Be a winner, be a supporter – St Peter & St James Hospice launches partnership with Local Hospice Lottery!
St Peter & St James Hospice has announced an exciting new fundraising initiative for people throughout the towns of Lewes, Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Uckfield and surrounding areas, in the form of a new partnership with Local Hospice Lottery.
The weekly lottery, which already works with a number of hospices throughout Great Britain, has just been launched, giving people in the areas where St Peter & St James works the chance to win up to £1,500 each week and to win a roll-over prize that can reach as high as £10,000!
St Peter & St James Hospice’s services are provided free of charge to patients and their families. This means the Hospice continues to rely on the generosity of local people to help raise 86% of its annual running costs. The new partnership with Local Hospice Lottery is a new way for the Hospice to help raise these vital funds.
Each chance to take part in the lottery costs just £1 and the draw takes place every Friday, with a top weekly prize of £1,500, a second prize of £400 which, if not won, can roll-over to £10,000, a third prize of £100 and 100 prizes of £10 each.
One person who is supporting the Local Hospice Lottery is Jo July, because her husband Martin was cared for by the hospice. Jo said, “Martin was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer and died at the age of 46. The care and support Martin received during his illness, and at the end of his life, was delivered with love by the hospice, as was the care and support given to me and our 3- year old twin daughters. That’s why I’m urging as many people as possible to join the Local
Hospice Lottery to support St Peter & St James Hospice, so that other families can benefit from the same outstanding care as we did.”
Sue Adams, Director of Fundraising and Marketing, said, “By joining the Local Hospice Lottery you have a great chance of winning while helping to support St Peter & St James Hospice. Every day we need to raise over £7,200 to run St Peter & St James Hospice services and every entry really does make a difference to the people receiving our care.”
