Dorothy House Hospice Care in your community
Dorothy House Hospice Care was started in 1976 and provides compassionate caring for its local community, supporting people with life-limiting illness to live well and die well. Every day, the charity supports around 700 families affected by cancer, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and other life-limiting conditions. Dorothy House serves a community of 550,000 across Bath, north and west Wiltshire and northeast Somerset; providing a range of patient services including dedicated end of life and respite care in our in-patient unit, out-patient and day-patient services, hospice-at-home care, nurse specialists and a 24-hour advice line for professionals, patients and their families.
Over 70% of Dorothy House’s income needs to be raised from voluntary sources and the charity needs to raise over £9,000 each and every day. Profits from the Local Hospice Lottery help towards Dorothy House Hospice Care’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 Dorothy House Hospice Care to plan and develop their services for the future.
In 2020 for each £1 entry in the weekly draw Local Hospice Lottery gave an average of 68p to hospice care. Dorothy House Hospice Care is one of a number of hospices throughout Great Britain supported by Local Hospice Lottery. Local Hospice Lottery will give between 55% and 80% of profits from individuals playing in support of Dorothy House Hospice Care to Dorothy House Hospice Care.
With the help of wonderful supporters like you, this is expected to be at least £2,700,000 over five years (from April 2020)!
