Join our Lottery

As a long-time supporter of St Michael's Hospice I have played the Lottery for many years. The work they do at the Hospice and in people's homes is amazing and they are such an important part of our local community. I couldn't believe I had won, we are now packed and looking forward to our holiday. Nikki, a £2,000 top prize winner

Join our Lottery for the chance to win our £2,000 jackpot plus 104 other weekly cash prizes!

Our Lottery was set up in 1997 to provide additional financial support to help maintain the much needed services provided by the Hospice. All profits from the Lottery go to support St Michael's Hospice, and to date, the Lottery has contributed in excess of £7.4 million.

How does the Lottery work?

The cost is £1 per week, per entry. You can have as many entries per week as you like. When you start to play you will be given a unique five digit number for each of your entries. The numbers are chosen randomly by computer - no other player will have the same unique number as you. The weekly draw is made by computer every Friday, with 105 guaranteed winners every week. All the profits from the lottery go to St Michael’s Hospice.

Weekly prizes
1st prize: £2,000
2nd prize: £250
3rd prize: £150
4th prize: £75
5th prize: £25
plus 100 winners each receive £5

You can pay for your lottery subscription through a cash collector or by cheque or direct debit. Visit our online Weekly Lottery Entry Form to enter.

What happens next? 

Within 21 days you will receive a letter confirming your unique lottery number(s) and the date of your first Direct Debit collection (if applicable). Should you require any further information please contact the Lottery team on 01424 456384 or email us.

How will I know if I have won?

A cheque is automatically sent to our lucky draw winners (within a few days of each weekly draw). You do not need to contact us to claim a prize. Winning numbers are uploaded onto the Hospice website every week.

For every £1 played in our lottery, 63p goes to St Michael’s Hospice (the legal requirement is to pay at least 20p), 16p goes into the prize fund and 21p covers our administration, promotion, and legal regulation. Our running costs are kept as low as possible in order to hand over the maximum amount to the Hospice that we can.
