Why Join? Hear from our Lottery members.
Lottery members have raised a staggering £580,000 toward the £7 million it costs every year to fund our vital services. Collectively, this contribution is enough to fund one of the five services we provide - our Hospice Day Service. Becoming a member of the Hospice in the Weald Weekly Lottery is one of the easiest ways to make a regular donation. From as little as £2 a week, you can be in with a chance of winning the weekly main prize of £1,500 or one of 42 other cash prizes every week.
This support is extremely valuable as it provides us with a dependable source of income that helps us to plan for the future."
Reasons to join - from our Lottery members
“A lady from Hospice in the Weald came to our house to ask us to sign up to the Lottery. She made me realise that this is a place that one day, me or my family might need to use. Since then, 7 years ago, I have visited friends who were at Hospice in the Weald. It was the best place they could have been at the end of their lives and because of this, it is a charity I am very keen to support.”
"We all get a tremendous thrill winning a prize, but there’s an extra dollop of ‘feel good’ factor when you know your Hospice in the Weald raffle ticket has helped a cause so very dear to one’s heart. I’d call that a true ‘win, win’."
Ann – winner of £750 in the Annual Raffle.
“What a lovely surprise to receive your letter and prize on winning £50.00. Our family have always supported the Hospice, even before the hospice was built, and it was in a house on Tunbridge Road. I still have the card from when I donated to have a daffodil planted in the Hospice gardens. The work and care given by the staff and volunteers, to the patients, and to their families, is simply wonderful and I congratulate you all.” Miss Holman, long term supporter and Raffle winner.
"About 6 years ago I spent a night at the Hospice in the Weald, sitting at the bedside of my dying friend. There was such an atmosphere of peace and comfort throughout the Hospice. I called the nurses a few times and they came and gently eased and calmed both my friend and me. They were like guardian angels, just there, just what we needed. I feel sure this will be the experience of many and so I hope that in some small way, by supporting the weekly Lottery, this level of care can be maintained." Vickie Bown, Lottery member.
"You took such great care of my very good friend Kate Crouch who died on 21st December 2015. When I visited Kate, she spoke very warmly about all the staff and you made her last days comfortable which was so important." Mrs Hubbard, Lottery member.
I used to work for Hospice in the Weald as a volunteer for many years so the charity has always been close to my heart. I was a volunteer in the Homecare section for a few years, and then as one of the founder members in the Flower department when I used to give demonstrations to the patients and indeed some staff, at special times of the year. There was always an extremely happy atmosphere in the Hospice and it was a pleasure to meet all the staff and patients. Since moving to a new area, I've continued to support the essential good work the Hospice provides, through my Lottery membership. June Hubbard, Lottery member.
