Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

AN AN­NUAL lot­tery raised more than £50,000 for lo­cal hos­pices.

The Hospice Lot­tery Part­ner­ship, which raises funds for six lo­cal hos­pices, re­cently held its Christ­mas Su­per­draw, giv­ing a top prize of £5,000 to one lucky per­son.

There were also sec­ond and third prizes do­nated by Oak­man Inns and Restau­rants and Wad­des­don Manor, plus 10 prizes of Hospice Lot­tery Part­ner­ship mem­ber­ships, worth £52 each.

Business de­vel­op­ment man­ager at HLP Belinda El­lis said: “We’d like to say a big thank you to ev­ery­one who bought tick­ets – this draw has been so suc­cess­ful, bring­ing in £54,671 which goes di­rectly to our part­ner hos­pices and help­ing to raise aware­ness across their catch­ment ar­eas.”

There are just over 33,000 weekly play­ers all of whom last year helped raise more than £7mil­lion for The Hospice of St Fran­cis, Iain Ren­nie Hospice at Home, South Bucks Hospice, Florence Nightin­gale Hospice Char­ity in Ayles­bury, Grove House in St Al­bans and Michael So­bell Hospice in North­wood.
