The top prize winner of £2,500 in The Hospice Lottery Partnership’s 20th Anniversary Bonus Draw, Mr E, has big plans for his winnings. He is looking forward to having a family party when his son from New Zealand visits in August, and with a total of 11 grandchildren across the family it will be quite the party!
He is also planning on having a celebratory party with his neighbours. As well as the odd treat in June when he goes on a pre-planned trip to the RAF Association Hotel in Weston Super-Mare.
Mr E also very generously donated £2,500 of his winnings to us, which is a wonderful gesture and money that will be very gratefully received by the Hospice Partners.
Of winning he said:
“Hospices do such a fantastic job of looking after people, and playing the weekly lottery seemed like a good idea to help support their care. It was a very unexpected surprise to hear I had won the top prize of £2,500."
Hospice Lottery supporters have been raising funds through the weekly draw and bi-annual Superdraws since the first draw in 1998 and have funded over £10 million of hospice care to date.
