A GENEROUS celebrity chef provided the recipe for success at a hospice's fundraising superdraw last week.

Award-winning French chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, who has a cookery school in Tea Green, Herts, donated £1,000 to The Hospice of St Francis in Berkhamsted at the sixth annual lottery superdraw last Wednesday.

A total of £9,000 was given away as prize money and Mr Novelli drew the winning ticket of a top prize of £5,000. Over £94,000 was raised on the day for the hospice and its seven local partner hospices, including Grove House in St Albans.

Lottery Director Helen Elliot said: "I would like to thank the amazing generosity of our wonderful supporters who have helped in raising this fantastic sum of money. Special thanks go to Jean-Christophe, who not only gave up his precious time for us but also made an extremely generous donation.
