St Catherine’s Hospice lottery celebrates a thousand draws

News and Blog

St Catherine’s Hospice had a whole lotto reasons to celebrate on Friday (29 September) as it reached its thousandth lottery draw.

Every week, around 17,000 players take a chance on winning one of 19 cash prizes, and their collective support has helped raise more than £10 million to provide expert care for terminally ill people and their family and friends across Sussex and Surrey.

For just a pound a week, you could be in with a chance of winning a cash prize, ranging from the top £1,000 jackpot to 16 prizes of £25, whilst playing your part to help terminally ill people in your local community. Across the lottery’s 19 year history there’s been more than 29,500 lucky winners – now you could join them!

Zoe Dolding, Individual Giving Co-ordinator at St Catherine’s said: “The lottery is an essential part of our fundraising and our lottery players have made an incredible difference to the people we care for. Their ongoing support helps to cover the cost of providing our expert end of life care when people need us most. Taking part in our lottery is an easy way for you to support your local hospice, and whilst your weekly pound might seem a small amount to donate, collectively your pounds add up to make a huge difference.”

Every day it costs St Catherine’s around £18,500 to provide local people with expert end of life care. By supporting the lottery each week your money will help fund this vital care. Your support could help St Catherine’s community nurses provide people and their families with care and support in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes, or it could help St Catherine’s Patient and Family Support Team provide counselling to a bereaved child.
