Help support the work of your health service and hospitals, and you could win a £25,000 prize – that’s the attractive offer from a lottery set-up which is now linked to the East & North Herts Hospitals Charity.

The Unity Lottery system differs from other national lottery organisations in two important ways – you get to choose who benefits from your stake money and half of what you stake goes to good causes, compared to the 28 per cent allocated by the government’s Lotto scheme.

The East & North Herts Hospitals Charity – which raises funds for projects at Stevenage’s Lister Hospital – has teamed up with Sterling Lotteries to become part of the Unity sceheme, which pays out thousands of pounds in prizes every week and is already helping more than 250 charities raise money across the country.

Players can stake as little as £1 every week, and each stake gets them a unique six digit number. If your number comes up, you’re a winner – it’s as simple as that.

You could win £5, but the top prize is £25,000.

As well as the Lister, the charity supports and enhances the care given at Mount Vernon, Hertford and the new QEII hospitals by investing in extra equipment, facilities and research.

Recent projects funded by the charity include the new children’s playroom at Stevenage, as well as a garden refurbishment at the Macmillan Cancer Centre also based on the Corey’s Mill Lane site.
