KEMP HOSPICE SET TO BOOST FUNDS THROUGH NEW LOTTERY PROVIDER

Home / News & Opportunities / Member News

Date: 14/10/2016

KEMP Hospice has teamed up with Your Hospice Lottery to bring supporters a new weekly lottery draw which not only offers players the exciting chance to win cash prizes but also raises vital funds for hospice care.

For just £1 per entry to the draw each week, lottery members have the chance to win one of 111 guaranteed prizes ranging from £10 to £1,000, plus the exciting addition of a rollover jackpot, which if not won goes up by £250 each week, up to an amazing £10,000!
 
Terry Osborn, CEO of KEMP Hospice commented “Thank you for joining Your Hospice Lottery, your support not only gives you the chance to win up to £10,000 but all of the profits generated will enable more people to benefit from personalised care at what is probably their time of greatest need”
“KEMP receives around 30% of its cost of providing vital services for local people from the NHS with the remainder being generously provided by our local community and, thanks to your support, we will continue to grow and develop and, on behalf of the 1,000 local people you will enable us to help this year alone can I just say a heartfelt and huge thank you”
 
Alex Howe, Head of Lottery at Your Hospice Lottery commented “We are delighted to be able to announce that we will be providing the lottery service for KEMP Hospice, and we really hope that we can help them raise as much as possible to support the vital services of the hospice”
 
From the very first entry into the Your Hospice Lottery draw, members are helping KEMP Hospice to support the local community of Wyre Forest in providing the district’s only specialist nurse supported day hospice for seriously ill people, as well as outpatient clinics and a dedicated hospice at home team. From symptom control, complementary therapy, relaxation classes and hairdressing, through to spiritual care, they aim to address a multitude of patient needs.   
 
Friendly fundraisers from the lottery team will be out and about in the Wyre Forest area talking to people about this fun and easy way to raise money for KEMP Hospice. You can either join up with one of our fundraisers or online by visiting our website, yourhospicelottery.org.uk. All of our fundraisers will be carrying photo I.D. at all times but if you have a visit from one of the team and would like to check their identity for reassurance, please do visit our website or telephone the lottery office on 0800 285 1390 where we will be more than happy to help you.
 
Members can join from now onwards in time for the first lottery draw which will be held on Friday 18th November.
 
Your Hospice Lottery is run by St Helena Hospice in Colchester and raises money for other hospices but players choose which hospice to support with their membership. By working in collaboration with the other hospices, overheads and costs are kept to a minimum so more funds can be used to support children and their families.
 
To join in this new way to fundraise for KEMP Hospice, visit www.yourhospicelottery.org.uk/hospices/kemp-hospice.aspx for more information.
 
Lottery players must be 16 or over.
