On Saturday night Carers Trust Vice President and supporter for many years, Hilary Devey CBE, took part in the Million Pound Drop with her friend Radio 1 DJ Greg James.

Despite an early set-back and a nail-biting last few questions which had us all the edge of our seats, Hilary and James turned it around in style becoming the first contestants to play the ‘final drop’, doubling their winnings to £50,000.

This money will be split evenly between the three charities they chose to support: Carers Trust, Stroke Association, and The Lord Taverners.

Hilary’s win is yet another example of her tireless efforts raising awareness and much needed funds for carers. She tweeted after the event:

“What a cliff-hanger @the1mpounddrop was on Saturday night and I am so glad we raised money for our charities xxx”

All of us at Carers Trust are incredibly grateful to Hilary and Greg for their efforts raising such a wonderful amount. Well done!
