Why join the Ayrshire Hospice Lottery?

The Ayrshire Hospice Lottery provides a regular source of income to run our hospice services which deliver exceptional care for Ayrshire's patients and families.  It costs around £22,000 per day to run the hospice and your £1 per week can really make a difference.  Whether it's eating a favourite food, seeing a beloved pet or enabling a patient to marry the love of their life, our specialist teams are dedicated to making today matter.

Which prizes could I win?

Every Friday members have a chance to win one of the 72 prizes from the guaranteed weekly prize fund. First prize is £1,000, second prize is £100 and there are seventy prizes of £10. You'll also be automatically entered into our seasonal Super Draws where you could win up to £5,000.

How does it work?

It costs only £1 per week to enter the Ayrshire Hospice lottery but your £1 can really make a difference. When you register as a member your details are entered into our lottery system and as long as you have paid your £1 for that week, your unique number will be entered into our Friday draw. If you are a lucky winner, the cheque will be sent to you by post.

Where does my money go?

In 2021, £696,328.00 was raised from ticket sales in our weekly lottery and our seasonal Super Draw, with 19.61% being spent on prizes, 16.57% spent on expenses and 63.82% used to provide care for people with life limiting illness across Ayrshire - this translated to a fantastic £444,398.59!  (based on the lottery submissions made by Ayrshire Hospice to the Gambling Commission, during the 2021 calendar year).
