£5,200 won by Buckfastleigh couple in CHSW Lottery


A Buckfastleigh couple are celebrating after winning more than £5,000 in the Children’s Hospice South West Lottery.

Norman and Jacqui Elliott started playing the charity’s weekly Lottery more than ten years ago, although Jacqui says they never expected to win anything: “I didn’t realise it was a Lottery at first, I thought of it as just making a regular donation. In fact, when I took the phone call, I thought the charity were calling to ask us for more money, not to tell Norman he’d won something!”

Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) will be arresting, charging and putting on trial some well-known business people in the area who, if found guilty of their entirely fictitious crimes, will have to raise a bail of £999 each to be set free. Funds raised on the day will help support the work of its Little Bridge House children’s hospice in Barnstaple.

The concept of ‘whole family care’ is a key part of the service at Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW). Siblings, in particular, often share a special bond and the loss of a brother or sister will have a lifelong impact.

CHSW operates a Sibling Service at each hospice, providing dedicated support and care to the brothers and sisters of children who have life-limiting conditions. The service was established in recognition of their needs and provides much valued and dedicated care.
