Worcestershire Hospices Lottery

The Worcestershire Hospices Lottery is your local lottery. It offers you an excellent chance to help Acorns Children’s Hospice Trust, St Richard’s Hospice and Primrose Hospice to raise much needed funds.

At the same time it provides you with an opportunity to win a cash prize of up to £1000 each week, or our roll-over prize which can reach £3000. Money raised will be used for the sole benefit of the hospices to contribute towards their day to day running costs.
