A patient, who attends Weston Hospicecare’s Day Hospice has won top prize in their Lottery Superdraw, drawn on Friday 13th December.
George Gardiner (73) who lives locally, regularly supports the Weston Hospicecare lottery and found out he had won £2,000 plus a luxury Christmas Hamper after his winning ticket was drawn.
George said: “When the lottery lady rang up, I thought it was a joke! I’ve never won anything in my life and I was absolutely delighted! I’ve decided to give the £2,000 to my wife as her Christmas present, as for the Christmas Hamper – I’ll see to that!
“I regularly support Weston Hospicecare’s lottery. As a big supporter of Hospice care in general, I see it as a way to keep the care going. I’d play even if I wasn’t benefiting from the care myself at the moment because it’s so important and needed by so many.
“I buy tickets every time I’m at Day Hospice, I never expected to win though. I look forward to coming into the Hospice every week; the care, company and staff – everything is superb!”
Bev Riddell, Day Hospice Sister said: “We are all ecstatic that one of our patients has won the Lottery Superdraw, especially at this time of the year! We hope that George and his wife enjoy the Hamper and treat themselves to something very nice with the money.”
