Weldmar Hospicecare becomes 12th partner for Your Hospice Lottery

Categories: Community Engagement.

Weldmar Hospicecare in Dorset is the latest hospice to partner with Your Hospice Lottery.

The charity is the 12th hospice to join forces with Your Hospice Lottery to help boost their income. Matt Smith, Director of Fundraising and Marketing at Weldmar Hospicecare explains their decision to partner with them:

“We decided to work with Your Hospice Lottery because we need to maximise our lottery income and they are best placed to do just that. We are looking forward to working with our new lottery providers to not only expand the opportunities for our supporters to win, but also to raise the funds required to continue providing vital care to our patients and their loved ones across Dorset.”

Founded in 2001 by St Helena Hospice in Essex, Your Hospice Lottery has raised over £9million for hospice care to date thanks to its weekly lottery draws. In July this year they received the National Fundraising Award for Most Innovative Fundraising Campaign.

Supporters can play for £1 per number per week, and there are over 130 weekly cash prizes. There is also a rollover jackpot which if not won increases by £250 each week up to a maximum of £10,000.

Commenting on working with Weldmar Hospicecare, Alex Howe, Head of Lottery said:

“We are delighted to be welcoming Weldmar Hospicecare into our weekly lottery draw. We have 17 years’ experience of running a successful lottery operation for hospices nationally and are extremely blessed to have the opportunity to expand and work with Weldmar Hospicecare.

“The fact that we are owned and operated by a hospice, means that all proceeds of our lottery support hospice care.”
