Bondholder Treetops Hospice is celebrating after being selected over national charity lottery providers to win the title of Lottery Operator of the Year.
The award, presented by The Lotteries Council, recognises innovative and successful lottery campaigns that make a large contribution to fund the charity.
The Treetops Lottery has raised over £5 million for the charity since it started selling tickets over twenty years ago.
Mel De Vos, Treetops Lottery Manager, said: “Winning this award was a lovely, unexpected surprise as we were up against some stiff competition.
“As a team we are passionate about raising money for Treetops and feel very proud to have achieved what we have, but we know we could never have done it without the support of the lottery members from our local community. Our fantastic players all help Treetops to deliver free services to the local area - thank you!”
