The top-draw prize for won­der­land ball

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE -

SOME lucky per­son will be get­ting an enor­mous, car-shaped present un­der their tree this Christ­mas – and there’s still a chance it could be you.

A draw for the top prize of a Ford KA Zetec, worth £10,170, will take place at next week­end’s Win­ter Won­der­land Ball at the Mere Golf Re­sort near Knutsford.

The event has be­come a firm fix­ture in East Cheshire Hospice’s fundrais­ing cal­en­dar and, al­though the ball it­self is sold out, there are still draw tick­ets avail­able at £100 each.

The car has been do­nated by Sydney Jackson and Son in the hope of rais­ing money for the hospice.

This is the sec­ond car the Prest­bury-based com­pany has do­nated to the hospice – the last one rais­ing an amaz­ing £30,000.

East Cheshire Hospice event man­ager, Jes­sica Ruth says: “We’re thrilled to have such a great raf­fle prize. I can’t wait to see the look on the win­ner’s face as we hand them the keys to a brand new car for Christ­mas.

“If it raises any­thing like the last one did, it could sig­nif­i­cantly boost our bed ap­peal to buy new in­pa­tient beds at a cost of just over £9,000 each.”

Tick­ets can be pur­chased on­line now at eastcheshire­hos­pice.org. uk/win­ter­wheels.

They are also avail­able from the hospice re­cep­tion, char­ity shops and from PR Jones, Jew­ellers in Ch­ester­gate, Mac­cles­field.
