THE manager of a Woking & Sam Beare Hospice Shop in Virginia Water – and her team of volunteers – were the very surprised but lucky winners of the charities’ most recent Weekly Lottery draw.
Cheryl Moreton and her dedicated crew picked up a cheque worth £1,000 last week, which will be partly used to fund a team trip and meal at Great Fosters country house.
Staggered Cheryl beamed: “I was so surprised to find out I had bought the winning ticket. It’s such a good cause and it’s only £1 to enter so I’ve bought tickets before – but you never really think it’ll be you.
“We’ve got 14 volunteers at this shop who all work really hard, so when I thought about what to spend the money on, I wanted to do something for them as well. We’ve planned a day out in May to go to Great Fosters for a meal and then I’ll be using some of the money to buy more lottery tickets and, who knows, I might win again!”
The first prize of £1,000 is up for grabs each week, with the odds of winning substantially better than the National Lottery. Runner-up prizes range from £5 to £50.
Anyone who enters can be confident that all of the profits go directly towards supporting patients and their families living
with life limiting illnesses in the local community.
