St Joseph’s Hospice

It has always been extremely important to support our local hospices, but today it is more important than ever before. Because of your weekly £1s, we are still running our weekly draw and able to generate a regular and reliable income that St Joseph’s Hospice can rely on. So THANK YOU!

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.

• Complementary therapies for pain and stress relief
• Practical Advice and Support
• Counselling and Bereavement Support
• Community Services and Social Groups

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.

Since 1997 Local Hospice Lottery has contributed in excess of £37 million to hospice care. 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. This is expected to be at least £400,000 over five years from April 2020.
