The Superdraw celebrates the 15th anniversary of the Martin House Lottery, which last year alone raised more than £320,000 for the hospice.
It has a top prize of £3,000, a £1,000 second prize, two third prizes of £500 and 20 runner-up prizes of £10.
Zara Shillito, individual giving co-ordinator at Martin House, said: “Our lottery has grown so much since we launched it in 2005, and we wanted to celebrate by holding our first Superdraw, with a chance to win a bigger jackpot.
“We hope it will also encourage more people to join our regular lottery, which is a way to support Martin House, providing us with a regular income and helping us plan our care – with the bonus of a chance to win £1,000 every week.”
Martin House cares for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions from across West, North and East Yorkshire. It reopened to planned respite care in June, following the lockdown, and has continued to support families throughout the pandemic, providing emergency care and end of life care.
The Superdraw launches on Wednesday 12th August, with the prize being drawn on Wednesday 7th October, and tickets cost £2. It is sponsored by HARIBO, meaning more of the money raised will go to supporting families.
Julie Beaman, Corporate Communications Assistant at HARIBO, said: “Without the ability to host traditional fundraising events, Martin House, like many other charities, has found itself facing a difficult time. Every bit of support makes a really valuable difference right now – which is why we are proud to be continuing to work in partnership with the team, by sponsoring their first ever Superdraw.
“Taking part is simple and there are some impressive prizes on offer. But, most importantly, every penny raised will help Martin House to continue its fantastic work, providing vital care for babies, children and young people at a time when they need it the most.”
Tickets can be bought online at www.martinhouse.org.uk/superdraw. Players have to be over 18 to enter and can buy up to 50 tickets, and tickets have to be bought by Monday 28th September to be entered into the draw.
