When a syndicate of women working at the Calderdale Royal Hospital, Halifax go for lottery tickets, what do you think they will pick? The Health Lottery of course. The women play the Health Lottery in part because it benefits health charities not funded by the NHS. It turns out that playing the lottery is also good for their health – their financial health in particular.
The group recently posted a £100000 win, which members thought was a joke at first. The syndicate leader kept the win a secret for a month just in case she made a mistake checking the numbers. Now they have the check in hand and are whooping for joy.
But they are not about to stop playing the Health Lottery.
