Self-confessed “lucky person” Jade Hogg has proved she is just that by winning the Saint Francis Hospice lottery.

The 40-year-old signed up as a way of supporting the charity after hearing about the care it provided to a friend’s sister.

She was delighted to become one of the weekly winners, claiming the first prize of £1,000.

“I never expected to win but it has come as wonderful news,” she said.

“I am such a lucky person and I always win prizes at raffles.

The money will come in handy as the mum-of-two from Dagenham has just booked a family trip to Croatia for the summer.

She said: “We’ve all been working so hard and I wanted to book a holiday so we could all have something to look forward to. The money will now help pay off my credit card!”

The lottery raises thousands of pounds each year to help fund doctors and nurses at the hospice, which cares for adults in Barking and Dagenham and the surrounding boroughs.
