EUROMILLIONS win­ner Emma Dunkley from Formby has help­ing to cre­ate a new out­door relaxation area for a lo­cal baby hospice.

Emma, who scooped £6.5m in Novem­ber 2009, spent the day at Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice in West Derby, un­veil­ing a new bench and plant­ing au­tumn flow­ers.

Zoe’s Place is very close to Emma’s heart and she has also made numer­ous per­sonal do­na­tions since her win.

Emma said: “Zoe’s Place is a truly re­mark­able char­ity that does ex­tra­or­di­nary things for young chil­dren and their fam­i­lies. Every time I visit, I am so over­whelmed by the work that they do.

‘‘As a mother my­self, noth­ing gives me greater joy than see­ing chil­dren with a smile on their faces. I hope this new out­door area will pro­vide many happy mo­ments both for the chil­dren and their fam­i­lies.”

Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice looks after chil­dren from birth to the age of five who have life-lim­it­ing or lifethreat­en­ing con­di­tions, pro­vid­ing them with pal­lia­tive, respite and end-of-life care.
