Play our lottery

Your Hospice Lottery is our weekly lottery draw, a fun way to raise funds to support St Helena and it also gives you the opportunity to win weekly cash prizes!

Join in for only £1 per play per week and you could win one of 176 guaranteed weekly cash prizes - a top prize of £1,000, plus a rollover of up to £25,000! After running costs and prize funds are taken out, every penny of the rest of your £1 goes directly to support our services.

Our Hospice in the Home service relies on the regular income we get from local people playing the lottery. As part of this service our Community Nurse Specialists give emotional support and practical advice to patients and families in their own homes across North Essex, using their expert knowledge in pain and symptom control to help people with incurable illness to live well with dignity.

Guaranteed weekly prizes:

1st prize £1,000

175 prizes of £10

The rollover prize is selected from random numbers and if not won increases every week by £500 to a maximum of £25,000!
