A huge thank you to lottery players for raising over £250,000 for Cynthia Spencer Hospice
Hospice supporters have made a massive difference to the local community by raising over £250,000 for Cynthia Spencer Hospice, by playing Your Hospice Lottery. The exact figure raised to date is £262,116.85, which is all down to the loyal lottery players who play the fundraising lottery in support of Cynthia Spencer Hospice paying £1 per play per week, with every penny going towards hospice care.
The support from the Northamptonshire community has gone from strength to strength since Cynthia Spencer Hospice first teamed up with Your Hospice Lottery in March 2014 to bring its supporters an exciting chance to win cash prizes.
There are currently over 7,000 numbers played by local supporters in the draw each week which is making a massive difference to patients and families living with life limiting and life threatening conditions across Northampton and South Northamptonshire.
The Lottery is one of the easiest ways to support the hospice and it only costs players £1 per play each week, plus they have the chance of winning one of 136 guaranteed prizes ranging from £10 to £1,000 and a rollover jackpot, which if not won increases by £250 up to a maximum of £10,000. In December 2017, after months of rolling over, the jackpot reached the maximum of £10,000 for the very first time since the lottery began where a winner was guaranteed.
Over the past 4 years the Lottery has sent out over 2,900 prize cheques on behalf of Cynthia Spencer Hospice equating to over £50,000 in prize money. That includes 1 rollover jackpot winner and 18 winners of the £1,000 weekly top prize.
John Helm, Fundraising Manager at Cynthia Spencer commented: “We’d like to thank everyone who has ever played Your Hospice Lottery in support of Cynthia Spencer Hospice. This fantastic sum represents a quarter of what Cynthia Spencer Hospice Charity has spent on supporting our Hospice care teams in the last year. So thank you all for the wonderful difference you have made to Hospice care in South Northamptonshire.”
All of the services that Cynthia Spencer Hospice offer, are free for people to access which costs £2.4 million each year, a large part of which comes from the generous support of local companies and individuals throughout the county, like the thousands of lottery players.
Alex Howe, Head of Lottery at ‘Your Hospice Lottery’ commented “We are delighted to have helped Cynthia Spencer Hospice raise over £250,000 in the past 4 years. The response from the generous community of South Northamptonshire has been overwhelming and long may it continue allowing the hospice to make every moment count for patients and their families.”
