£100 Floodline winner is just a mile from the sea

Floodline Lottery winner Richard Killick, right, of Main Road, Wrangle, receives his £100 cash prize from the February draw sponsor Mark Leafe, of Boston-based flood protection company Lincs Flood Defence.

Mr Killick, whose home is only about a mile from the sea, won the monthly prize when he registered for automated flood warnings from the Environment Agency.

There is now a chance for another £100 winner in the March Floodline Lottery draw.

So far the Floodline Lottery has awarded £300 in £100 cash prizes to three lucky winners who all live in a flood risk area and signed up to Floodline

This month's Floodline Lottery sponsor is UK Flood Barriers, whose highly-experienced project planners, surveyors, installers and customer service advisors have been working in Boston since the 2013 flood helping to make properties more flood resilient.

To stand a chance of winning this month's £100 cash prize send your details to Boston Borough Council for sign-up to the Environment Agency's Floodline system, agreeing to receive flood warnings by landline, mobile phone, email and text message. It is best to sign up for as many of these as you can, giving more chance to be alerted to flood warnings whether at home, at work or away from your address for any other reason.

Generous sponsors - Lincs Flood Defence, of Boston, Kier, UK Flood Barriers and Gravitas (International) Ltd - have made cash available for five monthly £100 prize draws between December and April.

The Floodline Lottery is open to flood-risk residents in Boston borough, East Lindsey and South Holland.
