Line-dancing Sevenoaks grandmother wins Gardening Direct’s £15,000 national prize draw

The lucky winner of Gardening Direct’s fantastic £15,000 prize draw competition has been presented with her cheque.


Keen Sevenoaks gardener and line-dancer, Val Philp, was thrilled when Gardening Direct rang to tell that she had won.

When presented with her cheque by Fiona Pickering (Gardening Direct’s Customer Services Director), Val said “As a long-standing Gardening Direct customer I am absolutely thrilled to have won the prize. It could have not come at a better time for me as I have recently moved house and have a lot to do in my new home.”

Grandmother Val has two sons and two daughters, and has been a keen line-dancer for many years, dressing up in full ‘glitz and glamour’ costumes to take part. A long-standing member of the Womens’ Institute, Val is also an expert upholsterer and great dog lover.  She plans to use some of her prize money to visit family in Australia later this year.
