Winning a trip to the seaside with St Oswald's Lottery

St Oswald’s Hospice lottery is the ultimate way to support your local hospice. You can be in with the chance of scooping weekly prizes of up to £1,000 and a rollover jackpot of £10,000 all for £2 per play whilst helping a local charity make a real difference. Everyone’s a winner!

One of our Hospice Lottery players, Mrs Brydon, was thrilled to learn she’d won the weekly top prize of £1000 recently! She told us more:

We’ve been supporting the Hospice for a while now but I only signed up to play the Lottery during the first lockdown. I know COVID has put a strain on fundraising and many charities have been struggling with raising money so I wanted to help where I could. My dad had lung cancer and stayed in a Hospice so I know places like St Oswald’s are fantastic. If they can make someone’s life more comfortable then that’s an amazing thing to support.

Winning the grand prize of £1000 was a lovely surprise. My husband and I decided to treat ourselves, so we thought we’d visit Beadnell, one of our favourite places along the Northumberland Coast. We’re going for a week and we can’t wait! We’ve been very careful during COVID and this will be one of the first times going away since it started. I love being near the beach and can’t wait for a few days of relaxation.

We wanted to give back to the Hospice so we’ve donated £250 from our winnings. It’s not a lot, but if everyone gives a little, it all helps and adds up. The things you do make such an impact on the community and I know first-hand, how much Hospice care means to not only the patient, but to the family too.

If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning up to £10,000, visit our Lottery page here.

Good luck!
