2019 Million Pound Lottery film – Community Support

Community support comes in a variety of ways. Every now and then, we are incredibly lucky to receive a property as a legacy. With the help of the community, we are able to transform the house into a family home to rent out, as a sustainable income.

Million Pound Lottery – who will be a millionaire?

The lottery is our biggest fundraiser of the year and a total of £1.3 million in prize money will be given away, with £1 million as first prize, followed by prizes of £100,000, £75,000, £50,000, £25,000 and five prizes of £10,000.

Everyone is invited to come along to watch the draw. Doors open at Sirocco in The Royal Yacht at 17:00 and the draw for the first prize of one million pounds will be made during the special ITV Channel TV programme, which starts at 18:00. Within their programme will be two films about life ‘behind the scenes’ at Jersey Hospice Care.

‘The Million Pound Lottery Draw is my favourite event in our fundraising calendar’ said Jersey Hospice Care’s Chief Executive, Emelita Robbins. ‘Not only is it the biggest, it is also when we get to give back £1.3 million to the very people who have supported Hospice during the year. The sale of the Million Pound Lottery tickets raises £800,000, vital funds that are used to help keep all of the charity’s services free and available to anyone in Jersey with any life limiting condition. The evening is always great fun. After ITV Channel TV’s live coverage finishes, the evening is compered by Peter Mac. There is lots of entertainment and excitement and everyone is welcome to come along and be part of what will be a life changing night for some islanders.’

The winning ticket numbers will be drawn by:

Dick Richomme BEM | Dick is one of our many loyal and dedicated volunteers. He regularly looks after our many corporate gardeners, coordinates our Christmas Cards and this year has been overseeing the renovation of a property left to us as a legacy. Dick was also a regular volunteer for our Million Pound Lottery ticket sales.

Terri Atkinson | Terri has been organising the sell-out event, Stars in their Eyes, for Jersey Hospice Care for over 28 years. During that time, the event has raised over £164,000. Terri also helped us to sell Million Pound Lottery tickets.

Hannah Bechelet | Hannah has supported Jersey Hospice Care for many years, producing some of the Million Pound Lottery films for ITV Channel TV, most memorably ‘Mary’s Story’. Hannah has also volunteered for the charity, helping at events and regularly baking cakes.

Lisa Pugsley | Lisa bid for the chance to be a ball drawer at last year’s Jersey Christmas Appeal Auction.

The results will be published on our social media pages (facebook.com/JerseyHospiceCare and twitter.com/JerseyHospice) and our website.

Gold Standards Framework Cross Boundary Care Event

The event will focus on how the Gold Standards Framework (GSF) promotes high quality person-centred, goal directed care to improve care of dying adults in the last year(s) of life. This will support care settings to meet the Jersey Care Commission Standards and Requirements and the Jersey Nursing Assessment and Accreditation Standards (JNAAS).

This event will also support care settings keen to progress to GSF accreditation by mapping the GSF key tasks to Jersey quality standards. Attaining GSF accreditation ensures that the good work you have developed regarding delivering high quality end of life care is fully integrated and is sustainable long term.

A day trip to France – on a kitesurf!

Thank you to James Miller, Mark Gransbury, Andrew Fish, Jackson Lowe, Tom Buist and John Bouchet who are taking on this crazy challenge to raise money for three charities : Jersey Hospice Care, British Heart Foundation and Mind Jersey.

Andrew Fish explains more about what they will be attempting. ‘We are going to set off from Gorey and try to get to Carteret, which I think is about 20 miles. I don’t think anyone has ever done this before. With a consistent 25 knots, it should take us about an hour and half and worst case is three hours.’

Good luck to them all!

Hospice goes Contactless

We rely on the local community for support through donations, events, fundraising shops, lotteries and legacies. It is only with this support that we can provide the quality and breadth of services we offer, free of charge. This new initiative, which has already celebrated significant success across a range of charities in the UK, will make it quicker and easier for people to donate while they are out and about.

We will be launching this week, with the first donation boxes initially trialled in the Channel Islands Co-operative Society, followed later this month at our partners Café JAC, Bean Around the World, Pizza Hut and La Mare Vineyards. With over 120 partners currently supporting us with cash collection tins on their tills, we hope that further partners will come on board to support the cash-free initiative and help care for the community.

Passers-by will also be able to Tap to Give as they go past our Town Fundraising Shop in Union Street. A bright window display will feature the new device, which you can tap as you go by to donate a fixed amount.

Emelita Robbins, Jersey Hospice Care’s Chief Executive, explains. ‘I’m excited by the thought that, through our increased use of technology, we might increase the funds we raise and so increase the care we can provide to the growing number of people with palliative care needs. Many people have said they would like to donate but don’t carry cash, so it’s great to offer a cashless giving alternative and make supporting us as simple as possible.’

Mark Cox, Chief Operating Officer at Channel Islands Co-operative Society, is trialling the new devices in both Grande Marché stores. He said, We have supported local charities with cash collection buckets at our checkouts across the Society for many years and will continue to do so. We know that over time the number of customers paying by cash has dropped considerably, which will have reduced the level of donations customers have been able to make to charity. For this reason, we are delighted to be able to support Jersey Hospice Care with trialling Tap to Give, a modern equivalent of a collection bucket, in our Grand Marché stores.

A recent survey by Barclaycard concluded that, in an increasingly cashless society, many prefer to pay for items by contactless or chip and pin. One in seven admits to walking away from a donation opportunity at least once last year because they were unable to give using a debit or credit card. This comes amidst predictions that cash will shift from accounting for roughly half (45%) of all payments made in 2015 to just one in four (27%) by 2025 – with debit card payments overtaking notes and coins by 2021.

Tony Moretta from Digital Jersey agrees, ‘We all use cash less and less in our lives to the point where many – including young people and myself – often don’t carry it at all. There are many advantages to this, but it produces problems for organisations that traditionally only take cash, such as charities. They therefore need to innovate like all businesses and make sure they can keep up with their target audience and make it easy for them to continue to support them.’

The contactless units comprise a small card reader sat on a free-standing box, which can sit on a counter top, be mounted on a wall or in a window, or be supplied with a floor stand. The funds collected from each tap go directly to Jersey Hospice Care. They will be pre-programmed with designated amounts, but if a donor wishes to give more they can press a button on the front to increase the donation by set amounts, up to £30.00.

The units connect via GPRS, so they can simply be plugged in and are ready to go and can also be used to collect much needed donations at the many community and fundraising events held to support the Hospice’s work throughout the year.

The units are supplied by Charge Point, a Jersey company with a passion for helping everyone embrace the potential of new technology.
