All the profits from our seasonal raffles are paid across to St Giles Hospice (Registered Charity 509014) from St Giles Hospice (Promotions) Ltd T/A St Giles Hospice Lottery.
Last year (2020/21) we passed £92,095 across to St Giles from our Summer and Christmas raffles, plus an additional £54,236 in add-on donations. The money raised by our raffles helps fund vital care for local people and their families living with a terminal illness. The amount paid to the hospice equates to 59% of our total raffle ticket income, after the deduction of prizes (16%) and expenses (25%). We always try to keep our costs to a minimum to ensure we raise as much as we can for the hospice and the amount paid to St Giles is more than double the legal minimum of 20% of proceeds for a charity lottery like ours.
Our 2020 raffles raised over £200,000 in ticket and donation income – thank you so much! We’ve never needed your support more than we need it today and we hope that our community will continue to support us through our raffles this year. Every raffle ticket sold helps us continue to care for local people and their families – like Chas and his family. Read their story here.
By playing our raffle, you are helping us continue to be there for more local people and their families when they need us.
Your support matters. Thank you.
