Hospices on average receive 34% of their funding from the government, but the actual statutory figure varies across the country. It is the generosity of their supporters and the communities they serve that makes the difference to help hospices continue to provide care for patients and support for loved ones.
Your Hospice Lottery provides a valuable, regular income to help run each hospice and we could not do this without our loyal players.
