The Worcestershire Hospices Lottery is your local lottery, offering you an excellent chance to help St Richard’s Hospice, Acorns Children’s Hospice Trust and Primrose Hospice to raise much needed funds, whilst at the same time providing you with an opportunity to win a cash prize of up to £1000 each week, or our roll-over prize which can reach £3000.
Money raised will be used for the sole benefit of the hospices to contribute towards their day to day running costs.
How much does it cost and how do you ‘pay & play’
There is a weekly prize fund of £1,700 and it costs £1 per week to play. You can pay by cheque, standing order or credit/debit card. (Please note it has been brought to our attention that some Credit Card providers have started making a charge to process Lottery payments, we therefore advise that you check your provider’s terms and conditions)
We also have cash collectors in some areas.
When you join you are issued with a five digit unique number. Providing you have paid in advance of the draw, your number will be entered into the draw for the number of weeks you have paid.
Winners are selected at random by the lottery computer. The draw takes place every Friday morning at the lottery office in Worcester.
How do I claim if I have won?
There is no need to claim; if you win one of the top prizes we will contact you by telephone. However, all the prizes are sent out automatically. The full list of winners is available from the lottery office in Worcester and on this webpage. Top numbers are published in the local press (space allowing).
Where does all the money go?
All the profits are divided equally between the three hospices. Last year we raised a profit of £280,000. Since our first draw in 1999 we have raised over £2.5 million for Worcestershire’s hospices. We couldn’t do it without the support of our loyal members.
