Hospice Lotteries Association Conference
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 conference due to take place at Walton Hall
Whilst we are all disappointed our main priority is the wellbeing and safety of our members, key note and workshop speakers, exhibitors as well as the staff at Walton Hall. We feel this is the right decision to make, especially as the timing of when things will improve is unknown and gatherings, or the allowance of them, may be restricted for some time to come
But do not despair!
We are holding a Virtual 1 Day Conference
Wednesday 16th September 2020
This year’s conference will be free of charge for the full day's itinerary
Add the date to your diary and inform your colleagues – Full details to follow

1 Day Virtual HLA Conference
The day will provide a network of support and training, allowing delegates to benefit from each other’s experiences by sharing information, pick up new ideas as well as learn about updates in current legislation.
There is no charge for attendance and we are not restricting attendees, so if you have colleagues that wouldn’t normally attend our annual live conference but would benefit from the sessions that we are offering do please invite them to attend.
We would love to see you attending for the full day of events, but it is also possible to select each session individually.
Please note: This year's conference is only open to hospices/ lotteries. We will not accept registrations from suppliers or exhibitors.
