ONE LUCKY ticket-holder is celebrating after pocketing £10,000 in this year's St Richard's Hospice raffle.

The winner was drawn on Friday and while their identity has been kept a secret it has been revealed that the ticket was bought by a Malvern resident from Morrisons supermarket for the second year running.

Hundreds of people have been snapping up the £1 raffle tickets over the last few months, bringing in about £39,000 for hospice funds.

St Richard's fund-raiser Lizzie Brazier said: “Thousands of people bought tickets to help the hospice and to be in with a chance of winning the cash. I’m sure it’s given many of them hours of enjoyment spent just pondering on what they would do with all those pounds!

“In the current economic climate we thought winning cash to spend how you wanted was a fantastic prize and the public have obviously decided it was worth a £1 investment. “

The raffle was run with the support of sponsors Umberto Giannini Hairdressing, Worcester Racecourse, and Startin Honda.
