Join the Worcestershire Hospices lottery

The Worcestershire Hospices Lottery

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.

Lottery office personnel, directors and their immediate household do not participate in the Hospices Lottery.

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)

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.

The draw takes place every Friday morning,winners are selected at random using a random number  generator. The draw itself is run by our lottery provider.

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. Top numbers are published on this web page and 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 over £317,000. Since our first draw in 1999 we have raised over three million for Worcestershire’s hospices.  We couldn’t do it without the support of our loyal members.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.

The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.

Latest changes at St Richard’s Hospice

  • In-patient Unit: It is with great sadness that due to stringent infection control measures, we are required to restrict visiting and cannot offer the comprehensive level of service in the way we usually do. However, we will still do our utmost to make sure that each patient and loved one is given the compassion and dignity they deserve. To help families stay in touch we are encouraging virtual visiting using technology such as video calls and apps. This will be discussed and explained to patients and families on admission and we can help provide access to equipment in the hospice. In addition, the IPU nursing team will liaise with each patient and family to arrange short daily visits from the patient's closest loved one and compassionate visiting, as appropriate. Read the full details here.
  • Community Nursing: Community services continue to operate, with a mixture of hands-on care and remote support.
  • Living Well and Family Support Services: Switched to virtual model, with care given remotely over the phone or via video call.
  • Shops: All 19 of our shops and warehouse are temporarily closed. Please do not leave donations outside our shops, as we are unable to collect them at this time.
  • Fundraising: All hospice organised events until the end of August have been postponed. If you wish to support us, please donate to our Resilience Fund.
