A retired curtain maker from Sudbury was delighted after winning a luxurious Christmas hamper in a competition.

Sheila Nicholls entered the competition – run by TGA mobility in Sudbury – during one of her visits to the company’s showroom.

After her husband suffered a major stroke, Sheila began visiting the mobility specialists regularly to buy products to assist him.

She said the staff were always friendly and supportive when she went in.

“Since he had a stroke over six years ago, the support of TGA’s team has really helped,” said Sheila. “Visiting is always such a pleasant experience.

“I would like to thank them so much for this generous gift, especially as it’s my 75th birthday on Monday.”

Sheila, who has seven children, 17 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, spent most of the Christmas period at her husband’s bedside in hospital.

She said winning the Christmas hamper had given her a real boost.

“I am thoroughly delighted to have won this beautiful hamper,” she said. “It’s now taking pride of place on my dining room table.

“When I heard the news, I was so chuffed and went into the showroom the same day to collect my prize.”

TGA showroom manager Rachel Elding said the competition had proved popular.

“The TGA team and I would like to congratulate Sheila on winning our luxurious Christmas hamper competition – she fully deserves it,” she said.

“Mrs Nicholls is such a lovely woman and it is great to hear the difference our products have made to her husband’s comfort.”
