Changes to the Hospice Lottery

We are making some changes to our Hospice Lottery. Thank you to everyone who has supported the joint St Gemma’s and Wheatfields Hospices Lottery over the years.


If you have played the St Gemma’s and Wheatfields Hospices Lottery through cash collection

Unfortunately we are no longer able to offer a cash collection service. Your current cash collections for entry into the St Gemma’s & Wheatfields Hospices Lottery will cease prior to the last draw of this lottery on 26th January 2018 and you will continue to play this lottery until your credit expires.

You will receive a letter explaining everything from one of the two Hospices, depending on the postcode area your live in. It will offer you the opportunity to continue supporting the Hospice in your area. If you would prefer to support the other Hospice, then please contact them directly.

If you currently play the St Gemma’s and Wheatfields Hospices Lottery via the bank

You will shortly receive a letter explaining some changes but the good news is that if you subscribe by standing order, direct debit cheque or credit card you do not need to take any action.

The planned changes will go live from the 3rd February 2018. We’ve teamed up with the Unity Lottery to allow us to generate even more profit for the Hospices as well as giving you a great chance to win prizes.

The lottery will still be drawn every week and still cost £1 to enter, and if you win your prize will be sent directly to you, the same as it is now.

Both Hospices are continually reviewing ways to improve fundraising activities to maximise the amount of money raised to support patient care. This is especially important as we look to develop our services for the people of Leeds.

With many thanks for your generosity and continued support of our caring work which makes such a difference to the people of Leeds and beyond.
