There are lots of great reasons to play our weekly lottery – not only will you be supporting our care, but you’ll also be in with the chance of winning one of 28 cash prizes every week!
Our weekly draw gives away a top prize of £1,000, as well as 27 other cash prizes. You’re ten times more likely to win £1,000 with us than with the National Lottery – and it’s half the price.
Your £1 a week means that we can be there for the people who need us most. In order to continue to deliver our services to the local community, we need to raise nearly £9 million every year – that’s well over £170,000 every week. After prizes and running costs, our lottery raised nearly £360,000 in 2019/20 so your £1 really does makes a difference.
So please, join in today, and help us to continue to provide vital care in your community.
The Lottery’s contribution to Prospect Hospice
By law, all society lotteries must ensure that at least 20% of the proceeds of any lottery are applied to the purpose for which the charity exists. In the year 2019/20, after expenses and prizes, 68% of the proceeds from Prospect Hospices Lottery was applied to the provision of care by Prospect Hospice.
- It only costs £1 per week to enter our lottery and it’s easy to pay by Direct Debit.
- You have ten times more chance of winning £1,000 with us than on the National Lottery.
- The draw takes place every Friday.
