Fundraise & Get Involved

We need to raise over £8 million every year to provide outstanding Hospice care to the local community. To get involved with our fundraising activities, design your own, or make a donation, use the information on this page.

Join our weekly Lottery

Joining our weekly Lottery is one of the easiest ways you can give your support

Collectively, our members make a huge difference, because the money raised by our lottery provides vital regular income that helps us reach more patients and those important to them. There are 43 cash prizes to be won every week, with the top prize being £1500 followed by £200 for the 2nd prize winner, £100 for 3rd and 40, £5 winners.

When you join our lottery, you have the option to round up your payment to add a small donation alongside your membership fee.

Each year, the contributions from our lottery members raises hundreds of thousands of pounds towards the £8 million it costs to fund our services. The hospice is not part of the NHS and we rely on the generosity of our community to help us fund our vital and free of charge services.

“I lost my Mum last year and she was in the Hospice for 6 days. Everyone was so kind and caring, to both me and my Mum. I was just blown away by the staff and the care she received; it has left a place in my heart. Thank you so much for caring for my Mum, she passed very peacefully with dignity and me by her side. Work and personal pressures don’t allow me much time so that’s why I signed up for the Lottery – this is my way of supporting Hospice in the Weald.” Lorrae – Lottery Member

“My dear Nan was fortunate to spend her last days in the Cottage hospice at Five Ashes. I’ve worked in the health care industry for 23 years now and the care and the respect I witnessed at the Cottage Hospice from all the staff towards my Nan and family was amazing. They enabled my Mum and Aunty to stay with my Nan 24 hours a day until her peaceful passing, and the rest of our family to visit at any time of day. The Hospice in the Weald are so important and need all the support they can get to allow them to continue their fantastic work. We as a family will forever be indebted to them.Fay – Lottery Member
