Seasonal thank you as Lottery draw raises £45k
Posted on 15 December 2016
Pilgrims Hospices Lottery team today sent out a very special seasonal thank you to all the generous local people who have taken part in its big 20th Anniversary Draw.
Since the draw was launched in September hundreds of supporters have raised nearly £45k for hospice care, joining in by playing online and by selling special printed raffle tickets.
Our lucky winning numbers can be seen here.
An amazing £4,000 worth of prizes were won by players across east Kent, including the £2,000 top prize which went to a delighted Mrs F from Folkestone.
Our warmest Christmas wishes to everyone who supported our very special Anniversary Draw.
Shiralee Riddell, Pilgrims Lottery Manager, said: “Our warmest Christmas wishes to everyone who supported our very special Anniversary Draw, we couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate 20 years of the hospice Lottery.”
Each year Pilgrims supports hundreds of local people coping with a life limiting illness and their families. It’s Lottery draws make a vital contribution to funding that care.
“Thanks to your generosity the Lottery’s Anniversary draw has raised enough to cover the cost of 281 days care from a Pilgrims nurse – on our wards and in people’s own homes, or through our new wellbeing and social programme supporting people to stay independent after they are diagnosed. What an amazing achievement.”
As well holding annual fundraising draws with big cash prizes up for grabs, Pilgrims Hospices Lottery also offers scratch cards, Christmas Gift Vouchers and wedding favours. Not to mention it’s fantastic weekly draw, which has a community of over 20,000 people each paying just £1 per week for a chance to win up to £20,000.
