Superdraw’s special boost for hospices
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.
