Meet some of our recent Lottery winners!

Kirkwood’s Lottery gives you the chance to win £1,000 in cash prizes every week, including a jackpot prize of £750. The money the Kirkwood Lottery raises helps to fund care and support to anyone affected with life limiting illnesses across Kirklees. Here are some of our recent winners!

David Ellison

David Ellison scooped up the Kirkwood Lottery Jackpot prize of £750 earlier this March.

After being an active member for 3 years, David was delighted to win the Kirkwood Lottery jackpot prize of £750 earlier this month.

David signed up to the Kirkwood Lottery in April 2016 and has supported monthly ever since through direct debit.

Originally from Cornwall, David and his wife moved to Holmfirth five years ago to re-invent themselves in the Yorkshire countryside.

David is a keen tennis player and since moving to Holmfirth, he has thrown himself into the sport by becoming a member at a local tennis club.


David became a member of the lottery as a way to give back to charity and as a close friend of David’s recently died of bowel cancer, it is more important to him than ever.

He said: “Everyone knows someone affected by cancer; I play because it’s a local cause. Hospices do such fantastic things.”

This is David’s first time winning the Kirkwood Lottery and as he usually never wins anything, both David and his wife are looking forward to spending the money on some good quality time together.

Anita Murgatroyd

Anita Murgatroyd won the Kirkwood Lottery Jackpot prize of £750 back in December.

Anita Murgatroyd, of Ainley Top, was surprised to find out one afternoon she’d won Kirkwood Lottery’s Jackpot prize of £750.

Anita has been playing the Kirkwood Lottery since February 2018 and is feeling the benefit of being a member.


Anita said: “I’m taking my grandson, Liam, to Spain in April, I’ve already got it booked. I couldn’t quite believe it at first.

“I was opening the post and saw the letter from Kirkwood Lottery; I didn’t believe the cheque at first!”

If you would like to become a member of the Lottery, and support Kirkwood all year round, sign up today here.
