Join the lottery

John Taylor Hospice has teamed up with Your Hospice Lottery to bring our supporters a new weekly draw.

Joining our lottery not only gives you the chance of winning a range of cash prizes - it also helps John Taylor continue to provide vital services for local families.

It costs £1 per number per week to join – and each player could win the weekly top prize of £1,000 or even a rollover of up to £10,000.

Administered by St Helena Hospice in Colchester, Your Hospice Lottery brings together a group of hospices from across the country in the combined competition.

Launched in January 2017, the John Taylor and Your Hospice Lottery has guaranteed weekly prizes of:

1st prize of £1,000, 2nd prize of £100, four winners of £25 and 130 prizes of £10.

The rollover prize is selected from random numbers and, if it’s not won, the total increases every week by £250 to a maximum of £10,000.        

How to play:

  • One chance in our weekly draw is £1.
  • The lottery computer allocates a unique number for each chance.
  • No claim is necessary as the winning cheques are automatically sent by post after the draw but you can check your numbers on the Your Hospice Lottery website here.
