Dove House’s Your Charity Lottery turns 25

Launched by Dove House Hospice in 1996, Your Charity Lottery has raised a staggering £8.6 million to date – money that goes directly back into patient care.

Normally making £7,000 per week, the latest figures show that Dove House’s Your Charity Lottery is currently producing £10,000 per week. This has come at a time when the hospice has relied on a steady income to ensure that it remains open throughout each lockdown.

Did you know that by playing the lottery each week, you are helping a nurse spend time with a patient who has just arrived and needs some reassurance when settling in? Did you know that by continuing to support the hospice lottery, you are helping to make hospice and palliative care available to everyone in the community that needs it?

There are so many reasons to play Your Charity Lottery, it may also be your way of giving back when Dove House supported you. Whatever your reason, it all helps to sustain the hospice in your community. Everyone at Dove House is extremely thankful for your support over the last 25 years and hopes you will continue to show your support in this way for years to come.

Laura Sadler, Head of Fundraising at Dove House, had this to say: “I would like to say a huge and heartfelt thank you to players past and present from within the community who have helped to achieve this amazing amount and such a valuable sustainable income source for the hospice.

“We couldn’t have made it without you. By playing the lottery each week, you have contributed in helping us survive and flourish. What a year to turn 25 but a year when so many people have shown their support in playing Your Charity Lottery. To mark the occasion, an additional prize each month will be up for grabs, with the first one being £250 in the drawn on Friday 4 June. Thank you again, you are all amazing!”
