MRS Greta Walter's £1,000 win on the Children's Hospice South West Lottery is not her only link with Little Bridge House in Fremington.

Her grandson Sam, aged six, has been accepted to receive respite care there shortly.

Her daughter Jo Boyd, who is Sam's mother, said: "It was such a surprise to hear that Sam had been accepted at Little Bridge House and then grandma won the lottery within a matter of days.!

"My son Sam has developmental delay and epilepsy. Our first stay at the hospice will be next month and we are really looking forward to it.

"We have heard such wonderful things about Little Bridge House.

"I have spoken to our contact on the care team and they have explained all the lovely things that there are for Sam to enjoy."

Mrs Walter, from Bideford, has been a supporter of Children's Hospice South West for many years.

The hospice has many facilities for its young guests, including a multi-sensory room and a messy-play room.
