Win Was “A Penny From Heaven”

Please join us in congratulating Rebecca Battle who has won this week’s Weekly £2,000 Draw with ticket number 23476.

Today’s Weekly £2000 Draw winner is Rebecca Battle who works at Fairfield Hospital on a Mental Health ward. 

Rebecca has been working at Fairfield Hospital for 19 years. She is currently a Domestic but is due to start a new role soon as an Activities Co-ordinator, delivering therapeutic activities with inpatients.

Whilst usually we would be really excited to share the stories of us surprising our winners, this week is unfortunately a little different. for Rebecca.

Rebecca, along with her sisters, Anna and Joanne, have spent the last 4 days in hospital at the bedside of their Dad, Thomas Battle. Thomas has had Dementia for the last 5 years, and has been well looked after by Burrswood Residential and Nursing Care Home in Bury. However, Thomas has been very poorly and unfortunately, Rebecca’s Dad passed away just before 9am this morning. 

When we called Rebecca to tell her the news that she had won, she was understandably emotional. She said that it’s her Dad that made her win happen, sending “a penny from heaven”.

Knowing we usually visit our winners and take a celebratory photograph with their cheque, we completely understood if Rebecca and her family didn’t want visitors today, however, Rebecca was happy for us to pay her and her sister, Anna, a visit for this special gift from her Dad.

Rebecca will be using the money towards giving her beloved Dad the most beautiful send off and said that she would like to thank all the staff at Burrswood for taking care of her Dad.

We send our condolences to Rebecca, Anna, Joanne and all the family at this sad time. We’re glad that this lucky ticket had a pinch of love from heaven, just when it was needed the most.
