Rowcroft Hopsice has been running a lottery for over 14 years and in that time it has become popular.
The lottery’s popularity doesn’t just exist within Rowcroft but also among the wider South Devon Community.
In 2018 the lottery has reached a major milestone, raising over £5 million in funds since the beginning of 2004.
It is thanks to the continuous support from the local community who play the lottery and help, that Rowcroft is able to provide an invaluable source of income for the hospice.
A small amount makes a big difference
Ann Harrington, reception volunteer on the Inpatient Unit has been playing the lottery for over 8 years and said:
It’s a small amount to give and you know where the money is going and you can see how it is being spent. I have also had two wins which feels very gratifying!
All of the funds that have been raised via the lottery are helping make every day the best day possible for patients with life-limiting illnesses.
The £5,000,000 raised over the past 14 years has funded care for over 1,130 Rowcroft Inpatients.
Such funding would not of been possible if it wasn’t for the kindness and generosity of the Rowcroft Lottery Players.
Julie Fletcher, Lottery, Co-Ordinator said:
It is thanks to the regular support from the community of South Devon that have made this possible. It’s an incredible achievement and we are all so proud of the success.”
We would like to thank everyone who takes part, week after week. Your support is extremely valuable to our hospice.
