Superdraw winner Summer 2014

 

July, 2014

Tring, Hertfordshire 

The wonderful £4000 winner of The Hospice Lottery’s Summer Superdraw, Mrs. Walker from Kings Langley, was “over the Moon” to have won,

“I’ve never won this much before” she exclaimed as the cheque was handed over, “I’m so excited”.

Mrs Walker has been playing the Hospice Lottery for over 4 years now after she was signed up by Membership Promotor, Peter Tarbox, at Sainsbury’s in Apsley.

Her Husband was cared for at home by the Specialist Care team from one of HLP’s partners, The Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted.

“He received such wonderful care from St. Francis, I was only too happy to sign up for the Lottery to give something back. I never thought I’d win anything, but as they say “If you aren’t in it, you can’t win it!”

As far as spending the winnings, Mrs Walker, who works at a local Bathroom and Kitchen hardware company, said

“Oh my son is getting married next year and I have said he can have some towards the reception. My other son is happy with that – provided I spend some of the money on myself!”

“It’s funny, when you don’t have much money you think ‘Oo I’d love this or that’ but when you  actually get some you can’t decide how to spend it!”

The only thing that is for sure as far as Mrs Walker goes, is that she wants extra tickets for the Winter Superdraw, because all her friends and colleagues want some.

The Superdraws always bring in valuable funds for our Partner Hospices and raise awareness across their catchment areas. This draw raised over £44,000 for them and we hope the Winter draw will do just as well if not better!
