A family are raffling off a four-bedroom home for just £2.50 after a stroke left their grandmother unable to reach the bathroom.

Ida Spinola, 87, suffered a stroke in 2017 which made it too difficult to move around her home and now can no longer access the upstairs bathroom in her Streatham home, south east London.

Her granddaughter Michele said: “We wanted to sell the house because my grandmother had a stroke and we can no longer give her a shower.

“I believe it’s a win win situation as someone will get the house for £2.50 and we will be able to move on with our lives.”

With no wet room on the bottom floor, Ida has not been able to wash properly, reports MyLondon.

“She used to be very clean,” added Michele. “We have to flannel wash her.”

Alongside Ida and Michele there are six other family members living in the five bedroom house.

Currently living at the home is Ida, Arnaldo, 58, Maria, 53, Michele, 27, Maria, 24, Gabriel, 21, Jasmin, two, and Jason Junior, one.

The family decided to put their house up for raffle after estate agents were unable to sell it over the summer months.

The home was put on the market at the beginning of June but the family took it off after there were no interested buyers.

After being inspired by another house prize competition the family now hope to make one lucky winner a happy homeowner.

“It will be really helpful if we are able to sell it,” continued Michele. “It would be life changing for someone. People have a better chance of winning the house than winning the lottery.”

The 1930s house has also been renovated by Arnoldo, who works as a builder, and his architect daughter Maria.
