Local woman, Ros Davies, had the shock of her life when she received a phone call whilst volunteering at Willowbrook Hospice’s Page Moss Charity Shop to say she had won the hospice’s Lottery rollover prize of £6600!
Long term Willowbrook volunteer, Ros, 73, from Whiston, initially thought it was a prank call from one of her colleagues.
Ros says: “I’ve been in the Willowbrook Lottery from day one and have only ever won the odd £5 or £10 so when I got the phone call to say I’d won £6600, I naturally thought it was a wind up! As soon as I realised it was real, I was elated and couldn’t believe it! I immediately rang my family to tell them the good news and they were as shocked as I was!
“I’ll definitely make sure that I treat my family but I haven’t yet decided what I’ll do with the rest of the money.”
Ros was involved in supporting the initial set up the hospice and has volunteered for almost 30 years in a variety of roles including supporting fundraising events and working in the Willowbrook charity shops.
Ros continues “Willowbrook is in my blood and I’m passionate about the care the hospice provides to local people and their families. It’s an amazing place!”
Bev Neilson from the Willowbrook Lottery was the one to give Ros the good news. Bev says “I was over the moon to tell Ros that she had won our rollover! She really deserves it. They say what goes around comes around and in Ros’ case it most certainly has.”
