Liverpool Lottery Winner Lends Helping Hand at Baby Hospice

EUROMILLIONS winner, Emma Dunkley from Formby, is helping to create a new outdoor relaxation area for a local Baby Hospice.  Emma, who scooped ₤6.5M in November 2009, spent the day at Zoe's Place Baby Hospice in West Derby, unveiling a new bench and planting autumn flowers.

Zoe's Place is very close to Emma's heart.  In 2016 she joined other National Lottery winners and helped to build a giant Gingerbread playhouse for the children. She has also made numerous personal donations since her win.  Emma said:- "Zoe's Place is a truly remarkable charity that does extraordinary things for young children and their families. Every time I visit, I am so overwhelmed by the work that they do. As a mother myself, nothing gives me greater joy than seeing children with a smile on their faces. I hope this new outdoor area will provide many happy moments both for the children and their families."

Zoe's Place Baby Hospice looks after children from birth to the age of 5 who have life limiting or life threatening conditions, providing them with palliative, respite and end of life care.  Zoe's Place has received over ₤195,000 from the Big Lottery Fund to pay for 3 additional Nurses; all thanks to National Lottery players.

Carol Kirkham, Fundraising Manger at Zoe's Place said:- "As a charity, we rely solely on the generosity of others. We are so grateful to have had the support of Emma and The National Lottery over the last year in helping transform our outdoor space.  We have many young children and families that use this area daily. It has become a great spot for them to spend quality together."

Zoe's Place is just one of thousands of projects in the North West to benefit from National Lottery funding.  For more information on National Lottery funding please visit:- LotteryGoodCauses.Org.UK.
