A charity hospice will be celebrating the relaunch of their community lottery this summer by holding a shop window competition in all nine stores.

Shop volunteers at St Clare’s Hospice’s charity shops across west Essex and east Hertfordshire will create an eye-catching lottery themed display to reflect the Hastingwood-based charities makeover.

As of spring 2019, St Clare’s Lottery boasted more than 15,000 weekly entries, which last year helped to raise over £400,000 for the hospice.

“Our lovely lottery simply needed a refresh,” said Paula Fogg, lottery manager at St Clare Hospice. “As the lottery grows each and every year, we’re consistently reminded of the bright and beautiful local community who support St Clare – so we wanted our new brand to represent that.

“On Monday, June 10, each of our nine shops will host a colourful, Lottery-inspired window display for the week

“We’re really looking forward to seeing what they do, so keep your eyes peeled in the local area.”

The major revamp will also tie in with the 20th anniversary since the St Clare Hospice launched

With the catchy slogan, ‘Love our Lottery, Care for St Clare,’ the hospice hopes to increase income over the next year by being more visible within the community.

Several volunteers will be out on the streets encouraging people to sign up for a chance to win every week costing £1 per entry.

Mrs Fogg explains: “Playing the St Clare Lottery is a really fun way to support the hospice, and it means that you’re in with a chance of winning one of 24 prizes every single week.

“We dish out more than £1,300 in prizes each week, and that’s not to mention our Rollover which can get up to £10,000 with £200 being added to the ‘pot’ every week.

“So, whilst you support your local Hospice in a really powerful way, you’re also in with a chance of winning the jackpot.”
