£1 does amazing things

St Helena Hospice helps local people face incurable illness and bereavement, supporting them and their families, friends, and carers.

St Helena offers individual care and total support to anyone who needs it. They help local people make their own choices and live with dignity, regardless of diagnosis or personal circumstances.

On average, 11 people die each day in north east Essex. Of those who need it, only around half will have been supported by St Helena.

By playing the lottery you are helping St Helena Hospice support people like Caitlin and her family.

This means there are local people dying without the end of life care they need. More of your loved ones will die in hospital, instead of their preferred place of care, such as the Hospice or at home.

Everyone facing the end of life deserves to receive the expert and compassionate care St Helena offers. The hospice can only reach the increasing number of seriously ill people who need them with your support.

Only 27% of St Helena’s income comes from the NHS. That means 73% of the income needed to run St Helena is raised through the local community. That includes through people playing Your Hospice Lottery, giving donations, buying in St Helena shops, and leaving gifts in Wills. You can also raise vital funds for St Helena through supporting their commercial and social enterprise activities including their cleaning, arts and crafts classes and home care businesses.

St Helena Hospice needs your help now, so they can be there for the people you love.
