Founder member wins jackpot prize AGAIN!

A Hull Man is celebrating his second jackpot win with the Dove House weekly draw, with the family having

won over £5,000 in the last seven years. Norris Hudson of won the £1,000 weekly jackpot on Friday 4th March having also won a £2,000 prize in 1999 with the same game number. His wife Margaret also won £2,000 with her game number in 2001.

Norris who lives in West Hull will also celebrate his 80 th birthday later this year and said he will use his winnings to make the garden nice for the summer so his wife can enjoy it. Mr and Mrs Hudson both joined the Dove House Hospice lottery when it started in 1996 and were in the first ever draw on 31 st May that year. They joined because they wanted to make a regular donation to a worthwhile local charity and help families in their local area. As the lottery celebrates its 20 th birthday in May it seems only fitting that a founder member should be a lucky winner again.

It’s great that long term hospice supporters like Mr Hudson can get something in return for their regular support. His £1 a week has helped make a huge difference over the years to people in our local community and since the lottery started in 1996 our members have raised over £5 million to support families in Hull & East Yorkshire.
