The Prince of Wales 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 The Prince of Wales Hospice can rely on. So THANK YOU!
The Prince of Wales Hospice cares for and supports patients with life-limiting illness and their families. They care for local people within the ‘Five Towns’ community, offering round-the-clock care.
The Hospice helps nearly 1,000 local people of all ages each year and they don’t just treat patients with cancer either. They care for patients with a wide range of life-limiting illnesses with the majority of patients returning home after their symptoms have been managed.
Their services include:
- Lymphoedema Clinic
- Therapy Services
- Support for family & carers
How playing the Local Hospice Lottery helps The Prince of Wales Hospice
While all of the Hospice’s care is free to all of their patients, it is not free to provide. It can be difficult to raise the funds they need to continue to make a difference and that is why supporters like you are so important. Profits from the Local Hospice Lottery help towards The Prince of Wales 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 Prince of Wales Hospice to plan and develop their services for the future.
In 2021, £10.6 million was raised from ticket sales, with 3% spent on prizes, 12% spent on administration and management and 18% reinvested to recruit new lottery members. The remaining 67% was given to hospice care – an amazing total of £7.14 million.
Local Hospice Lottery will give between 60% and 80% of profits from individuals playing in support of The Prince of Wales Hospice to The Prince of Wales Hospice. This is expected to be at least £700,000 over five years from April 2022.
