UKIP's Sovereign Draw lottery has turned up it's first lucky gold sovereign winner, party supporter Sanjay Puri from Rochester, Kent.
Married dad-of-two Sanjay, 43, was the first name selected by the Sovereign Draw computer in the Party's new fundraising initiative and was delighted with the result.
"It's the first thing I've entered, and I'm the first to win," he said."I think now I should become a UKIP member!"
Sanjay runs his own business, Ruxley Manor Leisure Buildings based in Sidcup, Kent and is married to Joyti with two sons, Rahul, four, and Shivam, aged two.
He said: "I don't exactly remember what prompted me to sign up for the Draw but I'm very pleased I did."
Party Treasurer Stuart Wheeler said he was delighted the first winner had been drawn and said he hoped it would encourage even more interest among UKIP supporters and members.
"Congratulations to Sanjay on being our inaugural winner," Mr Wheeler said.
"The Sovereign Draw is a fantastic idea and a fabulous prize, as well as a novel way to raise money for the Party.
"I'd like to encourage those who haven't yet entered to have a look at how it works and download an application form at the earliest opportunity."
