I’ve only been playing for a year! Now I’m going to create memories with my win.
As the sun shone we welcomed weekly lottery winner Kate Barlow from Shaw to the hospice where she collected the top prize of £1,000. Amazingly, Kate has only been playing our lottery over the last year, and she chose to play as a way of saying thank you for the care that her father-in-law received at Prospect Hospice.
“Playing the weekly lottery is a great and easy way for me to support Prospect Hospice, little and often,” she says. “I don’t play to win it, I play it because I want to continue to say thank you for all that the team there did for my father-in-law. I was thrilled and surprised though to get the call telling me that I’d won.”
Kate plans to spend her windfall when she meets up with a friend that she’s known for 20 years, who lives more than 200 miles away, for a planned ‘friendversary’. “I want to enjoy it on things that create great memories for my family, my husband and me,” she says.
Congratulations Kate on your good luck and have fun spending it!
