Where your money goes

Your Hospice Lottery is just one of the ways people can be involved with to raise money for our hospice partners. You can find out about each hospice we support by clicking the Hospices tab.

  • Your Hospice Lottery exists only to raise funds for hospice care
  • On average, 65% of Your Hospice Lottery income goes towards hospice care, such as visits to patients’ homes by specialist nurses who are experts in symptom and pain control; counselling for patients and bereavement support for loved ones; and physiotherapy to help patients remain as independent as possible- the rest goes towards the costs of running the draw and prize fund. (The percentage each hospice receives does vary- a minimum of 20p in every £1 played goes towards your chosen hospice)
  • Your Hospice Lottery is run by St Helena, a hospice charity based in Colchester and also works with other hospices to keep costs down, but you choose which hospice you wish to support with your membership
  • St Helena receives a small income towards helping people face incurable illness from each membership for administering the lottery
  • Thanks to our fantastic members, the lottery has raised over £11 million for hospice care, which makes a massive difference to people living with life limiting and life threatening conditions

Fundraising and donations help to provide essential hospice care such as:

£12.50 = Helps a child create a memory box in honour of their loved one

£21 = One hour of vital one-to-one nursing support

£30 = One session of counselling for a patient

£30 = Occupational Therapy to help a patient stay as independent as possible

£45 = Encourages a patient to express emotions through a music therapy session

£100 = Visit from a community nurse to a patient’s home
