Those not lucky enough to win the jackpot, still have the chance of taking home a prize with the second prize standing at £1,000 and the third prize being a hotel break for two.
Costing £1, the same as a national lotto ticket, the odds of winning the jackpot are considerably better than the national game and with all money raised going towards the hospice, means the money stays local.
This year’s draw is taking place on Friday 16 September and Anna Ross, lottery manager at St Peter’s Hospice is hoping people from across the city will support the charity and buy a ticket in time.
Anna said: “We are very excited to introduce the cash draw this year. In this economic climate everyone needs a little extra and it’s going to be a fantastic prize for the lucky winner.
“The great thing about the St. Peter’s Hospice Super Draw is that all money raised stays within the local area, helping people in the local community.
“There is also a far greater chance of winning than if you took part playing some of the national games. For example the odds of winning £5,000 with the National Lottery Thunderball are one in 620,046!
“It would be fantastic if the whole population of Bristol, which stands at about 433,100, bought a ticket however we realise that this is probably not going to happen and again puts into perspective how good this Super Draw really is.
St Peter’s Hospice shop manager Toni Grey added: “Money raised from the Super Draw is vital and goes towards caring for adults with incurable illnesses. All you need to do is go to your local St. Peter’s Hospice shop and buy a ticket.
“For just £1 you could win enough for a family holiday or a new car and you’d be doing something great for a local charity. We have 47 shops around the city so there really is no excuse not to join in!”
As Bristol’s only adult hospice St Peter’s Hospice cares for local people with incurable diseases, giving them a better quality of life. All care is provided free of charge but the NHS contribute just 23% of the £6 million needed to run the hospice yearly, meaning events like the Super Draw are essential.
Last year the hospice cared for 2,000 patients in the region and supported over 6,000 family members, including children.
