Keith Ward, who lives in Brixham and volunteers with Pilgrim, recently won £2,000 playing the Torbay Lottery.
Pilgrim is the oldest surviving sailing trawler that was built and rigged in the historic port of Brixham. Thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund she underwent a major restoration in 2009-2013 and now sails the coasts of Devon and Cornwall and across to the Channel Islands, Brittany and the Isles of Scilly each Summer. Foundation Managing Director Rod Coveney commented, “Like many of our volunteers, Keith and Jasmine commit a great deal of time and energy to keep Pilgrim sailing so it’s nice to see them benefit in this way. The Torbay Lottery is a way for local people to support their favourite charity and we are most grateful for the proceeds that come to us.”
