A lucky local St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice supporter is celebrating to the tune of £10,000 after scooping the grand prize in the hospice’s annual summer Superdraw, which raised over £40,000 for St Luke’s.
Mrs Grace Tran, from Crewe, picked up her grand cash prize at the Winsford hospice on Friday, October 5, from St Luke’s promotions manager Claire Langston and Chris Winward of local Ford car dealership Cliff Dickenson & Son, sponsor of the competition.
For the price of just a £1 raffle ticket, draw entrants were put into the hat for the chance to win either a brand new ‘62’ plate Fiesta Zetec, supplied by Cliff Dickenson & Son, or £10,000 in cash.
Mrs Tran, a long-time supporter of the hospice, was delighted to be the lucky local winner.
St Luke’s Claire Langston said: “A huge congratulations to Mrs Tran on her fantastic win. The hospice looks after so many people in the community so we’re delighted to be able to offer such a prize to a lucky local winner.
“Thank you to all the people who bought a ticket and special mention goes to Cliff Dickenson & Son of Winsford, our local Ford dealership, www.cliffdickenson.co.uk. Their on-going support for us with the car prize and also the additional use of a promotional vehicle to spread the word at community events is invaluable.”
Cliff Dickenson & Son managing director Mr Winward said the company was proud to help the hospice, a cause they have regularly supported since 2004.
He said: “Our company has been based in the town since 1927 and many of our customers work at or have been patients at the hospice so it is incredibly important to everyone in the local area.”
