How your support helps

The proceeds from the lottery help fund the care of 1 in 9 of our patients and by playing our lottery, you are helping to care for local people and families living with a potentially terminal illness.

Craig’s story

Alice Johnson sadly passed away in March 2016. Her husband Craig says:

“The level of support I and my children received from St Giles was overwhelming. The Hospice at Home team was spectacular and they also gave Alice round-the-clock care over the entire Christmas period.

Having Alice at home was the best solution, and the help that the team gave also allowed me to get some respite.

When Alice was admitted to the hospice, the staff were fantastic in letting our children and our puppy visit her, which was really important to her. I cant speak highly enough of St Giles.

Don’s story

Our new look lottery leaflet features Don Smith, a day hospice patient from Lichfield, who has been coming to St Giles for seven years. Don, who was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease ten years ago, said he felt honoured to be featured on the new leaflets and posters.

“Being the face of the lottery is wonderful and my family are so proud of me, they joke I will be signing autographs next!

“I’m delighted to be involved because coming to the hospice has really brought me out of my shell. All the nurses are so friendly – I love coming every week.

“I hope people will play the lottery as a way of supporting the hospice, as it’s so important to keep it going.”
