Who's going to be a millionaire?

Friday 02 September 2016


It could be you taking home a million pounds when the lucky balls are drawn in tonight's Jersey Hospice Care Million Pound Lottery.

A total of £1.3 million in prize money is up for grabs - a £1 million first prize, followed by £100,000, £75,000, £50,000, £25,000 and five prizes of £10,000.

The 6,000 available tickets for Jersey Hospice Care’s Million Pound Lottery, costing £300 apiece were a sell out, offering a one in 600 chance of winning at least £10,000 as well as the cool million.

The funds raised will cover the charity’s Community Bereavement Service, Day Hospice and Therapy Services for an entire year.

Jersey Hospice Care's Chief Executive Emelita Robbins said: "We are all really excited about the live draw on Friday and can’t wait to find out who our lucky winners are going to be.

"The Million Pound Lottery is our biggest fundraiser of the year. As well as giving away £1.3 million, it raises £500,000 for Jersey Hospice Care. This helps us to provide our range of services to patients with life limiting conditions and give support to their families, free of charge."

You can go along to the Royal Yacht tonight and see the balls drawn by a number of locals who have close connections with the charity including their former Chairman of Fundraising Richard Harwood who came up with the idea of the lottery ten years ago.

The entertainment and live draw starts at 17:30.
