A 23 year old bride-to-be from Middlewich has won our weekly Lottery jackpot of £1,000 after taking on her Mum’s lottery numbers.

Rhiannon Harris’s mum Jackie died two years ago at the age of 61 after a short battle with lung cancer. Jackie had played St Luke’s Lottery since the very first draw in 1994, so Rhiannon decided to continue playing the Lottery using her mum’s numbers in her memory.

Rhiannon said: “I firmly believe it is a sign from my mum, given that I am getting married next year and my sister Nickie is due her first baby this month! The money we have won will allow me to treat my sister and newborn nephew to something special, and the remainder will be going straight into my wedding fund!

“My mum will never get to see her youngest daughter move into her first home, or attend her wedding, and she will never meet her first grandchild. Things that she waited her whole life to see, and only missed out on by less than two years’ of precious time.

“I will continue to support St Luke’s Hospice, and the amazing work that they do to help people like my mum. And I feel very, very lucky to have won such an amazing prize which I never expected to win. Thank you St Luke’s! And thank you Mum.”

St Luke’s Lottery pays for the care of one in every five patients at the Hospice. The money it raises is even more important at this difficult time.

The Lottery costs just £1 a week to enter and gives players the chance to win a weekly jackpot of £1,000 and a rollover jackpot of up to £5,000. For more information visit St Luke’s website www.slhospice.co.uk/lottery, email lottery@slhospice.co.uk or call 01606 553553.
