Our Summer Superdraw 2015 launches and tickets go on sale this week.
Postal entries need to be received by 23 June and the main draw will take place at the Tring Carnival on Saturday 27 June.
First prize in the Summer Superdraw is £5,000.
Second prize is an Essentials Day for Two courtesy of Champneys Health Spa
Third prize is Champagne Tea for Two courtesy of Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire. There are also ten one-year subscriptions to The Hospice Lottery weekly draw worth £52, to be won.
Anyone who returns their tickets before 5 May will be entered in to a bonus Fast Reply Draw, and could win one of ten £25 Bonusbond gift cards, donated by Grass Roots in Tring.
Tickets cost £1 each and are available online here.
HLP ran two draws last year, which brought in a grand total of £98,750, and contributed to over £1million being raised in total by HLP for its partner hospices in 2014-15.
We have a good number of small balances in players’ accounts which total less than £1 after cancelling their membership. As result, we have changed our terms and conditions to reflect this (section 11b).
As you can imagine, it is expensive for us to process repayments for all accounts, so in order to keep our costs down, any small amounts arising from cancelled memberships will now be treated as donations to our partner hospices.
If you would like a refund of a small amount, please call us on 01442 891459 by Monday 1st June.

A very lucky supporter of The Hospice Lottery Partnership from Hemel Hempstead won the £9,600 Rollover Prize on Friday 27th March.
The Rollover Prize which rolls each week until it is won, had been rolling for 48 weeks creating a real buzz in the HLP office and with their supporters, resulting in increased sales of tickets across HLP’s catchment area.
Mrs Aylward, a member of The Hospice Lottery since 2012, has previously won two small amounts but was absolutely delighted to win big
“Wow! What a lovely surprise. I joined HLP to give something back to local charities – the care that these hospices give is so special – I never expected to win!” She signed up to the lottery while at Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood while receiving cancer treatment of her own.
“I’ve won two other things recently – a photo session with a professional photographer and 4 tickets for the Bobby Moore Suite at Wembley to watch Saracens – but this is the icing on the cake, thank you!”
Mrs Aylward used to be a Community Nurse Manager working alongside nurses from HLP partner hospices, Iain Rennie Hospice at Home and The Hospice of St Francis and is more than aware of the fantastic work they do. “It’s such a small world!” she commented.
When asked what she would spend the money on she said “Well it hasn’t really sunk in yet, but after 3 years I hopefully come to the end of my treatment in May, so a nice long holiday is definitely in order. But I would also like to donate back £600 to HLP to say ‘thank you’.”
Her Husband also joked that some of it will probably go on wool as she loves knitting so much!
Belinda Ellis, from HLP said “When we presented her with her cheque, you could see the excitement in her eyes and her genuine appreciation. It’s moments like that, that make our job even more special.”
Watch a little video of the moment it was won.
An interview with the winner will appear here shortly.
