The charity was established in 2008 as Yare Hospice Care, becoming East Coast Hospice in 2009, with the aim of improving end of life care in the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area; with a vision and goal to build an independent hospice.
Planning permission was received in 2012, fundraising took off in 2013 and now all pre-build works have been completed and paid for. They have planning in perpetuity and are ‘spade-to-soil’ ready. They are now raising the funds to get the diggers on site to build the hospice.
They have a chain of charity shops and an eBay store raising funds for the build, alongside fundraising, events, and collecting pots supported by businesses and the community.
Donations and pledges can be made to the building of the hospice or designated to help fund the specialist equipment that will be required to kit out the hospice once it has been built.
From your very first game, you will help East Coast Hospice raise vital funds that will support people in need in the local community. Below are some key figures:
Registered Charity Number: 1129631
Each entry to the draw costs £1. Our draws are run every week of the year, usually on a Friday. You can either set up a membership to provide your chosen hospice with a regular and reliable income, every week of the year, or you can play as and when you want to, whatever suits you best!
Lottery fundraising is a really easy and fun way to provide hospices with an income that they can plan for the future with. You need to be 18 or over and living in Great Britain to take part.

Please call us if you would rather set your lottery membership up over the phone 0800 285 1390.
When you join, we will allocate you with a lottery play number. Our draws are randomly drawn each Friday (with exception when this is a Bank Holiday, when it will take place the working day prior). You don’t need to check the results every week, although you can if you want to. If you win, we will contact you to let you know. If we have your email, your prize winnings will automatically go into your Your Hospice Lottery account; where you can then request a withdrawal, after which monies are then transferred into your bank account, or if you don’t have an email with us, a letter and cheque will be sent via post (please make sure that we have your up to date address).
|PLUS a rollover of £500 each week||up to a maximum of £25,000!|
