How playing the Local Hospice Lottery helps St Clare’s Hospice
All of the Hospice’s services are given completely free of charge and delivered by a team of highly skilled specialists. This is only made possible through the ongoing generosity and goodwill of the community it serves. St. Clare’s Hospice needs to raise over £5,000 every day to keep its essential services running.
Profits from the Local Hospice Lottery help towards St Clare’s Hospice’s running costs and provides a regular stream of income which they can rely on receiving, each and every month. Not only does this help to provide essential care and support to local families right now, it also enables St Clare’s Hospice to plan and develop their services for the future.
St Clare’s Hospice is one of a number of hospices throughout Great Britain supported by Local Hospice Lottery and Local Hospice Lottery will give between 50% and 80% of profits from individuals playing in support of St Clare’s Hospice to St Clare’s Hospice. This is expected to be at least £350,000 over five years from November 2017. For each £1 entry in the weekly draw Local Hospice Lottery gives an average of 60p to hospice care.
