David and Jenny Burton

Fruitful win for David and Jenny

David and Jenny Burton have been playing the LOROS Lottery together since the very first draw on October 11th 1996. David speaks fondly about signing up all those years ago, “We wanted to support because it’s our local Hospice and you can see where the money is going.”

Jenny, who has volunteered for LOROS for 17 years, pays annually into the Lottery but in the past has paid monthly too. Jenny told us “The Hospice is such a worthwhile cause, everyone you speak to has been touched in some way by LOROS.”

David received the call on the Friday morning after the weekly draw and was totally surprised to hear the good news. He waited for Jenny to return home from volunteering at the Hospice that afternoon to let her know the good news.

They’re both looking forward to spending the money on their garden, in particular on a fruit cage.

David and Jenny wanted to share their story to encourage more people to play the LOROS Lottery and said “LOROS is extremely good and valuable to the local area, it deserves all the support it can get”.
