Hos­pice launches an­nual fes­tive raf­fle

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

AN IM­PRES­SIVE £10,000 is up for grabs in a fes­tive raf­fle aimed at supporting care for peo­ple with life­lim­it­ing ill­nesses.

The Le­ices­ter­shire hos­pice, Loros, has launched its an­nual Christ­mas fundraiser with tick­ets at just £1 a pop.

Last year’s win­ners Paul and Linda Giles, of Lut­ter­worth, are treat­ing them­selves to a dream trip to Canada with their win­nings.

Linda said: “We saw buy­ing a raf­fle ticket as a do­na­tion to Loros, we never had any in­ten­tion of ac­tu­ally win­ning.

“We are both ex­tremely in­ter­ested in wildlife, so we will be putting the money to­wards a re­ally nice hol­i­day to Canada, where we will be able to see the lo­cal po­lar bear pop­u­la­tion.”

Lot­tery man­ager Liz Sin­gle­ton said: “Who wouldn’t want to be £10,000 bet­ter off? Es­pe­cially at Christ­mas time.

“With tick­ets just £1, this is too good an op­por­tu­nity to miss and it’s all for a good cause too.”

The win­ner scoops a huge £10,000 while the sec­ond prize is £500, the third £250, and there are five run­ner-up prizes of £50.

Tick­ets for the raf­fle are on sale up un­til Sun­day De­cem­ber 3 with the draw tak­ing place on Wed­nes­day De­cem­ber 13.

Last year’s win­ter raf­fle raised more than £120,000 for Loros and the team is hop­ing this year’s re­sult will be even bet­ter.

Raf­fle tick­ets can be pur­chased from any of the 28 Loros shops across the city and county, as well as from the hos­pice it­self. Visit loros.co.uk/raf­fle or call 0116 231 8430 for more in­for­ma­tion.
