One lucky person playing Your Hospice Lottery will receive a nice post summer holiday boost to their bank account, as the rollover jackpot reaches the maximum of £10,000 on Friday 7th September. The jackpot cannot rollover again, so a winner is guaranteed! Good luck to all players in support of St Helena.
The excitement has been building over the last few weeks as the rollover jackpot has increased by £250 each week it was not won, creeping nearer and nearer to the £10,000 milestone. In fact, the rollover prize has not been won since Michelle Macrae scooped the maximum jackpot on 1st December last year. Christmas came early for Michelle as she was the unexpected recipient of a cheque for £10,000 after playing the lottery for over five years.
She said: “I would say to anyone who gets to know about the lottery, just go for it and sign up. It’s just a small amount to give and makes such a massive difference. You’ve got to be in it to win it!”
Your Hospice Lottery is a weekly fundraising lottery draw supporting St Helena and 10 other hospices across Great Britain. The lottery has raised over £7.6 million for the charity since it started in 2001, helping to fund specialist palliative care services making every moment count for patients and their families. There are currently over 14,000 players in the draw in support of St Helena with over £880,000 paid out in prize money so far to those players.
Alex Howe, Head of Lottery, said: “We are very excited to be giving away £10,000 again and making one lucky player very happy! Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to win our rollover jackpot and raise vital funds for St Helena, there is not a better time to join!”
He went on to say “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal lottery players for your continued support, you are all amazing! Your membership really does make all the difference to patients and their families in need of hospice care. Good luck in the draw!”
Owned and run by St Helena in Colchester, Your Hospice Lottery enables players to select which individual hospice they wish to support with their membership. By working in collaboration with the other hospices, the lottery’s overheads and costs are kept to a minimum so more funds raised can be used to directly benefit patients and their families.
