SOON-to-be retiring solicitor Peter Hill from Little Witley, near Worcester won £3,000 on the Hospices Lottery and then in a generous gesture of support for St Richard’s Hospice, promptly donated £300 back to the charity.

He said: “It’s my first big win ever and the timing is marvellous. I am about to retire and have a holiday in America coming up so this win will give our spending money a boost”

Mr Hill works as a consultant for mfg Solicitors and is retiring after a lifetimes’ career with the firm. He knows St Richard’s Hospice well as mfg Solicitors are supporters of the charity, as is his son Matthew, who has completed a number of charity cycle rides.

Mr Hill joined the Hospice Lottery – a joint venture between St Richard’s Hospice and Acorns Children’s Hospice - in 2009 and was the lucky winner of the lottery rollover.
