LADY luck was on the side of Wakefield Hospice when it won £500 thanks to a bookies.
A bet was placed by staff at William Hill on the average Wakefield Wildcats home attendance, on behalf of the charity.
And they have now collected £500 from the turf accountants on Leeds Road, Outwood.
Angie Dickinson, event fundraiser, said: “We are delighted to receive £500 from William Hill – it will go such a long way towards helping the hospice care for its patients this Christmas.
“It is always so heart-warming to receive such support and we can promise that the money will be put to good use, providing everything that a patient could need at the hospice on Christmas Day.”
The hospice has another chance collecting more cash after William Hill manager Ian Miles donated 40 £1 tickets to the Irish Lottery which could result in thousands of pounds.
