Easter weekend joy for Phil
Phil from Western Park has played the LOROS Lottery since June 2012 and when he found out about his win on Good Friday he told us it was "totally out of the blue"!
Phil signed up to the LOROS Lottery in a supermarket when he began talking to a LOROS Lottery promoter who works out in the community to spread the word about the Hospice and allow people to support by joining the Lottery.
"It didn't take a great deal of thought - it was always a no brainer.
"It is important to us that it is a local charity that is benefiting the local community."
Describing the news on the win Phil says "It's an incredibly exciting piece of news to receive - a really welcome piece of news.
"We will definitely spend it on something family orientated and some might go towards our children's annual school skiiing trip.
"I would urge people to follow in my footsteps and sign up to the LOROS Lottery - to help a local charity that helps people when they need it most".
Phil wanted to share his story to encourage others to support LOROS.
