A new lottery has been launched by Sue Ryder - St John’s to help raise funding for its hospice and neurological care, while giving supporters a chance to win up to £10k.
This is the first national lottery for Sue Ryder and all profits made from the sale of tickets goes towards the care provided.
Holly Spiers, Sue Ryder fundraising director said; “At Sue Ryder we need to generate over £37.7m each year so we can keep our services running.
“Having a lottery gives us a new and exciting way to engage with our supporters and raise vital funds.
“This new scheme hopes to raise vital income while providing our customers with a chance to win cash prizes.
“As well as donating to Sue Ryder nationally, players can also select an individual hospice, such as at Moggerhanger, if they want money to go towards raising funds that particular hospice. All the profits raised from the sale of the lottery tickets support our incredible care. £50 provides one session of bereavement counselling for someone struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one.
Supporters are asked to sign-up for £1 a week. They will be allocated their own unique 6-digit lottery number and every Friday winners are randomly selected and the prize cheques are automatically sent directly to them by post. Supporters have the chance to win:
1st prize of £1,000; 2nd prize of £100; 3rd prize of £50. There will be 30 £5 winners. A rollover prize of up to £10,000 – starting off at £200 - can be won at any time and is designed to grow each week to a maximum of £10,000.
