I have never won anything before so you can imagine my surprise when l opened the envelope and found that l had won the first prize of £3000 in the Queenscourt Pearl Anniversary Raffle!
I’ve supported Queenscourt for a number of years now, including by being a member of Queenscourt’s Lottery and also through buying their raffle tickets.
l work at Southport Hospital in the Blood Transfusion Laboratory. We often get blood samples in from patients at Queenscourt that need a transfusion. I have also had to visit friends and colleagues in the Hospice. It amazes me how on entering you completely forget where you are.
All of the staff are so friendly and welcoming and I even used to take my dog in on a Saturday morning, when l visited the hospice pre-pandemic.
Queenscourt’s charity shops are kept immaculately clean and at Christmas they have a range of cards depicting local scenes of Southport, Formby and West Lancashire, and I have bought the ones of Southport for the last few years.
You have to remember that the Hospice is run as a charity so funds are greatly needed. I would certainly tell people that it is a great charity to support for the benefit of local people, and that’s why I chose to donate part of my winnings back to Queenscourt.
You can support your local hospice by joining Queenscourt Lottery (www.queenscourt.org.uk/lottery) or by making a donation at www.queenscourt.org.uk/donate
