All the profits from our seasonal raffles are paid across to St Giles Hospice (Registered Charity No. 509014) from St Giles Hospice (Promotions) Ltd T/A St Giles Hospice Lottery.

Last year (2022/23) we passed £96,142 across to St Giles from our Summer and Christmas raffles, plus an additional £26,232 in add-on donations. The money raised by our raffles helps fund vital care for local people, and their loved ones, living with a terminal illness. The amount paid to the hospice equates to 62% of our total raffle ticket income, after the deduction of prizes (15%) and expenses (23%). 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 triple the legal minimum of 20% of proceeds for a charity raffle like ours.

Our 2022 raffles raised over £180,000 in ticket and donation income – thank you so much! 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 loved ones. Want to know more? Joan’s story.

By playing our raffle, you are helping us continue to be there for more local people, and their loved ones, when they need us.
