Your money goes to a great cause...
The Woodlands Hospice Lottery plays a vital part in our fundraising with all profits from the lottery going directly to the Hospice. Your £1 really can make a difference to the lives of our patients and their loved ones.
1st prize of £500, 2nd Prize £100, 2 prizes of £50 and 5 prizes of £10 each - every week
Each weekly entry in the lottery costs just £1. When you register as a member, you will be sent your own unique number which will be entered into the draw for you every week. The lottery computer randomly chooses nine winners every Friday.
Our top prize jackpot doubles to £1000 in our Christmas Superdraw taking place this year on 24th December 2021. Woodlands Hospice Lottery Members are automatically entered into our superdraw and will be in with a chance of winning the top prize pot. Extra tickets can be purchased to increase your chances of winning at our hospice reception, our charity shops or by calling us on 0151 529 2630.
You don't even have to claim your prizes as cheques are sent out automatically following each draw. You can also check our list of latest winners here. All the prizes are won each week there are no shared prizes or rollovers!!
