Bumper summer lottery raises £37,000 for Hospice!

Players of the Mary Stevens Hospice lottery have raised more than £37,000 for families relying on the care of the charity.

Alongside the usual weekly Hospice lottery, Lottery staff at the charity run a seasonal “Big Draw” twice a year giving supporters the opportunity to win a top prize of £5000 every summer and Christmas.

More than 37,000 tickets were sold across the West Midlands for the 2018 summer draw, with a mixture of regular players and supporters buying one-off tickets putting their names in the hat to win up to £5000!

Diane Moore, Lottery Manager, Mary Stevens Hospice said: “Our lottery players make such a wonderful contribution to the Hospice each week and our care simply wouldn’t be possible without each and every one of them.

This draw is always a huge source of excitement and the reaction we get when we call to let a supporter know they’ve won £5000 is something we look forward to all year!

So, congratulations to all of our winners and thank you to everyone who took part.”

The charity currently run a weekly draw which can be entered for £1 per week, with the chance to win up to £1000 every week.

Within the weekly draw the Hospice also offer a rollover prize, which increases £500 every week it’s not won, which currently stands at £5000.
