We are a fundraising lottery, raising funds for hospices in the UK.
We run a weekly lottery draw, where you can play to raise funds for the hospice charity of your choice. It’s easy, simple and it’s fun!
It costs just £1 per play and you can play regularly, weekly or whenever you want to.
Our aim is to provide hospices a regular and reliable income from the lottery and give them the chance to make a difference to the lives of the people affected by life limiting and life threatening conditions.
Your Hospice Lottery is owned and run by St Helena, a hospice charity based in Colchester, so we really understand how important it is to fundraise to make sure patients and their loved ones continue to receive the best hospice care possible, free of charge.
ALL of the profits of our lottery go back into the charity sector, and to where the money is needed the most. St Helena receives a small income towards hospice care from each lottery play for administering the lottery.
Lotteries can be expensive to run, and therefore with registered hospices all working together in this way, it means that we can combine resources and more money can go back to charity.
We have been running and administering lotteries for over 20 years, and have run the successful Your Hospice Lottery since 2001 with our first partner on board- Arthur Rank Hospice Charity. We now support many hospices throughout the UK, and we thank you for helping to support those by playing our lottery.
Together, we can make a huge difference.
Your Hospice Lottery provides a valuable, regular income to help run each hospice and we could not do this without our loyal players.

How To Win
The Your Hospice Lottery draw usually takes place on Friday (with exception when this is a Bank Holiday, when it will take place the working day prior), automatically by our system which has been independently tested, using a variety of industry-standard statistical tests carried out by a Gambling Commission approved test house.
Tickets must be purchased before the draw takes place for guaranteed entry into the weekly draw. Please check the countdown on the website for specific cut off. If you purchase after this time, you will be entered into the following draw.
When you join, we will allocate you with a lottery play number. Our draws are randomly drawn each Friday (with exception when this is a Bank Holiday, when it will take place the working day prior). You don’t need to check the results every week, although you can if you want to. If you win, we will contact you to let you know. If we have your email, your prize winnings will automatically go into your Your Hospice Lottery account; where you can then request a withdrawal, after which monies are then transferred into your bank account, or if you don’t have an email with us, a letter and cheque will be sent via post (please make sure that we have your up to date address).
