When Nicola Froude, from Yeovil, signed up to St. Margaret’s Lottery in January last year, she was excited to be in with the chance of the weekly windfall of £10, £500 or even £1,000. Little did she know a Rollover Prize cheque for £3,500 would be winging its way to her!

Nicola couldn’t believe that she had won. She also couldn’t believe the timing as Nicola and her family (including her 4 dogs!) have just moved house, so the money will be used to start turning her new house into her home.

Asked why she had signed up to St. Margaret’s prize draw, Nicola said “I’ve known people who’ve been cared for by St. Margaret’s, both in the hospice and in their own homes. It’s remarkable just how many people benefit from the care. I thought I’d sign up to the St. Margaret’s Lottery rather than a national one as I wanted my money to go to something I know supports my community.”

The money raised from St. Margaret’s prize draw goes directly to making each day count for patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness across Somerset. Rachel Libby, Lottery Manager, said “This is a great example of local people winning. Nicola can enjoy her winnings while knowing she has helped local people receive the best care possible.”
