“Hospices fill a gap that absolutely nothing else fills”: Why £250 winner Jean plays our Lottery

Congratulations to Jean Dixon from Wareham, who has won £250 on our Lottery!

The weekly draw, operated by Your Hospice Lottery in aid of Weldmar Hospicecare, saw Jean’s number pulled out of the hat for the runners’ up prize last week.

Jean says, “I was totally surprised!  I’m happy to contribute to Weldmar every week, but I never expect to win, so it was very nice to find out I’d won £250.”

“I support Weldmar because I think hospices are an essential part of the care that we have.  They fill a gap that absolutely nothing else fills. The people who need them get the very best care they can possibly get, and from my experience it makes a huge difference to friends and family.”

“It’s so easy to do.  I set up my Direct Debit and then forgot about it really, and all of a sudden I’ve found out I’ve won £250, which is lovely!”

Jean has very kindly given back £100 to Weldmar, and the rest will be spent on a gift for each member of her family … and a pair of earrings for herself.
