Local Hospice Lottery
Our exciting new fundraising initiative in the form of a weekly lottery is now up and running.
Local Hospice Lottery, which has been introduced as part of the Hospice’s 25th Anniversary celebrations, gives people in the Highlands the opportunity to win up to £1,500 each week. The Lottery has a total weekly prize fund of £3,000, and a rollover prize which can reach up to £10,000.
Each chance to take part in the lottery costs just £1, with lottery software randomly generating a six digit lottery number for the player. Prizes are issued automatically so you don’t need to worry about remembering to check your game number and claim your prize.
Highland Hospice is the fourth UK hospice to join the Local Hospice Lottery, which has been running since 1996.
Local Hospice Lottery is drawn every Friday, with a top weekly prize of £1,500, a second prize of £400, a third prize of £100 and 100 prizes of £10 each. If the second prize is not won, it rolls over each week to a maximum of £10,000. Highland Hospice receives between 40p and 60p from every £1, with the potential for this figure to rise as the popularity of the lottery increases. This compares to as little as 5p in every £1 going to charities with the National Lottery.
Your chances of winning the top prize are approximately three times better than your chance of winning a similar prize in the National Lottery’s Lotto Draw, and all proceeds from lottery tickets purchased in the Highlands will be used to deliver the Hospice's services in the Highlands.”
