Carer Donna wins jack­pot!

Midweek Visiter - - St Joseph’s Hospice -

THE St. Joseph’s Hos­pice Lot­tery pays out £1,500 to lo­cal peo­ple ev­ery sin­gle week and raises over £80,000 ev­ery year for the hos­pice.

One lucky per­son wins the weekly £1,000 jack­pot but there are other prizes up for grabs too, in­clud­ing a £250 prize, a £100 prize and fifteen £10 prizes.

Last month, one of our jack­pot win­ners was one of our very own health­care as­sis­tants, Donna Jones.

Donna has played the hos­pice lot­tery for four years and has won £10 be­fore, but this time her luck changed and she scored the jack­pot.

Donna said she wants to share her win­nings with her mum but she has also promised to take a well-earned hol­i­day too.

The St. Joseph’s Hos­pice lot­tery has been go­ing for over 16 years and has over 3,000 play­ers, on av­er­age, each week.

Each and ev­ery player helps to fund the im­por­tant work of the hos­pice.

For just £1 a week, all our lot­tery play­ers have a chance of win­ning one of 18 cash prizes, in­clud­ing the £1,000 jack­pot!

The odds of win­ning are far bet­ter than most other lot­ter­ies.

At St Joseph’s Hos­pice, we pro­vide end of life and pal­lia­tive care to over 200 peo­ple ev­ery year.

We also care for and sup­port our pa­tient’s fam­i­lies.

As a char­ity, we need to raise £3m a year to con­tinue pro­vid­ing this care but we have am­bi­tions far be­yond this as we hope to be able to care for even more peo­ple in the fu­ture.

Play­ing the St. Joseph’s Hos­pice Lot­tery is a small way of mak­ing a big dif­fer­ence.

Your weekly do­na­tion of just £1 goes a very long way.

It may be a small amount but, be­cause it’s a reg­u­lar con­tri­bu­tion, it helps us to plan ahead for the fu­ture too.

Any­one can join our lot­tery... just down­load a form from www.jospice. org.uk or email lot­tery-of­fice@ jospice.org.uk.
