A recent £1,000 winner Rob, shares how his lottery win means so much more to him and his family.
What a lovely surprise to hear about my win! I've been a supporter of the hospice since 1994, when my brother-in-law and I walked the coast path from Plymouth to Fremington via Land's End to raise money for the building of Little Bridge House.
From that challenge back in 1994, Rob says that their flag and map case are in the time box buried under the chapel at Little Bridge House, and to win the lottery now feels as if his fundraising efforts and support have come full-circle!
What makes his win even more special is his granddaughter, Grace. Rob says:
I now have a disabled granddaughter, Grace, and she has had a few visits to Little Harbour both with her parent, and on her own to give them some well-earned respite.
Rob explains that Grace loves being at Little Harbour, having non-stop attention and despite her condition, he says that, "she is probably the happiest and the most content person I know, with a big beaming smile never far from her face."
Much to our surprise, Rob kindly donated some of his winnings back to CHSW so we can continue providing care and support, knowing it will help families like his. Not only that, but he and his daughter also took on the Coast to Coast challenge last summer to raise even more funds to support families!
Thank you, Rob, for your unwavering support and to all of our lottery players and winners for raising smiles.
