Patricia’s hospice lotto win

A LONG Ashton mum was presented with a cheque for �5,000 after winning a charity lotto.

Patricia Preston won the top prize in the St Peter’s Hospice annual SuperDraw after buying several of the �1 tickets for her and her family.

The 72-year-old will now be able to help her daughter after she was recently made redundant.

Patricia, a mother-of-three, has also gone though a challenging and distressing few years after losing her husband to cancer 18 months ago.

She said: “I’m completely shocked to have won the prize. I only take part to be able to support St Peter’s Hospice and now they are supporting me – it is absolutely fantastic.
