Meet our Summer Raffle 2017 Winner – Margaret!

Margaret collecting her cheque from the hospice in September 2017.

Back in September we were delighted to invite Margaret Parsons, our Summer Raffle jackpot winner, to the hospice. Margaret won our £3,000 jackpot this summer, which was kindly donated by Imagine Cruising.

Margaret has lived in Swindon since she was four years old, so has seen many changes within the town. She is a long-time supporter of the hospice, following the care her husband Leslie received on our In-Patient Unit in 2009, something she will never forget. Margaret attended our bereavement support group for four years – making new friends along the way. “I still meet up with a friend I met through the group,” she laughs.

It was a real pleasure meeting Margaret and hand her the £3,000 jackpot cheque. From everyone at Prospect Hospice, we’d like to congratulate Margaret and thank everyone who took part, and thank Imagine Cruising in particular, who donated the winnings and made our Summer Raffle such a success. Because of supporters like you, our two raffles raise over £70,000 towards the care and support we provide for thousands of people each and every year.
