Sidmouth Hospiscare shop one of 18 to sell charity’s lottery tickets
HOSPISCARE, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, has a new man to spearhead a major re-branding of the charity’s lottery.
Chris Routley, pictured below, has brought more than 20 years retail management experience to his new role as Hospiscare’s lottery manager.
He said: “The lottery is a great product for a great local cause but it was clear to me that modernisation was needed.
“When I joined the charity, you could only sign up as a regular player by post. My first task was to secure a remote licence so people can now sign up with one, quick phone call.”

Chris said: “It’s an excellent platform for Hospiscare. My goal is very clearly to find the most efficient and cost-effective way to encourage more players to support a lottery, which not only offers a fabulous prize, but which is also raising vital funds for local patients and their families.”
A weekly top prize of �1,000 is offered, and has been won by supporters from the Sid Valley.
Currently the lottery has 9,000 players, and more than �282,000 was made last year for the charity.
