In it to win it
Introducing Cornwall Hospice Care’s Summer Raffle 2019.
Providing specialist care for patients, their families and carers affected by terminal illness, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Cornwall Hospice Care’s clinical teams support in and out patients at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell, St Julia’s Hospice in Hayle and in Cornwall’s hospitals, care homes and in the community.
“every single person makes a difference”
To help pay for this specialist care, the charity runs regular raffles and lotteries. In fact, just last year, these raffles raised £51,135, paying for an incredible 2,556 hours of nursing care. This year, the team are delighted to announce that tickets are now available for their Summer Raffle 2019!
There are some incredible prizes to be won – a first prize of £2,000, second prize of £500, third prize of £250, with ten £25 prizes available to the runners up. Along with buying tickets for yourself, Cornwall Hospice Care encourages you to lend a helping hand by selling tickets to your friends and colleagues – all you have to do is get in touch, and they’ll be happy to send you a book of tickets.
Every pound you donate makes a difference. The difference made by supporters can be summed up by just one of the families in Cornwall the charity has been caring for: “However sad it is to lose someone that is dear to you, Mount Edgcumbe Hospice is a place that provides dignity, respect and wonderful care, not only to the person that is very ill, but to all of the family. It is a place that’s full of love and quite uplifting in such dramatic times. The specialist nurses, volunteers, chefs and cleaners – just every single person makes a difference.”
Whether you’re buying for yourself or doing a whip round in the office in the hopes of winning the big £2,000 first prize, you’ll be doing your bit to support the invaluable work done by Cornwall Hospice Care.
