Local hospice supporter wins £25,000 on hospice lottery

Ashgate Hospicecare is thrilled to announce that one of their regular lottery players has won an amazing £25,000 on the Ashgate Lottery rollover.

Richard Dawes, from Chesterfield in North Derbyshire, recently won the staggering amount after supporting his Ashgate Hospicecare and playing the lottery for four years. The amount is the biggest prize the hospice has given out and Mr Dawes couldn’t believe his luck when he found out.

Mr Dawes said, “I’m absolutely delighted to have won – I can’t quite believe it! We’ve always wanted to visit New York, and now, with the money we’ve won, we’ll be able to enjoy an amazing family holiday.

I’m really proud to support Ashgate Hospicecare as my family and I know how important their services are to the local people. I’ll certainly be telling my friends to sign up!”

Jack Wood, Individual Giving Manager at Ashgate Hospicecare said, “Last year in July, we changed our prize structure which meant that our players were seven times more likely to win a prize on the Ashgate Lottery. We increased the top rollover prize to £25,000 and added £850 worth of additional prizes every week.

The number of people playing the lottery has grown by 50% over the past four years and continues to be a vital support to the services Ashgate Hospicecare provides, ensuring that they continue to keep delivering specialist care and support to patients with a life-limiting illness and their families across North Derbyshire.”

The Ashgate Lottery is just £1 a week to play, and a prize of £1,000 is given out every week as well as players being in with the chance to win the top rollover prize of £25,000.
