We are delighted to be teaming up with Weldmar Hospicecare in Dorset to expand their lottery services and support the fantastic work of this community-based palliative care service by inviting supporters to play the lottery with the exciting chance to win cash prizes and help raise essential funds.
Weldmar Hospicecare is the 12th Hospice partner to come on board with us in a bid to boost funds and achieve a good regular income via a weekly lottery draw. By joining this growing lottery community and working with other hospices in this way Weldmar can offer its supporters a fun and easy way to support their vital services and ensure all funds raised go towards hospice care.
Weldmar need to raise over £18,000 every single day to be able to deliver their current services free of charge to adults who have terminal and life-limiting illnesses as well as their families and carers, which means they are reliant on the wonderful support of their local community. Twenty four hours of care for one patient in their inpatient unit costs £340 and £21 could pay for 1 hour of one-to-one counselling for a loved one. By playing the weekly Your Hospice Lottery, supporters will be providing a valuable and regular income for Weldmar Hospicecare which will support expansion of their services to benefit more families across Dorset.
Alex Howe, Head of Lottery at Your Hospice Lottery commented “We are delighted to be welcoming Weldmar Hospicecare into our weekly lottery draw. We have 17 years’ experience of running a successful lottery operation for hospices nationally and are extremely blessed to have the opportunity to expand and work with Weldmar Hospicecare.”
He went onto say “The fact that we are owned and operated by a hospice, means that all proceeds of our lottery support hospice care.”
