An Artistic Scratch Day Entrepreneur
The girl whose winnings have helped her to spread positivity every day…

We’re back with another winners’ story, and believe us, this one is truly impressive. Who would’ve thought £100 could change your life so much? Well, for 21-year-old student Molly, it spurred her on to set up her own, successful business!
“I wanted to make the most of it, so I put it towards my future,'' Molly said, after winning the £100 jackpot on Scratch Day. At the time, Molly was an undergraduate student studying history, but she’d always dreamt of being a fine artist. Her winnings allowed her to buy particular art supplies, try out new designs and take some risks, with a mission to sell them!
Shortly after, with the new products she’d created, she set up Sophie Stokes - where she sells everyday objects detailed with her designs. Pretty cool, if you ask us. Her business has since snowballed, and Molly now hopes for her products to end up in famous department stores like Liberty’s!
Sophie Stokes is all about spreading happiness and positivity. Molly is looking to open up the conversation about mental health and wants to “promote emotional stability in everyday life” by selling colouring books and leading mindfulness sessions, which we think is so lovely!
Have you got a winning story like Molly’s that you would like to share with us? We’d love to hear it! If not, download Scratch Day here, and this could be you!
