A 57-year-old has scooped £1,000 prize in a hospice’s weekly lottery – even though she claims she is “not a lucky person”.
Angela Tatham’s brother-in-law was cared for at St Francis Hospice when she decided she wanted to support the hospice and signed up for its lottery.
“I am not really a lucky person, the most I’ve ever won before is £100,” said the Redbridge College caterer, who works in Barley Lane.
“Winning really cheered me up as the day I got the news about my win I had been attending an inquest into my brother’s death.
“It was nice to hear some good news for change. I think I’ll use the money to go on a holiday with my husband as we need a break after the year we’ve had,” added Mrs Tatham.
Regular lottery players, like Mrs Tatham, enable the hospice to offer care to patients and families affected by a life-limiting illness at no cost.
