Lorraine Grant was feeling frustrated last Thursday evening.
“I was working at home,” she said Friday afternoon, “and it was tough to get through.”
Then she got a phone call from someone at the Hospice House Society, and the frustration disappeared.
Grant was told she was the winner of the Society’s latest 50/50 draw,worth $76, 360.
“I bough the ticket quite a while ago, on a phone-in order,” she said after picking up her cheque at the Hospice House on Friday. “I always buy tickets on the draw.”
She says the Hospice House is a local group she has always supported.
“I just fell our community is so fortunate to have the Hospice House here. When we heard the draw was coming up, my husband asked if we should buy another ticket.
“I thought for a few seconds and then said, ‘No. I think one is enough.'”
She hasn’t made any plans for the money yet, but says she will keep one thing in mind.
“I’m going to look after it wisely.”
