Peace Hospice Care
Peace Hospice Care is dedicated to improving the quality of life for patients, families and carers facing a life-limiting illness across Hertfordshire. The Hospice provides support at end of life, but the majority of their work focuses on supporting those with life-limiting illnesses who have many more years to live.
Peace Hospice currently cares for over 1,500 patients every year, whilst also supporting their families through what is inevitably a very difficult time.
• Inpatient Care
• Counselling Services
• Community Services (such as Hospice at Home)
• Rehabilitation and Wellbeing Groups (which include rehabilitation, creative and complimentary therapies)
How playing the Local Hospice Lottery helps Peace Hospice Care
All of the Hospice’s services are given completely free of charge and this simply would not be possible without the ongoing generosity and goodwill of the community it serves. Every year they need to raise £5 million to continue to run and deliver their specialist services across Hertfordshire.
Profits from the Local Hospice Lottery help towards Peace 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 Peace Hospice Care to plan and develop their services for the future.
In 2022, £11.9 million was raised from tickets purchased by players supporting all participating hospices, with 3% spent on prizes, 12% spent on administration and management and 19% reinvested to recruit new lottery players. The remaining 66% was given to hospice care – an amazing total of £7.8 million.
Local Hospice Lottery will give between 60% and 80% of profits from individuals playing in support of Peace Hospice Care to Peace Hospice Care. This is expected to be at least £1,000,000 over five years from April 2022.
