St Joseph’s Hospice
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.

Support is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and they currently support more than 6,000 local people every year.
How playing the Local Hospice Lottery helps St Joseph’s Hospice
Although St Joseph’s receives some statutory funding, they 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 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 St Joseph’s Hospice to St Joseph’s Hospice. This is expected to be at least £400,000 over five years from April 2022.
