A St Francis Hospice domestic has cleaned up in the charity’s lottery.

Tony Doree, 64, who has been cleaning wards since 2004, took the £1,000 first prize last week.

Trish Knox, domestic team manager at the hospice, said: “Tony’s brilliant! He’s so reliable and everybody loves him. We get lots of nice comments from patients about how clean the hospice is and Tony’s hard work helps us keep it that way.”

First-time winner Tony, who’s been playing the lottery since 2011, said: “I’m not what you would call a serial winner!”

He added: “It’s really good to know that your work is appreciated by patients, families and staff.”
