Tuckwell Chase Lottery was established in 1998 and is a joint fundraising venture by Phyllis Tuckwell and Shooting Star Children’s Hospices to provide a regular and sustainable income for local hospice care.
Tuckwell Chase Lottery raises monies to support local hospice care – Shooting Star Children’s Hospices and Phyllis Tuckwell. After prizes and administration costs are deducted the remaining monies is donated to these two hospices.
65% of monies raised goes directly to the Hospices, 5% covers the prize fund, 10% covers administration and the remaining 20% is invested to grow the lottery for future income.
