A delighted Mr Pat Smith receives a cheque for £10,000 from Zoe Guest who is Funding and Operations Manager for St Mary’s Hospice; which provides specialist supportive and palliative care for people throughout South Cumbria.
The prize was the winning number for the rollover in the weekly lottery, administered by Sterling and which provides vital funding for the hospice.
”St Mary’s relies on the local community for 80% of its annual running costs of £2.4 million. 17% of the funding comes from people playing our weekly lottery and we cannot thank all our playing members enough for all their support. It was a pleasure to hand over the £10,000 to Mr Smith who is a great supporter of St Mary’s. We hope that he enjoys his prize.
The rollover prize we introduced 2 years ago has provided a great incentive for people to join in the weekly draw” Zoe Guest, St Marys Hospice.
