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 Cynthia Spencer Hospice and 10 other hospices across Great Britain. The lottery has raised over £330,000 for the charity since they joined in 2014, helping to fund specialist palliative care services making every moment count for patients and their families. There are currently over 7,000 players in the draw in support of Cynthia Spencer Hospice with over £58,000 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 Cynthia Spencer Hospice, 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.
