Family Holiday for Hospice Lottery Winner

Barbara Midgley, had been a member of Dr Kershaw’s Weekly Lottery for over ten years, when she won the jackpot prize of £1,000. After Covid restrictions on travel and seeing family, Barbara was thrilled to use her winnings to treat her family to a holiday in Whitby, the first time they’d been away together in some time.

Barbara explained: “I joined Dr Kershaw’s Lottery after my friend was cared for at the Hospice. I now have two lines a week, each line only costs £1 a week, but I feel like I’m contributing to a good service, which we all might need to access at some point. I’d encourage anyone thinking of signing up to definitely do it, I couldn’t believe I won the £1,000 prize, which paid for a lovely family holiday, it was so nice to all be together. Dr Kershaw’s is such a relaxed and peaceful place, I wanted my dad to be cared for there but he was too poorly to move him, hopefully my small contribution will help others at the Hospice.”

If you would like to support Dr Kershaw’s by joining our weekly lottery, for just £1 a week, for a chance to win the weekly £1,000 jackpot, visit or call our Lottery Team on 0161 624 9213.
