Panto stars pull out winning ticket in Cornwall Hospice Care’s Christmas Bumper Draw Stars of the 2014 Hall for Cornwall pantomime Robin Hood donned their costumes to visit the Cornwall Hospice Care shop in Truro yesterday (Wednesday 17 December). Robin Hood (Steffan Lloyd-Evans) and Maid Marian (Abona Omonua) visited the store to pull out the winning tickets in the charity’s annual Christmas Draw. First prize in the draw was £2,000, which was won by a Cornwall Hospice Care supporter who wishes to remain anonymous. The second ticket drawn out by the Panto stars secured a £500 prize for Terry and Brenda Moreland from Helston and the third place cheque for £250 was won by Doris Trethewey from Truro. In drawing the 13 prizes (10 people won £25), Steffan Lloyd-Evans who plays Robin Hood, said; “I’m delighted to be drawing the winning tickets with Abona, my Maid Marian, as I have personal experience of such a charity and know the great work they do and how important it is to families. Congratulations to all the winners and to Cornwall Hospice Care for such a successful draw,” The 2014 Christmas Bumper Draw has raised a magnificent £35,367, which as Cornwall Hospice Care Lottery Manager Sarah Vincent explains, is vital to the charity; “We have to raise £7.5 million of the £8.4 million needed to run our two hospices annually, so a sum like this is extremely valuable. It means we can continue to provide our specialist care to patients and their families in Cornwall free of charge. I’d like to send a huge thank you to everyone who purchased tickets for the draw to show their support, we really do appreciate the generosity. So Happy Christmas to everyone and I wish a peaceful New Year to one and all.” Cornwall Hospice Care run a weekly lottery and details on how to play can be found by visiting the charity’s website at www.cornwallhospicecare.co.uk Robin Hood is on at the Hall for Cornwall in Truro until 4 January 2015.
