£10,000 rollover jackpot must be won by hospice lottery player this Friday!


Tuesday 4 September 2018



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 7 September.

The jackpot cannot rollover again, so a winner is guaranteed!

Your Hospice Lottery is a weekly fundraising lottery draw, raising funds for 11 hospices - including Arthur Rank Hospice - and the Charity is wishing good luck to everyone who plays in support of them. Nearly £1 million has been raised for the Cambridgeshire hospice since their partnership with Your Hospice Lottery began in 2011, helping to fund specialist palliative care services making every moment count for patients and their families.

The excitement has been building over the last few weeks: every time the rollover jackpot has not been won, the total has increased by £250, 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 1 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!”

There are currently nearly 8,000 players in the draw, raising funds in support of Arthur Rank Hospice Charity. Over £165,000 has been paid out in prize money 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 Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, 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.

To be in with a chance of winning the £10,000 jackpot on 7 September or one of the other 136 weekly guaranteed cash prizes ranging from £10 to £1,000, pay online by debit or credit card here by 12.00pm on Thursday 6 September or telephone the lottery office on 0800 285 1390 (minimum payment £10 for 10 weeks play). Lottery players must be 16 or over. Each number played costs £1 per week.

The YHL team look forward to announcing the winner next week- GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! The winning numbers are revealed each week at www.yourhospicelottery.org.uk/results.
