East Lancashire Hospice

Thousands up for grabs in 35th anniversary raffle draw

East Lancashire Hospice is giving away £3,500 to one lucky winner to celebrate their 35th anniversary this summer.

The ‘Bumper Raffle’ is just one of many events that has been planned for the anniversary of the hospice, which has served East Lancashire for 35 years in June. The prize draw will take place on Friday 30 August, with tickets available here from 17 June 2019.

Happy 35th Birthday

The money raised from the raffle tickets, which will replace this year’s Christmas raffle, will go towards funding the services that East Lancashire Hospice provides for those with life-limiting illnesses in the area, including In-patients, Community Services and Creative and Support Therapy (CaST).

Gaynor Barlow, Clinical Lead at the Inpatient Unit, said: “Every day I see first-hand the difference that the hospice can make, not only to the patient but to their friends and family too - that difference couldn’t happen without support from fundraising events such as the raffle.”

The £3,500 grand prize has been provided by Blackburn businesses Intack Self Drive and CSH Transport.

Jennifer Quinn, fundraising lead for the hospice said, "We are so grateful to Intack Self Drive and CSH Transport for sponsoring the raffle. The sponsorship enables us to make sure that every penny raised goes towards caring for our patients and their families.”
