A DURSLEY family have won £100,000 off their mortgage in a national competition.

David Llewellyn and Jessica Maw and their two young sons were surprised by a visit from former Love Islander, Olivia Bowen, on December 11, who told them they'd won.

The family, who live at the Littlecombe development in Dursley, had entered the St. Modwen Homes, Recommend a Friend Competition.

To enter, existing St. Modwen Homes homeowners had to refer a friend, and once they had legally completed, both parties received £250 and were entered into the national prize draw.

David, who recommended a friend back in December 2020, said: “My partner and I are absolutely speechless.

"There really is no way to put into words what this money will do for us – it really will change our lives.

“We never thought we would be the winners.

"I will never forget that feeling, opening the door that morning and seeing the team on the other side.

"We are extremely grateful.”
