Lotteries and raffles

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, while at the same time providing you with an opportunity to win a cash prize of up to £500 each week, or our rollover prize which can reach £5,000.

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.

Weekly prizes

1st = £500

2nd = £50

3rd = 60 x £5

Rollover of up to £5,000

How much does it cost and how do you ‘pay & play’

There is a weekly prize fund of £850 and it costs £1 per week to play. You can pay by cheque, Direct Debit or debit card.

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 at

Where does all the money go?

Since our first draw in 1999, we have raised more than three million for Worcestershire’s hospices. We couldn’t do it without the support of our loyal members.

In 2022, the likelihood of winning a prize was, on average, 1 in 122 in our regular weekly lotteries and 1 in 247 in our seasonal Bumper Draw.

Players in our weekly lotteries and the seasonal Bumper Draws are also automatically entered into a weekly Rollover draw.

Our Rollover prize increases by £100 each week it isn’t won (in 2022, the likelihood of winning was, on average, 1 in 397,174) and if it reaches £5,000, then one lucky player will be guaranteed to win that week (when the likelihood of winning reverts to the aforementioned weekly lottery and seasonal Bumper Draw averages).

In 2022, £409,353.00 was raised from ticket sales in our regular weekly lotteries and seasonal Bumper Draws, with 12.35% being spent on Prizes, 42.40% spent on Expenses and 45.25% used to fund the hospices’ care of patients and their families. This translated to a fantastic £185,221.93! (Based upon the Lottery Submissions made to the Gambling Commission during the 2022 calendar year).

The percentage used to fund Hospice care for patients and families is lower this year due to a “player recruitment campaign” that will benefit the Hospices in the longer term.

All proceeds go to Worcestershire Hospices Lottery Ltd (Company Registration No 36 89508) which is jointly owned by Acorns Children’s Hospice Trust (Registered Charity No. 700859), Primrose Hospice (Registered Charity No. 700272) and St Richard’s Hospice (Registered Charity No. 515668), with all profits being shared equally between the three hospices.
