Tring, Hertfordshire – The Hospice Lottery Partnership (HLP), which raises funds for 6 local hospices, has held it’s Christmas Superdraw giving a top prize of £5,000 to one lucky person. There were also second and third prizes kindly donated by Oakman Inns & Restaurants and Waddesdon Manor. Plus 10 prizes of HLP memberships, worth £52 each.
The first prize winner was Mrs B from Uxbridge who likes to support certain charities at Christmas. She didn’t believe it when she was first told she had won “You are joking aren’t you? Gosh, that is wonderful – I’ve never won anything before!”
Belinda Ellis, Business Development Manager at HLP, said “We would like to say a big ‘Thank You’ to everyone who bought tickets – this Superdraw has been so successful, bringing in £54,671 which goes directly to our Partner Hospices and helping to raise awareness across their catchment areas. If you weren’t lucky this time, look out for details of the Summer Superdraw 2015 coming soon!”
The Christmas Superdraw is held as an additional draw to the weekly lottery. There are just over 33,000 weekly players all of whom help to raise money to support the specialist care that our partners provide. Indeed, they have enabled us to distribute over £7million to them to date.
