Press release: Jersey’s newest millionaire is made tonight through the Jersey Hospice Care Million Pound Lottery

The winning numbers from this year’s Jersey Hospice Care Million Pound Lottery were announced this evening at an event at the Royal Yacht. Four members of the community who have been outstanding in their support for Hospice this year drew the winning numbers live on ITV Channel News. Ten prizes were won during the course of the event with Islanders watching the event via the ITV Channel News livestream on Facebook.

Ahead of the live draw, viewers saw a short video in which Clinical Assistant, Jeannine Vallois, talked about her passion for her work at Hospice and how her own personal experiences have been impacting how she supports patients and their families.

ITV journalist, Emma Baker, also interviewed Hospice’s Chair of Trustees, Julie Coward who said: “This year more than ever we are extremely grateful to Islanders for their continued support during these challenging times. We were delighted that all 7000 tickets were sold out by August, raising vital funds for Hospice while also giving something back to our community of supporters. We have an amazing team at Hospice who have continued to work throughout the pandemic and the £800,000 raised tonight will help us continue to provide care to everyone who needs us.”

The Ball Drawers were selected from a number of individuals who had been incredibly supportive of Hospice this year. They were:
• Alan Morris who has been fundraising for Hospice for years in memory of his son, Jay, through the Jay Morris Spinathon
• Harvey Mitchell who, through his company Mitchell Building Contractors, has sponsored key Hospice events this year
• Tessa Hartmann who provided pro bono support through her design agency particularly to promote the Million Pound Lottery
