Exciting news at HLP – introducing our new Chairman, John Pettitt.
John became Chairman last month and replaces Tony Hardware who has retired to the West Country. We’d like to thank Tony for all his support and hard work and we wish him all the best.
John says of his new role:
” I first became involved with hospices when my wife worked as fundraising manager for one of HLP’s hospice partners. I have a huge admiration for all who support hospice care and wanted to contribute in some way. Upon my retirement last year I was approached by and joined HLP as an Independent Director. When the current chairman retired this year it seemed the perfect way to further my involvement and help support HLP’s great work in contributing over £9m to local hospices since its inception”
Welcome John, and we all look forward to working with you.
We have launched our annual Christmas Superdraw which helps to raise vital funds for local hospices and your help can make a massive difference.
Tickets are now on sale and there are some great prizes on offer including a top prize of £5,000.
Tickets cost £1 each and are available to buy online or by calling The Hospice Lottery office on 01442 891459.
We run two Superdraws a year as a way to raise additional funds for our partner hospices.
Every ticket that’s purchased really does make a difference. For example, thanks to the generous support of everyone who took part in our Summer Superdraw, the money raised was enough to fund over 1,800 hours of specialist nursing care.

Thanks to the generous support of everyone who took part in our recent Summer Superdraw, we are delighted to announce that we raised over £45,800 for our local partner hospices.
This is enough to fund over 1,800 hours of specialist nursing care in patients’ homes, which is a fantastic result.
The winner of the £5,000 first prize (pictured) was delighted when we phoned to tell her the news.
She joined The Hospice Lottery fourteen years ago in memory of a close friend who was cared for by Florence Nightingale Hospice in Aylesbury: “When I went to visit my friend, I expected it to be the saddest place, but it wasn’t. The all-round care that she received, both clinical as well as emotional, was incredible. All the nurses treated my friend as an individual, not just a patient, right up to the end. The special care that she received meant so much to her and her husband.”
Speaking of her win, she said: “Winning the money is life-changing for us, with my husband being self-employed it has given us some security. He has a big birthday next year and we are planning a trip to Italy. We can now go away without feeling guilty.”
A big Thank You to everyone who bought tickets in our Summer Superdraw 2016 – you raised an extra £45,806 for our Partner Hospices!
