Two lucky staff members have each bagged themselves £1000 from playing Epsom and St Helier Hospitals Charity Lottery for just £1 a week. See what they had to say about winning!
Emma who works at the Woodlands Nursery at St Helier Hospital said: ‘The funny thing was that I was at the hospital cashiers with my friend, and when I saw the Lottery leaflets there I told her that I played it but that I’d not won anything yet. Then a week later, I got home on a Monday evening, and there was a letter with the cheque inside – it was such a lovely surprise! First of all, I used some of it to treat my family to a really nice meal. And then it came in very handy to fix the car when the exhaust fell off! I’m saving the rest for a rainy day.’
Thomas, a doctor at Epsom Hospital, said: ‘I had signed up online about a year ago at £1 every week. I recently returned from a visit to my parents and bereaved aunt in India to find the cheque in my letter box. I was extremely grateful to God for having won this. The travel home had been very expensive with all the COVID testing, multiple cancellations and rebooking at escalated rates. Though this amount didn’t cover it, it helped ease the burden.’
