Back in April this year Michael Hintlian from Boston won our Tom Wood prize draw after donating £5 towards the running costs of Oriel Colwyn. Many thanks to all who donated, your help and support is greatly appreciated.

The signed books and print have now arrived in Boston (thanks for the wonderful 'selfie' Michael).
