Jane's winner story

Jane Webling, a Salisbury Hospice Charity supporter won £1000 in the draw. This is what she had to say when we spoke to her about her win.

As a top prize winner how did you feel when you received the cheque unexpectedly?
"First I was shocked, then elated.  My daughter was here when I opened the cheque – I shouted ‘We’ve won the lottery!’"

What are you going to do with the winnings?"
"I’m going to put the money into an account to go towards a holiday for me and my daughter. We’ll go somewhere where the sun is shining."

As a long term player of the lottery what inspires you to keep playing?
"I keep playing as I know it helps the hospice. Sometimes when things are a bit tight I think about what I could cut back on but as it’s for the hospice, I kept going"

How did you first hear about our fundraising lottery?
"A gentleman came to the door. He was lovely, so polite.  As it was so cold I invited him in to warm up.  He explained everything beautifully and I was happy to sign up."

Do you have any connections with Salisbury Hospice?
"Yes.  My mother, Rose Giles, was in the hospice in December 2011.  It was amazing.  The nurses explained exactly what was going to happen, the stages she would go through.  It really helped me, I was able to ask questions and recognise what was going on.  They explained what would happen at the actual death which for me was part of the counselling service."

Why did you decide to join our lottery?
"Really to give back something as they had given us so much.

What would you say to anyone thinking of joining the lottery in support of Salisbury Hospice?
"JUST DO IT!  You might win and even if you don’t you will be supporting a worthwhile local charity.  I’ll be persuading my sisters to sign up."
