Play Your Hospice Lottery

Playing Your Hospice Lottery is a fun, easy, and affordable way to support the work of Weldmar Hospicecare every week, with tickets costing just £1 and some big prizes up for grabs!

You could win up to £25,000!

How it works

With Your Hospice Lottery, players choose which hospice they want to play in support of, so you can be sure you will be directly contributing to Weldmar Hospicecare. With the hospices working together in this way more funds can be used to support patients and their families throughout our communities.

During the weekly lottery, the draw is made every Friday. There is a guaranteed weekly winner of £1,000, and of £200, 20 prizes of £10, and 400 x £5 prizes. A Rollover Jackpot increases by £500 each week up to a potential £25,000!

Sign up to play online, or grab a ticket at any Weldmar Hospicecare shop in Dorset.

Paul Edmonds. Hospice lottery winner.

Congratulations to Paul Edmonds from Weymouth, who won the biggest ever prize given away by Your Hospice Lottery – an amazing £22,000 on the Rollover Jackpot!

Paul says he was utterly shocked when he got the call to tell him he’d won. He told us, “I think it’s really important to support Weldmar, it’s one of the most deserving charities, and the work they do is really very important. At £1 a ticket it’s well less than a pint of beer so it’s an easy way to support them!”

He is splitting the winnings with partner Elaine, planning a holiday, and very generously donating £2,000 back to Weldmar Hospicecare.

How to play and claim prizes:

  • One chance in the weekly draw is just £1.
  • The Lottery computer allocates a unique number for each chance.
  • You can sign up to be a regular player online and pay by monthly direct debit or debit card.
