Last year our Hospice Lottery celebrated 25 years of winners – thank you for your amazing support!

In 1996, flip mobile phones were the new must-have, hearts broke as Take That announced their split, and Willen Hospice launched its first ever Lottery. It has been a huge success ever since raising over £6 million! That’s the equivalent of covering the entire running costs for all our Hospice services for over a year, from our lakeside IPU and care at home, to our Bereavement services, complementary therapy and more. We’ve also had a few winners in that time too – in fact, over 1,300 players have won our top prize of £1,000!

  • How does it work?

    You will be sent your own unique Willen Hospice Lottery draw number(s). These are the numbers that are entered into the draw each week. Every Friday, (or closest working day if it’s a bank holiday) the winning numbers are selected at random by computer and prizes are mailed to winners automatically. You can also check the winning numbers each week on our website or see the winning numbers displayed in our retail shops.

    If paying for a set number of weeks, we will send you a reminder two weeks before your subscription expires, so that you can renew if you wish. When renewing, please quote your Membership Number.

    If you selected to make a recurring payment this will keep running until cancelled and will keep your lottery membership in credit, so that you don’t have to worry about renewing. You can cancel your recurring payment at any time by contacting your card provider or bank accordingly. If you choose to cancel your recurring payment we would be grateful if you could also notify the Lottery office so that we can amend our records.

    If you purchased a Lottery subscription as a gift we will send the gift card to you, or directly to the recipient (as specified in your order). The gift card will give details of the unique number(s) entered into the draw and the number of weeks entered.
