Steve Sudbury plays the lottery in support of St Helena Hospice and in March 2017 he won the £1,000 weekly top prize!

He kindly wrote in to the lottery team to say thank you for his winnings. “It came at just the right time and very unexpected! You are doing amazing work.”

Steve suffered a heart attack in 2004 and had 3 stents to sort it out. Since then he has trekked The Great Wall of China in 2007 and the Lares Trail in the Andes in Peru in 2009, both of these were to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society, his Mother in Law had Alzheimer’s.

Proving that a heart attack does not stop you from doing anything, Steve continue to work as a self-employed gardener, something he has done for 40 years.

Being involved with scouting he also runs trips abroad for Explorer Scouts, the last one being to Newfoundland in 2014.

Steve recalls: “In November 2012 I had a giant malignant melanoma (19mm) on my back, skin cancer, I understand this is very big! I now have a hole the size of a burger on my left shoulder blade. This experience together with the heart attack made me realise that life is precious and can be cut short at any time, and brings it home what the local hospices do to help people at the end of their time.

I believe life goes on, you are a long time dead, life is for living. I started supporting the Hospice lottery after these two scares, you never know when you may need them.”
