Keith, from Worthing, won the £1,000 first prize from the St Barnabas Lottery, and his perseverance made his success all the sweeter.
“I’ve been playing this Lottery for 15 years,” he said. “I’ve won the odd £10 but nothing like this. In fact, I’ve never won this much in my life, and I’m in my seventies now.
“I find this is a good and easy way to contribute on a regular basis, and there’s also the possibility of winning a prize. I also understand that contributions like these make such a difference to running a charity.
“I’ve had no personal experience of the hospice. But I do think it’s a wonderful thing. It’s a horrible time for a lot of people.
“I might spend the money on a holiday. But I also want to give a bit to my family and let them get on with it. It will be a nice surprise for them.”
St Barnabas House uses the money raised by Lottery players to provide the very best care to local people and their families.
