Since joining in 2005 we have received over
from The Hospice Lottery Partnership
The money raised through The Hospice Lottery Partnership goes to Michael Sobell Hospice Charity which funds Michael Sobell House, an inpatient unit in Northwood, also supported by Harlington Hospice.
Since 1977, Michael Sobell House has offered a comforting and nurturing space for people to stay, both temporarily to gain support with symptoms, and to experience their last moments if this is their wish.
Michael Sobell House has a twelve bedded unit for people to come and stay from early in their illness through to their last moments. In some instances, those close to them are also able to stay over.
“The care here is second to none…They’re a different league of nursing, a special type of people. They are angels.” – Catherine, who stayed at Michael Sobell House
What matters to you matters to us, and we strive to personalise each person’s stay as much as possible – right down to the colour of their duvet. We have a spacious and bright cafe area to sit, chat and enjoy freshly made food prepared; our chefs are dedicated to working with each individual to prepare tasty meals they enjoy, catering to all dietary requirements. People staying at the House are also welcome to order a takeaway curry or enjoy a pizza and film night with family and friends!
Inside Michael Sobell House, our tranquil Japanese-style garden welcomes you as you come through the front doors. Our landscaped garden, maintained by volunteers, is a place where you can relax in a natural environment amongst greenery and listen to the birds.
“The gardens are beautiful and as relatives, we found it so peaceful and calming to sit out awhile in nature and recharge our batteries.” – Family member of someone staying at Michael Sobell House
It costs £2.2 million every year to run Michael Sobell House: your generosity in playing The Hospice Lottery forms an essential contribution towards this.
As a charity, we could not continue to fund our essential local services without the donations from our lottery supporters.
Michael Breen, Deputy Chairman, Michael Sobell Hospice Charity
