St Francis Hospice, Havering-atte-Bower: lottery’s first anniversary sees two winning tickets and three lucky winners

Havering-atte-Bower’s St Francis Hospice celebrated the anniversary of its lottery scheme by handing out two first prizes of �1,000 last Friday (October 19).

One of the winning tickets belonged to 33-year-old Scott Lloyd, who runs a training company, and 30-year-old paediatric palliative care nurse Ellie Sale, of Dagenham.

“My mum died from cancer and Ellie’s nan died in a hospice,” said Scott, “so when we saw one of the St Francis Hospice ambassadors visiting our road and encouraging people to join the hospice lottery we signed up.”

The second �1,000 winner was 53-year-old Stuart Davis, who works in Harold Wood in the motor trade.

Stuart has been playing the lottery since it began.
