Hospice raffle a great success
Hospices render invaluable services within the communities in which they operate, and these indispensable organisations are reliant upon, to a large extent, the public sector for donations, funding and subscriptions.
And so it is with Grahamstown Hospice and Sunshine Coast Hospice, which organise and arrange various fundraising activities and drives on an ongoing basis.
In addition, golf days, social events and competitions are held occasionally in order to generate funds.
A raffle organised recently by Grahamstown Hospice and Sunshine Coast Hospice was enthusiastically supported by friends of the associations and members of the public, resulting in some most welcome funds being raised.
We offer our sincere thanks to all those who purchased tickets.
Residents along the coast and inland to Makhanda and surrounds responded eagerly to requests from ticket sellers to purchase tickets. Your support is much appreciated.
Of course, our appreciation and sincere thanks are also extended to the businesses and individuals who donated prizes, and there were indeed some very attractive prizes on offer.
The awesome first prize of a two-night stay for two at Kwandwe Private Game Reserve was won by Steve Gornall. In all, 10 super prizes were awarded. The prizes were won by: 1st: Steve Gornall – Two-night stay at Kwandwe Private Game Reserve
2nd: Nicki Rosslee – Donation of a lamb spit by Donovan Bridger of Delicious Spitbraais
3rd: Andrew Beer – Samsung Tab E 9.6-inch tablet donated by MTN Grahamstown
