Hospice lottery joins forces with Hospice Quality Partnership

Categories: People & Places.

Your Hospice Lottery has joined forces with the Hospice Quality Partnership (HQP), becoming their first partner to also be a supplier to HQP partner hospices.

The HQP is a social enterprise with partner hospices from across the UK that was set up to help hospices of all sizes save money by improving procurement, reducing operating costs and sharing data for best practice, making sure funds go further to where they are needed the most – looking after patients and families’ needs.

Your Hospice Lottery is owned and operated by St Helena, a hospice based in Essex, and the weekly draws currently raise money for 12 hospices throughout England. To date the lottery has raised more than £11 million.

With this partnership they become the first HQP Hospice partner to also become a supplier, which is in addition to the financial benefit they can bring to a hospice from its existing lottery. As a hospice supplier, all proceeds stay within the hospice sector, there is no financial commitment to join and no resource required from the hospice to join the offer.

Alex Howe, Head of Lottery at Your Hospice Lottery, explains:

  “There are a lot of commercial firms out there with  lottery product offerings, we are a charity and therefore all of our profits go back to charity, we also really understand how important fundraising is to local hospices and share their ethos. It was an absolute no-brainer for us to work with the HQP as we share the same ethos – hospices working together to achieve better hospice care to those who need it the most.”

Liz Reynolds, Partnership Manager at the Hospice Quality Partnership commented:

“We have been talking to Your Hospice Lottery for a while now and are delighted to have them on board with the Hospice Quality Partnership. Your Hospice Lottery offer a unique lottery offering and we would encourage our hospice members to see what they have to offer as potentially there could be substantial savings to your lottery operation.

“The fact that a hospice is providing a service to other hospices means that all proceeds will stay in this sector and we can all work smarter, with more income going to hospice care ultimately.”
