Friday 9th December proved to be a very lucky day for five local residents when they bagged some extra cash, just in time for Christmas, in the Nightingale House Cash Draw.
Nightingale House spokesperson, Tracey Price said: “Congratulations to all our prize winners, and a very big thank you to everyone who bought tickets for the Cash Draw.
“Thousands of tickets were sold and the hospice received an additional £35,231 in income. This is a wonderful achievement and means that the hospice can continue to care for local families that need our support.
“Our special raffles, alongside our weekly Hospice Lottery, raise much-needed funds towards providing the high-quality caring services for which Nightingale House is renowned.
“With this in mind, anyone who would like to play the Nightingale House Lottery on a regular basis and be in with a chance to win the £2,500 jackpot each week can find out about joining by getting in touch today. Our lottery membership also makes a brilliant gift for Christmas or birthdays.”
