The more people that join, the more we receive!

Local Hospice Lottery is a hospice owned collaboration.

By sharing one prize fund and set of administration costs, players can benefit from a larger prize fund (the biggest of any hospice lottery!) and more money can be raised for Helen & Douglas House than if we ran our own lottery.

Further detail about prizes and how the Lottery works is available here.

Helen & Douglas House 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 Helen & Douglas House to Helen & Douglas House. This is expected to be at least £1,000,000 over five years from April 2020.

For each £1 entry in the weekly draw Local Hospice Lottery gives an average of 60p to hospice care. A full list of the hospices supported, along with Terms and Conditions, can be seen on the Local Hospice Lottery website or provided on request from ‘Freepost Local Hospice Lottery’.

To help to recruit players, a team of paid fundraisers will be working in the local area both door-to-door and at venues. Each member of the team will be wearing a uniform and will have a Local Hospice Lottery photo identity card with them. You can view members of the team on the Local Hospice Lottery website by clicking here. All authorised Fundraisers are paid by Local Hospice Lottery Ltd.
