Win up to £10,000
The current Southampton Hospital Charity lottery is going through some changes. As from 4 April, we will be relaunching our lottery.
Victoria Greenshields, fundraising manager, comments: “The charity raises funds to pay for equipment and facilities that benefit patients throughout the hospital and help keep us at the forefront of healthcare. 50% of the total income generated from the lottery will be given out in prize money.”
All money raised goes into the general fund. Recently we have used this money to pay for additional patient wheelchairs, and paid for the patients to receive free TV and phone calls over the Christmas and New Year period.”
The main change will notice is that we are reducing the number of prizes. This will allow us to increase the amount of money you could win. Average prizes based on 1,500 weekly players are: 1st prize £375, 2nd prize £185, 3rd prize £110, 4th prize £75.”
You could win up to £10,000 just by supporting your local hospital!”
So how does it work?
Each lucky number costs only £1 a week (that’s cheaper than the national lottery) and you can purchase as many numbers as you wish. You are issued with a unique computer generated number which will be yours for as long as you play. Draws take place every Friday, with the winning numbers being randomly selected by computer.
For 1st, 2nd and 4th prize the computer will pick the winning numbers at random from the allocated numbers only. For the 3rd prize all the numbers (including the numbers not yet allocated) will be put into the computer system for one to be picked at random. If the number is not yet allocated then the prize money will rollover week on week until we have a winner, or it reaches £10,000. Once the rollover reaches £10,000, only the allocated numbers will be in for a chance of winning the jackpot.
To join the lottery simply download the lottery form, pick up a lottery leaflet when visiting Southampton General Hospital and Princess Anne Hospital, or call the charity offices on 023 8120 8881.
