RESIDENTS are being asked to continue to support St Luke's Hospice during this difficult time.

Since 1994, their lottery has grown to become their biggest single source of income and has raised more than £11 million to provide vital care for patients.

It is still just £1 a week to play, the same cost as when it was started 26 years ago, with the chance of winning up to £5,000.

A new rollover draw is being launched on Friday, April 3.

This will offer players the chance to win 35 prizes each week, including a £1,000 guaranteed jackpot and a £200 rollover.

If the rollover prize is not won it will be carried over and accumulate each week. It could be won at any time but if it gets up to £5,000 there will be a guaranteed winner.

All existing lottery players will automatically be entered into the rollover draw.

A spokesman for St Luke's Hospice said: "Over the last 31 years our care and support for our patients and their loved ones has been made possible thanks to the generosity of our kind and caring community and in these challenging times we need you more than ever."

Every penny raised in profit from the lottery supports local people who are cared for by St Luke’s.
