The more people that join – the more we receive!

Hospice of the Valleys is one of a number of hospices throughout Great Britain supported by Local Hospice Lottery and all profits are donated to hospice care. By sharing management costs and overheads, Local Hospice Lottery are able to offer both a larger prize fund to players (the biggest of any hospice lottery!) and provide more money for hospice care. Local Hospice Lottery will give between 50% and 80% of profits from individuals playing in support of Hospice of the Valleys Trust to Hospice of the Valleys. For each £1 entry in the weekly draw Local Hospice Lottery gives an average of 60p to hospice care.

A full list of the charities supported, along with full terms and conditions and a guide on how to play, are available on the Local Hospice Lottery website, or upon request from ‘Freepost Local Hospice Lottery’.

To help us to recruit players, a team of paid fundraisers will be working in the local area both door-to-door and at venues. Each member of the team will be wearing a uniform and will have a Local Hospice Lottery photo identity card with them. You can view members of the team on the Local Hospice Lottery website by clicking here

Thank you so much for helping and good luck in the weekly draws!

* The £1,000 prize can roll over to a maximum of £25,000 (excluding Super Draw weeks where the £1,000 prize will always remain £1,000)!

Running in her dad's memory

Charlotte Ralph has raised almost £2000 for Hospice of the Valleys by running the Newport Marathon in memory of her dad. Charlotte’s father, Andrew was a keen runner himself and had been a member of the Lliswerry Runners for around seven years and took part in several half and full marathons. It wasn’t until Charlotte left university that she began joining her Dad on his runs and then joined the Lliswerry Runners herself.

Initially Charlotte would struggle to keep up, saying:

“At first I was always behind him but he would always run with me and never leave me behind,”

Through commitment and perseverance Charlotte became fitter and faster and could finally keep up with her dad:

“When I got faster he would always say that ‘I had age on my side', unfortunately, when he got ill he had to give up running which he hated.”

Even after having to give up his own running, Andrew was so supportive of his daughter that he would be at every single race, always keen to spur her on.

This year, Charlotte took part in her first ever marathon in her dad’s memory, raising funds for the Hospice who supported him in the final stages of his illness. Taking on such a big challenge not only demonstrates the special relationship between Charlotte and her father, but shows Charlotte’s natural determination to overcoming obstacles to reach positive outcomes even in spite of devastating circumstances.

Charlotte has said that she chose the Hospice of the Valleys because of the “great support network” they provided for the family during her dad's cancer battle. And that:

“After my father passed away they called to see how we were and were just amazing. As I had never done a marathon before I knew it would be something that I could do to raise money for them.” Charlotte also wants to say a special thanks to the Lliswerry running club who helped in her fundraising.
