How it all began

Local Hospice Lottery began life in 1996 as Farleigh Hospice’s own lottery, a way of generating a regular and reliable income to help fund hospice care across mid Essex. After eleven years of running the weekly draw, the decision was made to develop the Lottery for the benefit of hospice care in other areas across Great Britain.

Today, Local Hospice Lottery operates a society lottery that benefits a number of hospices (adults and children’s) from the Highlands of Scotland to the south coast of England, and remains a wholly owned subsidiary of Farleigh Hospice. We have built our collaborative model with a thorough understanding of the needs of individual hospices at our heart and are hospice people ourselves. The hospices partners we currently work with are listed under ‘Hospices Supported’.

In the last 8+ years, Local Hospice Lottery has established itself as the largest and fastest growing hospice lottery in the country, increasing turnover from £925,000 in 2011/12, to £8.9 million in 2019/20. The annual contribution to hospice care has also increased substantially over this time, with a record £5.5 million to be donated in 19/20. Our membership has increased faster than any other hospice lottery through our expertise in warm and cold mail acquisition and specifically in recruiting and managing our own national team of face-to-face fundraisers who have been at the heart of sustainable growth in membership.

Our significant contribution to hospice care has been widely recognised by external bodies such as The Lotteries Council, who named Local Hospice Lottery as ‘Lottery Operator of the Year’ in April 2018. We were a finalist for the 2020 and 2017 Institute of Fundraising Awards in the ‘Most Committed Company to the Sector’ Category alongside being shortlisted in the 2014 & 2017 Third Sector Awards in the ‘Enterprise’ Category.
