Formed in 1996 as the Farleigh Hospice Lottery, in 2008 LHL started to partner with hospices in other parts of Great Britain by adding expertise and sharing costs via one prize fund, one lottery system, one experienced team and highly effective face-face fundraising. During their first 24 years, LHL have contributed in excess of £28 million to fund hospice care. They currently have 23 hospice partners.
Last year, db associates worked with CEO Gary Hawkes, the Leadership Team and the Board to develop their next strategy. Adapting the McKinsey ‘Strategic Horizons’ model as our framework, we developed plans for three elements of activity;
Existing Core Business - how more growth could be secured from areas of established strength
Emerging Opportunities – newer forms of activity which could be nurtured to become significant income streams, such as digital recruitment of lottery players,
Imagining the Future – identifying as yet untapped areas that could be developed for future growth.
Gary Hawkes says, ‘On the back of this strategy, during the next 5 years we aim to contribute a further £40 million in sustainable, regular planned income to local hospice care. We really appreciate David’s support, guidance and facilitation to help us develop our new strategy. I would happily recommend him to other charities and social enterprises.’
