Be in with a chance of winning £5,000 in our Christmas raffle… but be quick, ticket sales close soon
In the midst of Christmas shopping and planning, don’t forget to add our charity draw to your list.
The last day to buy a ticket – and be in with a chance to win £5,000 in time for Christmas – is December 10, and the draw takes place a week later.
Our lottery manager, Karen Swindells, said: “We turn every ticket sold into care for local families living with incurable illness so supporting our raffle makes a real difference.
Raffle supporters had so far contributed the equivalent of one day of care to 80 local families, she said.
“Our families really do appreciate what our supporters do for them, so please don’t leave it too late to buy your ticket,” she added.
“This year, we’ve made it easier to buy tickets in any of our 29 high street shops and I thank everyone who’s done that to date. And if you’re not in town shopping, you can also buy tickets through our website.
“The raffle is a fantastic way to give a gift of care to the community this Christmas – we receive £1 towards our caring services and supporters get the chance to win a £5,000 jackpot, what’s not to like?” said Karen.
This year’s raffle campaign has been led Kimberley Langford whose partner Dean Prentice was cared for by us before he passed away last year.
Kimberley said we had given her and Dean the time to make memories she would always treasure.
Tickets are available online here, at any of the charity’s 29 shops and also from the receptions at its two main hospice sites in Telford and Shrewsbury.
Players must be aged over 16. The final date for buying a ticket is December 10 2021 and the raffle is drawn on December 17 2021.
