Lottery winners club together

Lottery winners club together

National Lottery millionaires from across the South of England clubbed together to give an early Christmas present to the Little Bridge House hospice in Barnstaple. They created a giant gingerbread-inspired playhouse filled with toys for the charity and their families to enjoy.

With a combined wealth of more than £23 million, the lucky lottery winners turned the simple wood cabin for the hospice to use as a permanent outdoor playhouse the whole year round.

Children’s Hospice South West – three hospices including Little Bridge House – provides hospice care for children with life-limiting conditions, and support for their whole family. The care is wide-ranging respite and short breaks, emergency care, palliative care, and end of life care.

The lottery winners worked over a 24-hour period armed with 75 paint brushes, 20 rollers, more than 100 litres of paint and countless decorations and twinkly lights, creating a fantastic festive funhouse that delighted the team at Little Bridge House.

More than 60 National Lottery winners have been involved in donating their time and gifts to the charities.
