Your Hospice Lottery announces partnership with the Hospice Quality Partnership
Your Hospice Lottery has this week joined forces with the Hospice Quality Partnership (HQP) to become the first HQP partner to actually become a supplier to HQP partner hospices.
The HQP is an innovative, social enterprise with partner hospices from across the UK, set up to help hospices of all sizes save money by improving procurement, reducing operating costs and sharing data for best practice, ensuring funds go further to where they are needed the most – looking after patients and families’ needs.
As a lottery provider, Your Hospice Lottery’s offering is a unique one as they are the first HQP Hospice partner to also become a supplier which is in addition to the financial benefit they can bring to a hospice from its existing lottery. As a hospice supplier, all proceeds stay within the hospice sector, there is no financial commitment to join and no resource required from the hospice to join the offer.
Alex Howe, Head of Lottery at Your Hospice Lottery, explains: “What is special about our offering is that because we are owned and operated by St Helena, a hospice charity based in Colchester, it means that not only can we bring a fantastic lottery product offering to all HQP partner hospices, but that by working with us, hospices can be assured that all profits from the lottery will go back to the hospice sector.
He went on to say “There are a lot of commercial firms out there with lottery product offerings, we are a charity and therefore all of our profits go back to charity, we also really understand how important fundraising is to local hospices and share their ethos. It was an absolute no brainer for us to work with the HQP as we share the same ethos - hospices working together to achieve better hospice care to those who need it the most.”
Liz Reynolds, Partnership Manager at the Hospice Quality Partnership commented “We have been talking to Your Hospice Lottery for a while now and are delighted to have them on board with the Hospice Quality Partnership. Your Hospice Lottery offer a unique lottery offering and we would encourage our hospice members to see what they have to offer as potentially there could be substantial savings to your lottery operation. The fact that a hospice is providing a service to other hospices means that all proceeds will stay in this sector and we can all work smarter, with more income going to hospice care ultimately.”
Hospices from across the UK will be getting together for the annual Hospice UK Conference in Telford on 27-28th November 2018. There will be an opportunity for hospice staff to talk to the award winning team at Your Hospice Lottery about how the lottery can significantly increase hospice income, working for mutual benefit to raise vital funds to support people in need of hospice services. Hospices can take part in a free lottery health check with Your Hospice Lottery via this link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/KLWR35W and they will automatically be entered into a free prize draw to win £100 Amazon vouchers for their hospice. Entries close on Friday 30th November and the winning hospice will be drawn at random on Monday 3rd December 2018.
