A special £15,000 delivery for one lucky winner

Santa was not the only one delivering Christmas gifts and cheer as one lucky NHS worker has won a massive £15,000 today.

As part of Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust’s annual staff Super Draw lottery, Elaine Chafor had an extra reason to smile.

Elaine, who works as a receptionist at Scunthorpe hospital’s outpatients department, said: “I was absolutely stunned. I’ve never won anything before in my life. This is absolutely brilliant.”

The Trust also runs a monthly staff SuperDraw lottery scheme, with a grand prize currently standing at £3,000, second prize £1,000 and third prize of £500.

Simon Dunn, head of organisational development, said: “This is just one incentive for all staff across the Trust who work hard throughout the year.

“We began the monthly draws in February 2013 and it costs staff £5 a month to be in the draw. I want to congratulate all our winners throughout this year especially Elaine and we hope to give a nice surprise to many more staff next year.”
