John Dilkes, a retired plumber from Loughborough, won the top £1,000 prize. He said:
“I was so shocked to win – it was such a surprise! Everyone says it doesn’t happen to them but it does! Since I retired, I’ve been converting my work van into a campervan and this money will help me to finish the job.”
John is planning trips to Scotland and Croatia to indulge in his passion for wild swimming, as soon as the pandemic is over and he is able to travel.
