At Saint Catherine’s we are doing everything we can to keep our patients, families, staff , volunteers and supporters safe at this difficult time.
Our key clinical services are still running, which means that patients are still being cared for in the hospice and at home.
However, in line with Government guidance and with safety paramount, we have taken the decision to reduce some face-to-face services and restrict visitors on site. Also, our hospice shops will be closed for the time being and we have postponed all of our fundraising events that were planned during the next few months.
Every decision being made is in the best interests of our patients, families, volunteers and staff.
We need your continued support and help more than ever as we continue to pay and support all our members of staff – we appreciate every donation, every message and every offer of support.

Steve left ‘astounded’ by £11,500 hospice lottery win

June 22nd 2020

A retired Scarborough hotelier said he was ‘astounded’ to win an £11,500 rollover on the Saint Catherine’s lottery.

Steve Flint, 74, has been playing the lottery since it started in 1998 – and this is his second memorable win.

He explained: “I had a big win a few years ago of £2,000 and spent it all on Premium Bonds for my kids and grandkids, who then went on to have some smaller wins themselves – so the luck was passed on!”

On winning the rollover, he said: “I was astounded really. It took a while to sink in. I think I am quite a lucky person – if I go to a tombola I always come away with a few prizes!”

Steve (pictured with his wife Jackie) said he had thought about doing the National Lottery, but decided that the better one to play was the hospice lottery, as it brings such a benefit to the local community.

He added: “The work that Saint Catherine’s does is unbelievable. We are so lucky to have a facility like that on our doorstep.”

In fact, Steve is so supportive of the work of Saint Catherine’s that he has very kindly decided to donate 20% of his winnings back to the hospice, to be put towards caring for patients and their loved ones. He is planning to share the rest of the winnings with his family.

Susan Stephenson, communications and marketing manager at Saint Catherine’s, said: “We are thrilled for Steve and his family – it was lovely to deliver such exciting news to one of our supporters. On behalf of everyone at Saint Catherine’s, I would like to say a huge thank you to Steve for his kindness in donating back part of his prize. We also thank him for his continued support in playing the lottery, which helps to fund patient care.”
