One Doncaster family woke up to a white Christmas today.
Earlier this month, Crabbie’s, makers of ginger beer, searched the length and breadth of the country, to find one person who truly deserved a ‘Guaranteed White Christmas’.
Crabbie’s urged Brits to nominate a friend or family member who needed a pick me up or a reward for their good nature and Donna Wilson from Doncaster was named the winner of a Guaranteed White Christmas!
Julie McLaughlin, Donna’s sister who lives just up the road from her, put her forward for the seasonal surprise.
She said: “Her family have had a really tough 2013, and I wanted to do something to put a smile on their faces. Donna’s husband, Ian, was diagnosed with cancer in March, losing his fight only seven months later.”
Donna and her children’s house in Woodside View, Bircotes, was blanketed in snow, surrounded by Christmas trees, lights, snow machine and a couple of snowmen, while she and the family were out for the day.
Said Donna: “I cannot believe how amazing this is! It’s been a really hard year for all our family, and this will certainly help get us into the festive spirit a little more and enjoy our White Christmas thanks to Crabbie’s and my sister Julie.”
