season. In what has been a challenging year for us all, the Slingsby team wanted to make Christmas extra special for one person - and that winner is Helen, nominated by her sister Rebecca! Rebecca, her two daughters Scarlett and Harriet and her parents joined Nick Hancock to surprise Helen on her doorstep with the cash prize, some Slingsby gin and a smart speaker. Speechless, Helen said:

"It feels brilliant, thank you. It's a big shock."
Speaking about why she nominated her sister, Rebecca said she immediately thought of Helen when she saw the competition on Your Harrogate. She said:
"Helen has three children and is struggling to afford to buy their Christmas presents. She deserves this more than anyone I know. "She is an amazing Mum, always putting their needs first and the children are a real credit to her."
