More than 3,500 people have helped to raise thousands of pounds for Pontefract’s Prince of Wales Hospice by signing up to its lottery.

The scheme, launched last year, offers people across the area the chance to win up to £10,000 in a weekly draw.

Hospice bosses expect the lottery to raise £200,000 for the care centre over the next two years.

Tom Belt, hospice fundraiser, said: “We can’t thank people enough for their support of the lottery.

“One year on it has proved a huge success for the hospice.”

The scheme costs £1 per week with prizes ranging from £10 to a rollover jackpot of £10,000 and the odds of winning are three times better than winning a similar prize in the National Lottery’s Lotto draw.

Mr Belt added: “We would like to encourage as many people as possible to play the local hospice lottery.

“Every time you play our lottery you are supporting our patients and their families, as well as having the chance to win £10,000.”
