Niomi Boontam, 27, from Bournemouth, has won the keys to our £500,000 London flat and a brand-new Land Rover Discovery Sport.
Niomi was told she had won the incredible property and the luxury SUV on a phone call with TV property expert and Raffle House ambassador, Sara Damergi, on August 4.
Update (August 6, 08:00): Full-length video can be found at the bottom of this article. (It's totally worth watching).
Raffle House is thrilled to announce that Niomi Boontam, aged 27 from Bournemouth, is the winner of its latest competition and will collect the keys to a £500,000 two-bed London apartment, and a brand-new Land Rover Discovery Sport in what is a life-changing win for the insurance consultant.
Niomi said: “It’s crazy. I never thought I’d actually win. This morning I was shaking, my hands were shaking, and I was thinking, this is not real but I checked on RaffleHouse.com and started reading it all and...oh my goodness! It’s amazing.
"I live with my other half and we’re renting and it’s a lovely location but we don’t
own it. I don’t have the words to describe this.
"This has just made lockdown worthwhile. I’m going to call my mum next and I
have no idea what’s she’s going to say. Thank you so much!”
As well as awarding the property and the car, Raffle House is also covering legal fees and there’s no Stamp Duty to pay. What’s more, Raffle House has raised a further total of £11,000 for its two homelessness charities, Housing for Women and Centrepoint.
Benno Spencer, CEO of Raffle House, said: “This is a good news story at a time when we all need one. We are beyond thrilled to announce our jackpot prize winner and, having spoken with Niomi, I know that she is over the moon.
“We founded Raffle House with the aim of giving as many people as possible the chance to get on the property ladder for the first time through the purchase of low-cost tickets.
“Making one of our customers’ dreams come true is a really proud moment for us. Helping Niomi escape generation rent is incredible, and being able to also hand over the keys to a new car at a time when she along with everyone else is feeling the pinch is an added bonus.
“Not only that, but we are pleased to have also been able to make sizable donations to two incredible charities, supporting the critical work they do in the homeless community. Our total charitable giving now equals £25,000.
“We are already raising even more for them, and we look forward to announcing a second homeowner through our next competition in time for Christmas.”
We'll be publishing a more in-depth interview with Niomi tomorrow (August 6), as well as the full 5-minute phone reveal, and, next week, we've got a sit down with her at the property!
