One lucky winner will be picked from thousands in just over two weeks to drive away a brand new KIA Rio in the St Richard’s Hospice annual car raffle.

The charity is urging anyone who hasn’t yet bought a ticket to go online to http://www.strichards.org.uk/raise-funds/car-raffle/ where they can be purchased for just £2 each.

Thanks to support from the community, ticket sales have already raised over £26,000 towards the hospice’s care to patients and their families living with life-threatening illnesses.

The raffle is kindly sponsored by Edwards Motors, Worcester Racecourse, The Valley, Gemini ARC and Droitwich Print.

Charlie Homer, St Richard’s Community Fundraiser said, “We have been out and about selling raffle tickets all across Worcestershire and have been delighted with the support.  It’s a great prize to win the KIA Rio with three years’ servicing package and with just weeks to go we don’t want anyone to miss the opportunity to buy tickets. It’s so easy to do online and all the funds help support our care of patients and families.”

Supporters who have received printed raffle tickets are asked to please return payment, counterfoils and any unsold tickets by 10am Thursday, 24th March to St Richard’s Hospice at Wildwood Drive, Worcester WR5 2QT. The raffle will be drawn at 2pm on Thursday, 31st March.

St Richard’s Hospice provides free specialist palliative care for patients living with life-limiting illnesses and supports their families. Each year the hospice team supports over 2,600 patients and family members in Worcestershire with compassion, kindness, dignity and respect.

Patients are cared for in Day Hospice, the 17-bed In-patient Unit or in their own homes by a specialist professional team as well as many trained volunteers.

In the In-patient Unit, specialist staff are on hand 24 hours a day to manage patients’ symptoms and where, if appropriate, patients may spend the last few days of life in comfort and dignity. St Richard’s is an independent charity and is grateful for all donations to help it to continue its work.
