Important update about the Rossendale Hospice Lottery
Despite our best efforts, unfortunately the latest national lockdown restrictions have affected our lottery, resulting in a temporary prize fund reduction. This is due to individuals’ incomes tightening and the inability of our lottery provider to canvas membership as would usually be carried out under normal circumstances. Cash collections have had to be paused and many corporate supporters are temporarily closed. All of this has unfortunately impacted the size of the prize fund pot. The main change is a reduction in second, third and fourth prizes and the removal of a fifth prize as can be seen below. Please note that these figures will change weekly if there is a rollover.
The new temporary prize fund will commence from the 10th February 2021 for the duration of the latest national lockdown.
We regret that we are in this position so soon into launching our lottery but these are circumstances out of our control. We expect our prize fund pot to return to normal once we move out of lockdown. We would like to thank you for your continued support with our lottery, especially during this difficult time. While you still stand a chance of winning some cash prizes, you are supporting us to continue providing vital care to people who need it the most in Rossendale.
Please get in touch if you’d like further information or to discuss your membership.
