Close to heart
A long-time supporter of St Helena Hospice was delighted to win the top prize in Your Hospice Lottery's weekly draw.
When Colchester farmer David Isted received a surprise cheque for £1,000 he telephoned the lottery office to say thank you and to let us know that it meant a great deal to him.
St Helena Hospice has always been a special place for Mr Isted; in his childhood he used to deliver newspapers to Myland Hall when it was still a house. Later on, he was the last tenant to farm on the land surrounding it before the houses in Highwoods were built in the 1980s.
Friends of Mr Isted have been supported by the Hospice over the years and he does all he can to help, including playing our fundraising lottery.
For just £1 a week playing Your Hospice Lottery is an easy way to raise money for hospice care - and you could win too!
