LOTTIE the elephant seems to have packed her bags and left the circus - or so think staff at Hospiscare in Seaton.The teddy, promoting the charity's lottery, disappeared last week and is already missed.Branch manager Teresa Evans said: "Lottie was such a hard worker and willing to sit in the window promoting Hospiscare Lottery. Sadly, now we don't know where she is and she no longer helps us raise vital funds for Hospiscare."For anyone interested in their own Lottie, visit the store in Marine Crescent and help her 'troop' continue to raise over �250,000 per year to help ease the pain of Hospiscare patients.
