30th September 2015

wessex word winner helen toft 

It was the longest running Wessex Word ever - it reached a staggering £660 and lasted an amazing 27 weeks!  When we started it, Ed Milliband was leader of the Labour Party, there were five members of One Direction, and Jeremy Clarkson was a Top Gear presenter!

I went to see our winner, Helen Toft from Weymouth, who picked up £660!

And we had top funny bloke Rhod Gilbert on the show.  He's one of a number of comedians backing this year's Stoptober campaign.  Dr Dawn Porter from Embarrassing Bodies also spoke to us about swapping fags for gags:
