Sam from Hartlepool was the lucky winner of a £100 Love2Shop voucher after taking part in our recent peer research survey that was investigating autistic people's experiences of being diagnosed with autism.
Sam told us:
"I wanted to fill it in as soon as I seen it due to it possible resulting in very important data. It may help change the future for people who (like myself) are autistic, for the better.
"I found the survey easy to follow, if I don't find something easy I tend to not complete.
"It was a surprise to see in my mailbox that I'd won! Sometimes you think when filling surveys if the prizes are real, well yes, they are real! I received the voucher via email. I play for a local football team and I spent my voucher on some new golden football boots and football accessories! I am most grateful."
