Our lottery gives players the chance to get their hands on a weekly jackpot prize of £2,000, plus a rollover prize of £1,000 a week up to a maximum of £10,000. There are also a range of other weekly prizes including £50 for four lucky winners, and £10 for 30 additional winners.
This is definitely one of the easiest ways people can show support for our patients, and the best part of my job is calling the weekly winners to let them know they’ve scooped a prize. They’re always so excited, and it’s great to have conversations with them about what they might treat themselves to with their winnings. Working at the hospice I see first-hand the difference money raised from initiatives like our lottery have on patients and those closest to them. I’m really proud to be part of an organisation that’s been providing care to local people for half a century, and I know we’ve only been able to do that thanks to the amazing support of those who help us by playing our lottery or fundraising in other ways. Huge thanks. Trudi Ogden, Lottery Manager
The hospice team needs to raise around £20,000 a day to continue providing care, which is achieved via a range of events and trading activities, including the hospice’s lottery.
