Thank you for your support.
Each year it costs over £5million to provide the specialist care we offer to our patients at our hospices Mount Edgcumbe in St Austell and St Julias’s in Hayle and to patients in the Cornish communities.
Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS commissioners.
The other 80% (£4million) is raised by the people of Cornwall, people like you.
The Cornwall Hospice Care Lottery returns all its profits to the charity Cornwall Hospice Care. Last year ending March 2018 this amounted to £268,731 (49%) of it’s annual income.
Every £1 chance sold means a bigger donation to the charity
Cornwall Hospice Care’s lottery celebrates reaching 10,000 lottery lines in its weekly draw!
The Cornwall Hospice Care lottery team are celebrating the news that they’ve reached a milestone of 10,000 lottery lines being played each week. The 10,000th line of numbers belongs to Amanda Hemsley from Truro. Amanda was recruited by Luke Haynes, one of two lottery representatives who has been working for the Cornish charity for just over 2 years, working door to door asking people to sign up.
Mum of four, Amanda said “it’s a very good cause, not just end of life care. When Luke knocked on the door the kids were play fighting, laughing and joking around. He was really polite, not pushy at all, I was happy to join and for only a small monthly amount I know I’m helping a local cause.
Sarah Vincent, Lottery Manager spoke of reaching the 10,000 goal; “we are so excited to reach our goal to have 10,000 lines in each weekly draw. We know our prizes are not quite in the same league as the national lottery, although our £200 Rollover prize has reached the maximum of £10,000 once before and our £1,000 weekly top prize never fails to put massive smiles on the winner’s faces every Friday. You could also win our £50 prize or one of 50 £5 prizes, it’s all part of the fun. We want to get many more lottery players as well! Every £1 chance sold means a bigger donation to the charity”.
It costs £5.15 million a year to provide the specialist care given and last year alone lottery players helped to fund an incredible £268,731 of carePlay now and start to help fund the care
