  • What your support means to us

    The regular donations we receive from our loyal Lottery and Winter Draw players helps us to future-proof our Hospice, whilst also giving us a chance to give back to you, our amazing supporters.

    When the pandemic hit, we had to cancel or postpone our fundraising events and close our shops for months on end, but alongside our regular givers, our Lottery and prize draws gave us the financial security we needed.

    A huge THANK YOU to all of our players, past, present and future, for helping us to be there for local families.
