How it all Began

Local Hospice Lottery started life in 1996 as the ‘Farleigh Hospice Lottery’ – a way of generating a regular and dependable income to help fund the care of people affected by cancer and other life limiting illnesses across the mid Essex area.

After 11 years of running the weekly draw solely for Farleigh Hospice, the decision was made to develop the Lottery for the benefit of hospice care in other areas across the UK. Through sharing one overarching prize fund, one lottery system and an experienced and knowledgeable team – lots of expenditure could be saved and partner hospices could potentially enjoy a low risk, low input way of increasing their income.

So in 2008, the lottery became ‘Local Hospice Lottery’ and welcomed East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) as its very first partner hospice that April. It wasn’t long before our second partner, St Luke’s Hospice in Basildon, Essex, then joined us in June 2009.

Over the years Local Hospice Lottery has gone from strength to strength with a further 15 partners joining, including Highland Hospice in Inverness, Strathcarron Hospice in Falkirk, St Wilfrid’s Hospice in Eastbourne, Sobell House in Oxford and most recently, St Clare’s Hospice in Jarrow. And with conversations taking place on an ongoing basis – the future is exciting for both Local Hospice Lottery and its partner hospices. Don’t miss your chance to be part of it!!

In the last three to four years Local Hospice Lottery has established itself as the largest and fastest growing hospice lottery in the country. Our membership has increased almost four times faster than any other hospice lottery and this has been achieved through our expertise in warm and cold acquisition, and crucially in recruiting and managing teams of canvassers who are at the heart of sustainable growth in membership. To date we have raised over £15million for hospice care across the country, with £4.2 million projected for 2017/2018!
