How playing the Local Hospice Lottery helps EACH
For both the families who are accessing care, and those who have been bereaved, EACH is a lifeline at an unimaginably difficult time. They rely on voluntary donations for the majority of their income and need to raise almost £6 million to deliver their services this year – £16,000 a day, every day of the year.
Profits from the Local Hospice Lottery help towards EACH’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 EACH to plan and develop their services for the future.
EACH 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 EACH to EACH. This is expected to be at least £1,000,000 over four years from April 2016. For each £1 entry in the weekly draw Local Hospice Lottery gives an average of 60p to hospice care.
