Hospice costs and Lottery players contribution to care
It costs £5.3 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our patients and their families at our two hospices Mount Edgcumbe in St Austell and St Julias’s in Hayle, in the acute hospital, in care homes and in the Cornish communities.
Only 19.1% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS commissioners who last year gave us £1 million.
Our amazing supporters raise the other 80.9% (£4.3 million), thank you.
The Cornwall Hospice Care Lottery returns all its profits to the charity Cornwall Hospice Care. Last year ending March 2020 this amounted to £387,112 (57%) of it’s annual income.
Our expenses total £292,937 include:
General expenses: 17%
During this year our commitment in the investment in marketing to grow the number of players saw an increase in contribution to Cornwall Hospice Care of £78,412 (25%)
Supporters of the Cornwall Hospice Care Lottery make a vital contribution to the cost of care.
Thank you for your support.
