"I'm still on cloud nine," said Iris from Romford.      

"When my daughter told me the good news I kept asking if it was true.     

"It is more money than I've ever had and I didn't really believe it until I had the cheque in my hands."     

We're absolutely thrilled for Iris who has been playing our lottery since it began in 2011. 

"I have been planning a dinner with my family to celebrate my birthday and now it will be a lot easier," said Iris.      

The lottery helps the Hospice raise almost £500,000 a year to fund its specialist end of life care services.
