Lottery winners, Wendy Brown and Raymond Storey, took on the role of Santa for the day and delivered sack loads of presents to the children and their families who will be spending this Christmas in Robin House, one of the hospices run by CHAS.
Wendy, who scooped £2.9 million in 2009 as part of the Smile syndicate with her colleagues, and Raymond who won £1 million in 2014, helped to deliver Christmas presents and festive cheer to the children, their families and the hard-working staff at the charity’s hospice in Balloch.
Commenting on her visit to Robin House, Wendy said: “The work the hospice staff do is so inspiring and the care they provide to the children and their families is incredible.
“Seeing the children’s faces light up as we brought them gifts for Christmas really hit home how much we need to support charities such as CHAS and do all we can to help them.”
Gill Levy, Relationship Manager, said: “We’re so grateful to The National Lottery and its winners for taking time out to help us spread some festive cheer in Robin House ready for Christmas.
“It’s such a special time of year for families staying with us and wonderful to see people giving up their time to help us give out gifts and goodies to the children.
The National Lottery changes the lives of communities across the UK – players raise, on average, over £34m for National Lottery-funded projects every week.
