A nurse has won £1,000 in the Southampton Hospital Charity Lottery first birthday celebrations.
Allison Armstrong, a senior sister at Southampton General Hospital, won the money after being a Southampton Hospital Charity Lottery player since the scheme was launched in October 2008.
Ms Armstrong said, “I have never won anything before, and I’m so pleased to have won the bumper Lottery jackpot, which I will be spending on a new kitchen. I have been telling all the patients and staff, and everyone that I’ve seen, about my win, and will be encouraging them all to sign up to the Southampton Hospital Charity Lottery for their chance to win!”
Southampton Hospital Charity launched the weekly Lottery Scheme with the aim of helping to raise funds for the benefit of patients at Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust. The goal is to give away a jackpot of £1,000 every week, but this will only be possible when at least 2,500 players have joined the scheme. Until then, the prize pot is made up of 50% of the weekly proceeds.
