Whilst she never envisaged she would sell her home via a raffle, she has been trapped by the economy and her situation of needing to move on with a single income.

She said: "I have been ready to move onto a bigger home for some time and lockdown has made me more determined to do so. My two children and I are currently working, learning, playing, cooking and dining in one living space and it's taking its toll. We dream of moving to a 3 bed with a garden closer to my twin sister for support." Wendy adds that "Even though we have outgrown the place, many would dream of owning a lovely 2 bed apartment in such a great location!"

Home raffles are fast becoming a popular way to sell properties in such uncertain times.

Wendy said: "I am so driven knowing that this is going to change someone's life. The winner could live in it mortgage free, rent it out or sell it on!"
