Mark continues his Mum's LOROS Lottery number in her memory

Published on 27th September 2018

The LOROS Lottery has been running for 22 years and in that time the players have raised over £12,000,000 for the Hospice. This amount could pay for a fantastic 22,857 days inpatient care.

Over the past 22 years we know LOROS Lottery players have joined for all sorts of reasons but playing in memory of a loved one is why 75% of you join the LOROS Lottery.

Mark, a LOROS Lottery player met with us to talk about why he plays.

“I play the LOROS Lottery in memory of my Mum, Eileen.

Mum passed away in April 2018 and previous to that played the lottery for nearly 20 years.

It was lovely to know that I could continue playing her number and that it could be in her memory.

Taking over the number was easy and I know my Mum would be happy that as a family we continue to support such a great needed local charity.”

The LOROS Lottery takes place every single week with a top prize of £2000 followed by other cash prizes of £200, £150, £100, £50 and 50 £10’s. If you win, we take care of everything including your winners cheque – they’re sent out automatically.

By playing the LOROS Lottery for a year, you could pay for two complementary therapy sessions for our patients, their families or carers. If you wanted to double your chances and have two numbers, over that year you could pay for four hours of care for an inpatient.
