An upcoming charity raffle offers the chance to win up to £5,000 whilst raising funds for a charity dedicated to helping thousands of people affected by untreatable illnesses.
Severn Hospice provides care for thousands of people living with incurable illnesses across Shropshire and Mid Wales. In its 32-year history, Severn Hospice has provided free support to more than 34,000 people. Every year the charity helps over 2,000 people, driven by a central belief that ‘when cure is no longer possible, care is.’
The charity was badly affected by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, which saw its normal fundraising activities cancelled and its charity shops, which normally bring in £1 million every year, forced to shut. Nonetheless, the hospice staff stayed hard at work.
Severn Hospice relies on donations to fund its work, having to generate two-thirds of its running costs through fundraising activities. It runs two raffles every year, each with a top prize of £5,000.
Players can enter the Christmas raffle any time between now and 10th December 2021, with the draw taking place a week later on 17th December. Tickets cost just £1 each, and the website lists the odds of winning a prize as 1 in 2860, which has better odds than even the easiest UK lottery to win.
Karen Swindells, lottery manager at Severn Hospice, said: “Despite the pandemic we just couldn’t stop caring and the support we have received over the past 18 months has been outstanding.
“Our Christmas raffle is a win, win for anyone who plays: they are in with the chance of winning the top prize of £5,000 or any one of 42 other cash prizes and they are also supporting a local charity, one that cares for local people.”
KImberley Langford, who lost her partner to cancer last year, has encouraged people to take part in the lottery to help the hospice continue to provide the high-quality care for which it is known.
“Please support them, just like they supported us during Dean’s journey. Their work is vital, and their Christmas raffle raises thousands of pounds towards it.”
The raffle will be drawn on 17th December and the deadline to enter is a week earlier, on 10th December. To buy your ticket and help raise money for this cause, go to the Severn Hospice website today. Entrants must be 16 or over and buy tickets via debit card.
