Our million reasons to say thanks

Saying it with flowers: Hollie and Brooklyn Peart painted planters as gifts for key workers PICTURE: NATIONAL LOTTERY/PA

A COUPLE who scooped a £1million lottery win have been making wooden planters to bring cheer to key workers.

Carpenter Daniel Peart, 29, and wife Charlotte came up with the idea while trying to keep their children occupied during lockdown in Peterborough.

‘We joked it was their design and technology lesson,’ said Mrs Peart, 30, who won the money on a EuroMillions draw in 2018. ‘We hit on the idea to start making the boxes to be distributed as a “thank you” to key workers.’

They were painted by Brooklyn, 12, and Hollie, seven, planted with flowers and shrubs and given to the children of key workers at Alderman Jacobs Primary School and to local police officers. ‘We are all incredibly grateful for everything they are doing for us,’ Mrs Peart added.
