The Treetops Lottery is a weekly charity prize draw that provides a vital source of funding for Treetops Hospice.
Since the Lottery's inception in 1996 its sole purpose has been to raise money for the charity in order to help continue to provide nursing care and emotional support for anyone affected by a life-limiting illness in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. All net profits from the sale of the lottery tickets go to Treetops Hospice and since 1996 the lottery has raised over £6 million for the charity.
Treetops Hospice is a registered charity and provides support for people with illnesses such as cancer, motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis and end stage respiratory and heart conditions. It also supports their carers and families. All services are provided free of charge. The hospice has to raise £4.3 million every year to run. That’s about £12,000 per day. 70% of this comes from charitable donations and fundraising events.
Treetops Hospice's services include:
- Support and Information Specialist support from diagnosis onwards, for anyone affected by a life-limiting condition.
- Wellbeing Space The purpose built Unit in Risley offers physical, emotional and social care to adults diagnosed with a life-limiting illness.
