St Joseph's Hospice in your community
St Joseph’s Hospice has been at the heart of East London since 1905, providing care to the local community, helping local people affected by life-limiting and terminal illness.
Being diagnosed with a terminal illness can be devastating, turning your world upside down, affecting you and those around you. What becomes important is the time you have left. St Joseph’s Hospice provides the very best end of life and respite care to patients and provides care and support to families to cope with terminal illness and bereavement.
Each year, the hospice supports more than 6,000 local people and have support available 24 hours a day, 365 days a week.
Despite St Joseph’s receiving some statutory funding from the NHS, they still need to raise around £19,000 every day to be able to provide their services. Profits from the Local Hospice Lottery help towards St Joseph’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 the Hospice 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. St Joseph’s Hospice 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 St Joseph’s Hospice to St Joseph’s Hospice.
With the help of wonderful supporters like you, this is expected to be at least £400,000 over five years (from April 2020)!
