Hospice car raffle winner picked at end of month

 There are just three weeks left before a lucky winner is picked to drive off in a new Mazda 2 in the St Richard’s car raffle.

Thousands of tickets have already been snapped up for just £2 each with all the funds helping St Richard’s provide compassionate care to patients living with life-limiting illnesses and support for their loved ones.

One lucky winner will drive away with a brand new Mazda 2, in a colour of their choice. For the first time, the hospice is offering a second prize of £300 High Street vouchers and third prize of £150 Marks and Spencer vouchers.

Charlie Homer, St Richard’s Community Fundraiser said, “This is a great way to support the hospice and also be in with a chance to win a fantastic prize! Imagine hearing the news you have won a brand new car – if you buy a ticket that could be you!  The raffle is very popular and last year raised more than £40,000 towards our care.”

The raffle is kindly sponsored by Edwards Motors, Worcester Racecourse, Karndean Design Flooring and Droitwich Print and Spa Design.

Tickets are on sale and can be purchased from St Richard’s Hospice shops across the county; St Richard’s Hospice in Wildwood Drive, Worcester, or by telephoning the Fundraising Department on 01905 763963. Tickets are also available online

The draw will take place at St Richard’s Hospice, Wildwood Drive, Worcester, at 2pm on 31st March, 2017.
