Supporters of St Ann’s have a brand new way of playing the hospice’s lottery, potentially winning thousands of pounds in prize money, whilst helping local patients and their families at the same time.
The hospice has announced that, for the first time since its lottery launched almost 25 years ago, supporters are able to purchase tickets in any of its fourteen shops around Greater Manchester. The team has also revamped the prize structure of the weekly lottery, meaning an increased prize pot for local people to potentially get their hands on.
Lottery Manager Trudi Ogden, explained: “The St Ann’s Local Lottery is one of the easiest ways people can show their support for our patients, with the added bonus that they might win a very special prize.
“We’re really excited to announce the new changes to the lottery which mean that in addition to our weekly jackpot of £2,000, we are also now offering a rollover prize of £1,000 a week, up to a maximum of £10,000, and other weekly prizes of £50 for four winners, and £10 for 30 winners too.
“We’ve also made it even easier for our supporters to purchase tickets. They can now simply pop into one of the hospice’s 14 shops around Greater Manchester to buy their weekly £2 ticket, in addition to being able to sign up online at www.sah.org.uk/lottery. The changes all hopefully mean it’s incredibly simple for local people to take part, and we’d love as many new players as possible to join in.
“It really is an easy way to support the hospice, and with lots of prizes to be won, there’s even more chance of winning. We can’t wait to see who our first lucky winners will be of this newly revamped lottery. We’re all really excited!”
St Ann’s Hospice is a charity which provides care for patients from across Greater Manchester from its three sites in Heald Green, Little Hulton, and The Neil Cliffe Centre, as well as via a range of community and outreach services. Its care is provided free of charge to patients, with the remaining costs of delivering care to thousands of people every year – totalling £20,000 a day – fundraised and brought in via a range of events and trading activities, including the hospice’s lottery.
