Weekly Prize Draw

Weekly Prize Draw - sign up - St Margaret's Hospice Care Somerset

The impact of your ticket

Playing our Weekly Prize Draw is your chance to make a difference to patients and families facing a life-limiting illness in Somerset. Every ticket counts – and your £1 each week will help us to deliver compassionate care and vital support to those who need it.

Together, our amazing community of Prize Draw players raise an incredible £7,600 every single week. That could pay for someone to receive 24/7 care on our In-Patient Unit for a whole week.

So when you join our Weekly Prize Draw, you know that you’ll be joining something special. Joining an amazing community of supporters who collectively enable us to provide care, compassion and comfort to individuals and their loved ones, when they need it most.

This week's Rollover Prize is £9,750

Our Weekly Prize Draw takes place every Friday, and is a fun and exciting way to support St Margaret’s Hospice. Not only will you be helping to fund vital hospice care in Somerset, but you'll also have a great chance to win one of our 28 cash prizes every week.

This includes our Rollover prize which, if not won, increases by £250 every week (*up to £10,000). This week’s rollover currently stands at an impressive £9,750! So why not join our growing community of Weekly Prize Draw players and be in with your chance of winning big.

The draw takes place every Friday (we’ll always give advance notice if the draw day changes) and each chance costs just £1. The first prize is £1,000 with other cash prizes up for grabs every week. Each prize will be won every week apart from our rollover prize. 

Our lottery software randomly produces the outcome of the draw using a Random Number Generator and a winning number can only be selected once in the same draw. When we run the draw for our 3rd prize (rollover) our lottery software reduces the likelihood of winning that prize. If the rollover is not won the prize money is rolled-over to the next draw.

Every ticket purchased has 1 in 452 chance of winning one of our weekly prizes (information based on the average number of players in draws between January 2022 to December 2022).
The exact chance of winning varies each week depending on the number of tickets sold.

Frequently asked questions

You will be entered into the draw upon receipt of your first payment, and then every draw as long as you have sufficient credit in your Weekly Prize Draw account. Our lottery software randomly produces the outcome of the draw using a Random Number Generator and a winning number can only be selected once in the same draw.

All prizes are guaranteed to be won each week with the exception of the rollover prize. When we run the draw for our 3rd prize (rollover) our lottery software reduces the likelihood of winning that prize. If the rollover is not won the prize money is rolled-over to the next draw and the 3rd prize increases by £250. If the rollover reaches £10,000 we guarantee the prize will be won in that week’s draw.
