Play the Local Hospice Lottery

Join the lottery that gives you a chance to win great cash prizes every week, PLUS an easy way to support your local Hospice!

St. Michael’s Hospice is proud to be working with Local Hospice Lottery – a weekly lottery set up to provide financial support to adult and children’s hospices across Great Britain.

Playing the Local Hospice Lottery in support of St. Michael’s Hospice gives you a chance to win £2,000 every single week – along with 200 other cash prizes. PLUS…there’s a rollover that can reach as high as £25,000*! Players are also automatically entered into Super Draws, which take place every March, September and December and have an additional guaranteed top prize of an incredible £10,000!

And as well as having a great chance to win, you will of course also be helping to make a real difference to local families in need of our help, as the Lottery provides regular income we can rely on. So it really is win-win! To join the Local Hospice Lottery right now, simply click here, or call Freephone 0800 316 0645.

* The £1,000 prize can roll over to a maximum of £25,000 (excluding Super Draw weeks where the £1,000 prize will always remain £1,000)!

Prizes are issued automatically each week, so you don’t even need to worry about remembering to check your number(s) or claim any prizes. However, the weekly winning numbers are always available on the Local Hospice Lottery website, or via Facebook and Twitter.

The more people that join – the more we receive!

Local Hospice Lottery is a hospice owned collaboration. By sharing one prize fund and set of administration costs, players can benefit from a larger prize fund (the biggest of any hospice lottery!) and more money can be raised for St Michael’s Hospice than if we ran our own lottery.

Further detail about prizes and how the Lottery works is available here.

St. Michael’s Hospice (North Hampshire) is one of a number of hospices throughout Great Britain supported by Local Hospice Lottery. Local Hospice Lottery will give between 60% and 80% of profits from individuals playing in support of St. Michael’s Hospice to St. Michael’s Hospice. This is expected to be at least £800,000 over five years from October 2023. A full list of the hospices supported, along with Terms and Conditions, can be seen on the Local Hospice Lottery website or provided upon request from ‘Freepost Local Hospice Lottery’.

To help to recruit players, a team of paid fundraisers will be working in the local area both door-to-door and at venues. Each member of the team will be wearing a uniform and will have a Local Hospice Lottery photo identity card with them. You can view members of the team on the Local Hospice Lottery website by clicking here. All authorised fundraisers are paid by Local Hospice Lottery Ltd.

Already Playing the Lottery for St Michael's Hospice?

For existing players of the St. Michael’s Hospice Lottery Due to contractual agreements that are already in place with current suppliers, St. Michael’s Hospice cannot cease its own lottery and transfer existing players to the Local Hospice Lottery until the beginning of October 2024. However, new players will be able to sign up to play the Local Hospice Lottery in support of St. Michael’s Hospice from August 2023 onwards. Operating the two lotteries simultaneously in the short term is the most cost-effective way of supporting St. Michael’s Hospice. We will be writing to all of our existing players with further information on this change in August 2024. For each £1 that players currently subscribe to St. Michael’s Hospice Lottery draws, they will be allocated a new game number in the weekly Local Hospice Lottery draw. For example, if a player currently subscribes £2 to play in St. Michael’s Hospice Lottery weekly draw, they will be allocated two new game numbers to enter Local Hospice Lottery’s weekly draw.
