Meet Joanne, the Litter-Picking Champion from Kent
LitterLotto strikes again..
Joanne Wilkinson, a dedicated volunteer coordinator for visually impaired people, has struck gold and won the latest LitterLotto Weekly Jackpot.
A passionate volunteer with a Heart of Gold Joanne Wilkinson has been a dedicated volunteer for over 17 years, working tirelessly to improve the lives of visually impaired people in her community. As a volunteer coordinator, she recruits and trains volunteers to assist visually impaired people and organizes social groups to combat social isolation. Her work has brought her immense joy, and she is proud of the positive impact she has made in her community.
Like many of our winners, Joanne discovered LitterLotto through social media. After seeing a post on Facebook, she was intrigued and decided to give it a go. Joanne now uses the app regularly, picking up litter at least 3-4 times a week while walking her dog, and even during her running breaks! Making a Difference, one litter pick at a time Joanne's passion for volunteering extends beyond her day job.
As a family, they actively support the Woodland Trust by becoming members and picking up litter during their walks. Joanne has been encouraging her friends and family to join her in her litter-picking efforts, and the positive response has been heartwarming.
With her newfound winnings, Joanne plans to support her daughters' passions. Her daughter in Australia needs new cricket equipment, while her other daughter is raising funds for a trip to Eswatini as part of a World Challenge event. Joanne is also looking forward to her upcoming 50th birthday in July and is excited to celebrate with her family.
Joanne's love for animals doesn't stop at her furry companion, Otto. She also fosters trainee guide dogs and sometimes has an extra four-legged participant on her litter picks. In addition, Joanne is running her first marathon in April, just ahead of her milestone birthday!
Joanne is a shining example of how small actions can make a big difference. We're thrilled to have her as our latest LitterLotto Weekly Jackpot winner, and we're grateful for the impact she's making in her community. If you haven't tried LitterLotto yet, we encourage you to give it a go and join Joanne in making the world a cleaner place, one litter pick at a time!
