Lucky Catherine Armes was lost for words when she won £2,750 on Hartlepool & District Hospice’s lottery rollover prize.

Mrs Armes has been a member of the lottery scheme since it started 20 years ago and is a staunch supporter of the hospice.

She said: “I have never been known as someone ever lost for words, but I was when I received the phone call to tell me I had won £2,750 on the Hospice Lottery.”

Hospice lottery manager Veronica Nelson added: “The Hospice Lottery is very important to the charity, providing sustainable funding of over £324,000 in 2013/14, to be able to thank our players is one of the best parts of my job.”
