Comedian Dom Joly is getting serious for a good cause.
The Cotswold-based star has done something he has never done before recorded a video with a serious message. Its all in aid of Cotswold Care Hospice and its new weekly lottery called Grand in your Hand.
The creator of Trigger Happy TV, devoted Twitterer and national newspaper columnist is calling on people to sign up to the lottery.
Im not used to recording serious things, said Dom. But it for such a good cause I am willing to give it a go.
The video was recorded in Doms garden with a little support from his two faithful Labradors, though they remain strictly low-key and off camera.
Every week Grand in your Hand will give away a top prize of 1,000. All proceeds will be used by the charity to fund vital services for people with life-limiting illnesses.
Cotswold Care Hospice does a lot of good work with people who have terminal illnesses. It doesnt really get much money from the Government, said Dom. So they have launched Grand in your Hand as a way to raise money to them going and to make the place better.
I would very much recommend that you sign up to the lottery. I dont know why you should listen to me but it seems like a good idea. So, why dont you do that now please? Make a difference and win a grand cant say fairer than that.
Peter Rowbottom, head of fundraising, said: We are so thrilled that Dom is supporting us.I must say that Dom managed to stay very serious, well almost to the end!
